    I figured it would be nice to have a list of tools, guides and white papers that might come in handy when one starts playing around with SQL Azure. I'll try and keep this thread up-to-date.

    Tools
    The SQL Azure Migration Wizard allows you to migrate data from your existing SQL Server 2005 and 2008 databases into the cloud.

    If you want to move data over from a MySQL database into SQL Azure, you might find the Microsoft SQL Server Migration Assistant for MySQL useful.

    Microsoft Access also has its own migration wizard: the Microsoft SQL Server Migration Assistant for Access.

    On CodePlex, you can find a download containing a whole bunch of Windows Azure Platform PowerShell Cmdlets.

    Also on CodePlex is the Windows Azure Platform Management Tool (MMC).

    Guides and white papers
    The Windows Azure Platform Training Toolkit offers a vast library of technical content, which should enable you to learn everything you need to get a proper start on the Windows and SQL Azure platforms.

    If you need to migrate a database from Microsoft SQL Server 2005 or 2008 into SQL Azure, it might be good to have a look at the list of Azure Feature Limitations.
