available21 Jul 2010 6:18 AM
At PDC ‘09, I showed a glimpse of a new Silverlight tool we were working on
to allow you to develop and manage your SQL Azure databases. We showed updated
versions of this at MIX���10 and TechEd North America 2010 and promised for a
CTP this summer. Looking out the window, the sun is shining in Redmond, summer
is here and so is the first CTP of Microsoft® Project Code-Named “Houston”.
What exactly is “Houston”
Microsoft® Project Code-Named “Houston” is a lightweight and easy to use
database management tool for SQL Azure databases. It is designed specifically
for Web developers and other technology professionals seeking a straightforward
solution to quickly develop, deploy, and manage their data-driven applications
in the cloud. Project “Houston” provides a web-based database management tool
for basic database management tasks like authoring and executing queries,
designing and editing a database schema, and editing table data.
