Ready for SQL Azure? New Service Tells You

Along with the "SQL Azure Security Services" mentioned earlier this week by Kurt Mackie at Redmondmag.com, Microsoft has also released a SQL Azure Compatibility Assessment.

Microsoft offers an introductory video tutorial for the service, with the following description:

"More and more companies are moving to the cloud. If often starts with moving data that already exists on premises. 'SQL Azure Compatibility Assessment' is a first step in solving the problem of knowing how easily your data can move from SQL Server on premises into the cloud."

A SQL Azure account isn’t required, just a Windows Live ID.

If you’re considering moving to the cloud, give it a try and let us know how it works by commenting here or dropping me a line.
