By the way, you can use SQL Server 2008 R2 (CTP) where the SQL Server Management Studio works with Azure (without having to use workarounds)
Download it here http://www.microsoft.com/sqlserver/2008/en/us/R2Downloads.aspx

This topic is changing fast. I fully expect this article to be out of date in a year from now. Windows 7 will work with SQL Azure SDK too for example.

I'm not sure where the "only works with Vista and Windows Server 2008" statement comes from. SQL Azure connectivity is working fine from my Windows 7 client.

This is not meant to be a criticism as I don't know when the article was written, but at least with the latest CTP, you can connect to SQL Azure using Windows XP as well. I have connected using SSMS and the Sync Framework. Azure is definitely more interesting and usable than I had thought it would be. The tools aren't there yet, but they are coming. Here's an interesting blog post by Jamie Thomson

This article was written about a month ago, and my guess is the author did not have Win 7 at the time. Many of the articles written will age quickly as technology changes, so adding those comments is not very helpful and a little snide.

If you want to provide information, please feel free to do so, but denigrating someone's work isn't very professional and inappropriate on these forums.

I'm curious to know if anyone is using Azure actively in a production environment yet. I don't really have any intention of moving to it right now, just like to keep up on what's out there and available in case the need ever arises.

I like the availability anywhere component. Granted I have a laptop and could get to my DB's anywhere as well but of course it requires logon to my VPN.

I was reading yesterday about some of the limitations of Azure (for example, no filestream or geospatial capabilities) and I'm also wondering if those are big enough drawbacks for people not to adopt.

Just hopefully fostering good discussion.

AFAIK, Azure is beta now. I'm sure there are some people using it, but it should go live, and start to cost $$ in Jan 2010

Yes, AFAIK billing begins in Jan 2010 - but actual financial transactions wont happen till Feb 2010.
The one month period I believe is to flush out the billing/monitoring and other infrastructure bits being Azure

Apologies. I've been hearing and reading so much about it, thought it was live already.
