Microsoft is allowing testers to register, as of December 7, for a public Community Technology Preview (CTP) test build of the reporting services technology for its SQL Azure cloud database.

Microsoft SQL Azure Reporting is a cloud-based reporting service built on SQL Azure, SQL Server, and SQL Server Reporting Services technologies that allows users to publish, view, and manage reports that display data from SQL Azure data sources.

The test build that will be made available is designated CTP 2 and will be made available to a “limited” number of testers.
