SQL Azure

Posted on December 5, 2011 By

The Windows Azure platform offers the optional SQL Azure database as a supplement to the rudimentary data storage provided by the Storage AppFabric.  Unlike the storage appFabric, SQL Azure is a cloud-based relational database that is an extension of Microsoft SQL Server.  This multi-tenant, highly scalable database runs in the Azure cloud.  This cloud-based database supports the same T-SQL version of SQL as existing SQL Server databases.  In addition, SQL Azure offers standard relational database features such as triggers, views, stored procedures, and indexes.
