I've just posted the first in a series of webcasts for SQL Azure Data Sync over on Channel 9 here.

This first webcast provides a high-level overvew of the service.  There's a couple of slides to introduce the service, but most of the webcast is a demo of the service.

Here's what we've got planned for future webcasts:

  • More detailed walkthroughs for syncing between local SQL Server and SQL Azure as well as between SQL Azure databases.
  • Scenarios where you can use Data Sync in conjunction with other services, such as Reporting Services.
  • Deep dives into specific areas, such as filtering, provisioning, security considerations, best practices, conflicts, and so on.

Feel free to leave a comment with topics you'd like to see us cover in future webcasts.

It's been a few weeks now since we released the Data Sync Preview.  If you've been using the service then please provide us feedback using the feature voting site here.  If you haven't tried out CTP3, then why not? :-)

Thanks, Mark
