SQL Server and Azure Integration

With the introduction of SQL Server 2014 the line between SQL Server running in your data center and running in the cloud is becoming more and more blurred.  In this session, we will review the features which are available with SQL Server 2014 and which integrate with Windows Azure.  After reviewing the available features we'll look at how to configure these features and how to build these features out in the real world to reduce your data center footprint quickly and easily.
