SQL Server Integration Services (SSIS) can be used effectively as a tool for moving data to and from Windows Azure SQL Database, as part of the total extract, transform, and load (ETL) solution and as part of the data movement solution.

This paper outlines best practices for using SSIS for cloud sources and destinations and for project planning for SSIS projects to be used with Azure or hybrid data moves, and gives an example of maximizing performance on a hybrid move by scaling out the data movement.  Read more...
