Our SQL Azure book is finally done! After months of work, research (and waiting for Service Updates ) the book is finally finished. We spent a lot of time on this book, and we wanted to let you know it is out and ready for reading. It should be available on Amazon and other sites know. For topics, we cover the following:

  1. Getting Started with SQL Azure
  2. SQL Azure Design Considerations
  3. Setting up and Configuring your SQL Azure Environment
  4. Security
  5. Data Migration and Backup Strategy
  6. Programming SQL Azure
  7. Reporting Services
  8. Using Entity Framework, REST, and ADO.NET Data Services with SQL Azure
  9. Windows Azure and ASP.NET
  10. Designing for High Performance
  11. Synchronization Services
  12. Performance Tuning
  13. Appendix A—Resources
  14. Appendix B—Supported Features

Now, if you paid attention to the recent Azure announcements at PDC, you'll know that our Reporting Services chapter will soon be out of date. That is to be expected, so Herve and I will more than likely be putting out a "2nd Edition" sometime next year, or maybe just post updates on our blogs. At the rate Microsoft puts out Service Updates, editions to the book might be difficult.

However, please know that you will always be able to find the latest and greatest about Azure on our website!

I got the book and I agree it is fantastic. The one that complemented it somewhat is from Packt publishing
