Embarcadero DBArtisan for SQL Azure enables organizations to more quickly deploy cloud applications and transfer data to the SQL Azure infrastructure. DBArtisan makes it easier to build both on-premise and cloud-based SQL Azure Database deployments. DBArtisan’s schema extraction and migration facilities provide seamless synchronization of data between a SQL Server database and SQL Azure. This combination of databases on and off premises help organizations reduce in-house IT infrastructure costs and increase availability of certain data sets to offsite consumers.
Why Use DBArtisan?
SQL Azure is a natural choice for enterprise cloud implementations and especially for enterprises already using SQL Server. SQL Server users can leverage their existing knowledge in T-SQL development and a familiar relational data model to achieve symmetry between SQL Azure and existing on-premises databases. DBArtisan’s schema extraction and migration let developers quickly migrate the existing SQL Server database schema to SQL Azure.
