SQL Azure – What’s new in SQL Azure Q2 2011 Service Update – Part I

 

Introduction:

In this article we are going to see the list of enhancements done with the SQL Azure Q2 2011 Database Service Update officially announced on 9th September 2011. Microsoft provides this update with much enhanced user interface for the administration of the server and the database in an effective way.

Overview:

Previously Microsoft Azure Team provides the online Data Manager Tool for administering the Schema and data of SQL Azure databases. But with this release they have replaced the Online Data Manager tool with the new SQL Azure Data Management Portal which includes all the functionality of the Data Manager Tool along with the Data Administration Capability including the ability including the Import and Export (CTP). Lets jump start to see the step by step process on the new enhancements of this release.
