Blue Syntax is pleased, and very excited, to announce the general availability of Enzo Backup for SQL Azure. It took a monumental effort to put this product together. The hardest part was designing the backup and restore routines in a way that would not constently trigger the throttling safegaurds in SQL Azure. In addition to the typical retry logic, adaptive loading algorithms that know how to "slow down" the data read/load based on specific error conditions was also incorporated, while keeping its internal operations in parallel.
Microsoft MVP's will have access to this backup utility at no charge. You'll quickly see that the tool is very easy to use and user-friendly, and no question the most complete backup utility available to date for SQL Azure. To get a free license, simply email firstname.lastname@example.org.
