Simplify Deployment

Simplify Database development and deployment across on-premises and the cloud. Allowing developers to build once; deploy and manage anywhere.
Data-tier Application Component Enhancements
  • Introduced in SQL Server 2008 R2, Data-tier Application (DAC) support across SQL Server and Visual Studio.
  • Helps IT and developers to more easily define and contain the schemas.
  • Supports applications, then deploys, imports, and exports DACs more easily across on-premises and public cloud.
Data-tier Application Component (DAC) Parity with SQL Azure
  • SQL Server 2012 and SQL Azure offer ‘anywhere support’ for moving a DAC database between SQL Server databases across server, private cloud or SQL Azure.
  • Enables customers to build once; deploy and manage anywhere.
  • Unprecedented flexibility across IT and developers.
  • Import and export services in the DAC framework enables archiving and migration scenarios between on-premise and cloud database servers.
  • Extract database schema as well as data and serialize it into a new logical and open archive format – a .bacpac file.
  • Import the .bacpac archive into another database server.

Extend Data Anywhere

Extend the reach of data beyond on premises applications to new devices and locations in the cloud.
  • Provides a consistent and open data-feed to power multiple user experiences across the web, devices and desktop with Odata, an open protocol built on widely used web standards.
Data Sync
  • Enables new scenarios with SQL Azure DataSync, a cloud service which provides bi-directional data synchronization between databases across datacenter and cloud.
Data Market
  • Monetize accumulated data through SQL Azure DataMarket that allows organizations to publish data for purchase and consumption by other entities.
