SQLServerCentral Hosts AdventureWorks on Azure

The guys at SqlServerCentral have a great site with lots of resources about the SQL world. And today they made available the “AdventureWorks” sample database online, hosted on Azure, free for everyone to try it out.

It’s a great way to test and get more knowledge on this “database-in-the-cloud” model. Here is the launch article: http://www.sqlservercentral.com/articles/Adventureworks/99290/

And here a step-by-step guide to connect to the actual database: http://www.sqlservercentral.com/articles/Adventureworks/99291/

I could not try it yet, but will do it in a short time and come back to tell the results. Meanwhile, go ahead and check the news!

PS: guide on windowsazure.com on how to connect: http://www.windowsazure.com/en-us/manage/services/sql-databases/how-to-manage-a-sqldb/ (includes a link to SSMS 2012 express download).
