CodeFluent Entities SQL Azure Producer Unveiled!
I am really excited to announce today the forthcoming support of Microsoft SQL Azure in CodeFluent Entities.
What is Microsoft SQL Azure?
Microsoft® SQL Azure™ Database is a cloud-based relational database service (RDBMS) built on SQL Server® technologies. It is a highly available, scalable, multi-tenant database service hosted by Microsoft in the cloud. SQL Azure Database helps to ease provisioning and deployment of multiple databases. Developers do not have to install, setup, patch or manage any software, as all that is taken care of by Microsoft with this platform as a service (PAAS). High availability and fault tolerance is built-in and no physical administration is required.

What is CodeFluent Entities SQL Azure Producer ?
CodeFluent Entities SQL Azure Producer allows you to easily generate code for Microsoft SQL Azure databases. The generated code is fully compatible with the Business Object layer generated by the CodeFluent Entities BOM Producer.
The SQL Azure producer brings many benefits including:
- Ability to develop your application on a local MS SQL Server and deploy it to SQL Azure only when you decide it. This is a key feature that will save you money as you will not consume SQL Azure resources during development phase
- Ensure reversibility in your application as you will be able to select the SQL Server Producer (or Oracle Producer) at any time and regenerate the persistence layer without any impact on the existing application
- Access your SQL Azure database and data using the integrated database explorer available in CodeFluent Entities Modeler
- The next CodeFluent Entities build planned for March 2011 will include a beta version of this new producer.
