SQL Azure

SQL Azure is a specialized version of SQL Server that is available on Microsoft's Azure platform.

For most areas, the SQL Server version hosted by Azure is comparable to SQL Server in terms of what we may need as an Access developer, with most differences being on the DBA/Management end of things and the abstraction of physical location.

In Cloud Computing, an important factor is to be able to hide the physical implementation through a layer of Virtualization (this has many affects that ultimately enable Clouds as we use them today). Because of this, things like access to the physical files of the SQL Azure database are not accessible to consumers. As a result of that, related features/functions within a standard SQL Server instance may not be available in SQL Azure.

For the most part, in terms of DDL and DML, we can use SQL Azure the same as we would use a full instance of SQL Server.
