Synchronize Data from Cloud to Cloud (C2C) | SQL Azure Data Sync | Channel 9

About the Video:

This is third in the series of webcasts covering the SQL Azure Data Sync service. In this demo heavy webcast, Sudhesh covers the details of how SQL Azure Data Sync can be used for Cloud to Cloud database sync (C2C scenarios)- cloud databases within the same data center or cloud databases distributed across different data centers. These are very handy scenarios when you want to separate your transactional load from reporting loads, or get data closer to the geography of your users, or distribute your user load by scaling out to multiple databases, and so on.

This video will also touch upon the concepts of how SQL Azure Reporting can be used in combination with Data Sync and how you can use filtering feature of Data Sync to synchronize only part of data from one geography to another (lets say from US to Europe).

SQL Azure Data Sync – An Overview | Channel 9

This is the first in a series of webcasts covering the SQL Azure Data Sync service. In this webcast Mark provides on overview of the service capabilities and target scenarios. There are a couple of slides to introduce the service, but most of the webcast consists of a demo of the service.

See how SQL Azure Data Sync can be used to share data between on-premises SQL Server and SQL Azure applications for hybrid on-premises and cloud-based applications. See also how to sync data between SQL Azure databases for scale-out and having multiple copies of your applications and data located in data centers around the world.

Data in the cloud and on-premise: A Look at the Forthcoming SQL Azure Services – SQL Azure Data Sync and SQL Azure Reporting | TechDays 2011 Belgium | Channel 9

In addition to SQL Azure Database, new SQL Azure services will be available in the near future. In this session you’ll learn about the capabilities of these new services, in what scenarios they can be used and see them in action. Data movement capabilities are critical for cloud-based applications; with SQL Azure Data Sync you will be able to share data between on-premises SQL Server and SQL Azure databases as well as between multiple SQL Azure databases, allowing you to link on-premises and cloud-based applications and make data available to users around the world. Reporting and visualization of data stored in SQL Azure will be enabled with SQL Azure Reporting. See how reports can be authored, deployed and made available to users on the web or embedded in applications.

Using SQL Azure Data Sync Service to provide Geo-Replication of SQL Azure databases – SQL Azu

In this second of a 3 part webcast series, I introduce you to the Data Sync Service for SQL Azure. This service extends on the SQL Azure Data Sync tools’ ability to provide symmetry between SQL Server and SQL Azure where data changes at either location are bi-directionally synchronized between on-premises and the cloud. With SQL Azure Data Sync Service, we have extended that capability to allow you to easily geo-distribute that data to one or more SQL Azure data centers around the world. Now, no matter where you make changes to your data, it will be seamlessly synchronized to all of your databases whether that be on-premises or in any of the SQL Azure data centers.
