SQL Server Migration Assistant (SSMA for MySQL v1.0) has been updated to support migration from MySQL to SQL Azure. This release makes it possible to move data directly and easily from local MySQL databases into SQL Azure, to help you better consolidate your disparate departmental or ad-hoc data into a centrally managed and highly scalable environment on SQL Azure. The SQL Server Migration Assistant toolkits were designed to tackle the complex manual process customers deal with when migrating databases. By using the SQL Server Migration Assistants, customers and partners reduce the manual effort; as a result the time, cost and risks associated with migrating are significantly reduced.
