SQL Azure in Development Fabric RRS feed

  • Question

  • We faced scalability challenges migrating MySQL to Azure, so we wanted to try-out SQL Azure. For this we installed SSMA (SQL Server Migration Assistant), but looks like SSMA doesn't allow migration of the data from MySQL to the Development Fabric. SSMA is only for migration of data from MySQL to the SQL Azure in the Cloud.

    We are stuck not able to perform an end-2-end testing of Tomcat/SQL Azure in the Development Fabric. The only option left is to install SQL Server 2008 Express Edition, migrate the data from MySQL using SSMA and connect to SQL Server 2008 Express Edition from Tomcat in the Development Fabric.

    What is reason for not being able to test SQL Azure in the Development Fabric?

  • SQL Azure only exists in the cloud. The "local" version of SQL Azure is simply any flavor of SQL Server.
