Embarcadero Announces DBArtisan for SQL Azure Database from Microsoft

Special Edition Helps Organizations Expedite Deployment and Simplify Management of Cloud-Based Databases and Applications

LOS ANGELES (Microsoft PDC) – Nov. 17, 2009 – Embarcadero, a leading provider of multi-platform database tools and developer software, is unveiling a special edition of DBArtisan for SQL Azure at this week’s Microsoft Professional Developers Conference (PDC). DBArtisan is Embarcadero’s database administration tool for heterogeneous DBMS environments. Its schema extraction and migration capabilities enable organizations to more quickly deploy cloud applications and migrate some or all of their existing SQL Server database schema to SQL Azure Database, Microsoft Corp.’s new cloud-based relational database service.

The free special edition trial license, which includes full versions of DBArtisan Standard Edition for SQL Server and DBArtisan for SQL Azure, can be downloaded for free at

DBArtisan for SQL Azure provides for basic database administration at the schema level, including object management and editors, SQL editing and schema extraction, as well as migration utilities to facilitate data migration from Microsoft SQL Server to SQL Azure. The tool enables enterprises to build symmetrical on-premise and cloud-based SQL Azure Database deployments, reducing in-house IT infrastructure costs and making certain data sets more readily available to offsite consumers.

“We are excited to have Embarcadero’s DBArtisan product target Microsoft SQL Azure, the world’s first true relational database service,” said Dave Campbell, a Technical Fellow in the Business Platform Division at Microsoft Corp. “Embarcadero’s DBArtisan for SQL Azure will streamline the data migration and management process for customers who wish to deploy Cloud based solutions on SQL Azure.”
