SQL Azure Migration Wizard

For those who do not know about this tool, the SQL Azure Migration Wizard is an open source tool that helps you migrate your SQL Server 2005/2008 databases to and from SQL Azure. The tools analyzes your database for any compatibility issues and allows you to either fully or partially migrate your database schema and data to SQL Azure.

Note: A couple of days ago, I had also blogged about the useful SQL Server Migration Assistant v5.0 tool which automates the migration of Oracle, Sybase, MySQL and Microsoft Access databases to SQL server or SQL Azure.

You can use tools of SQL Azure Migration Wizard from command line too.
