Targeting Azure Storage: Listing 1: Move from Development Storage to Azure Cloud Storage with a Configuration File Change

The ServiceConfiguration file's <ConfigurationSettings> group contains <Setting> elements to determine the location of Azure Storage Services: In a local SQL Server 2005/2008 Express instance (Development Storage) or Azure cloud storage. This example specifies cloud storage because Development Storage settings are commented. (SHA256 AccountSharedKey settings are truncated for brevity.)
