Hi All,

How can we take the backup of database in SQL Azure?
--- i have taken the backup of database by using "AS COPY OF" it has created a database

Now, how can i restore this backup?

Thanks

Microsoft doesn't really support a direct mechanism of backup & restore through Azure. You can do an export/import through the Azure storage. I have a blog post about it here. It's not the same thing as a backup.

You could look at Red Gate's Cloud Services utility. It does a lot of what you'd want in a real backup process plus more.
