Are you interested in moving your business applications and data to the cloud but are not sure how to go about it? Look no further; this book covers all you ever wanted to know about taking your relational enterprise data to the cloud using SQL Azure.

This book will show you how to manage SQL Azure using various tools and also guide you in developing enterprise applications and business intelligence solutions.
