Two limited Community Technology Previews will be available before the end of 2010: The SQL Azure Reporting CTP and the SQL Azure Data Sync CTP 2.

 

SQL Azure Reporting enables developers to enhance their applications by embedding cloud based reports on information stored in a SQL Azure database, and author reports using familiar SQL Server Reporting Services tools and then use these reports in their applications which may be on-premises or in the cloud.

 

The update to SQL Azure Data Sync enables synchronization between on-premises SQL Server and SQL Azure, giving customers greater flexibility in building solutions that span on-premises and the cloud.  

 

Sign up for the CTPs via Microsoft Connect.

 

More to come,

Mitch
