  • Azure Functions to Schedule SQL Azure operations

    One of the things that I miss a lot when working on SQL Azure is the ability to schedule jobs, something that one normally does via SQL Server Agent when running on premises. To execute scheduled task, on Azure, Microsoft recommends to use Azure Automation. While this is surely one way of solving the problem, I find it a little bit too complex ...

  • Apache Zeppelin for SQL Server/Azure via Docker

    For those of you that are interested in Big Data, you may be interested in knowing that I've just release the first version or a working docker image that simplifies *a lot* the usage of Apache Zeppelin in a Windows environment. As you may know I'm working  on a SQL Server / SQL Azure interpreter for Apache Zeppelin in order to have a good ...

  • Using Apache Zeppelin on SQL Server

    At the beginning of February I started an exploratory project to check if Apache Zeppelin could be easily extended in order to interact with SQL Server and SQL Azure. In the last week I’ve been able to have everything up an running. Given that I’ve never used Java, JDBC and Linux since the nineties when I was at university, I’m quite pleased of ...

  • Geek City: A Grammar Geek in the Cloud

    Those of you who know me well know that I am usually a stickler for spelling, grammar and proper word usage. I may have even lost a few friends because of what some people see as obsession. I am not infallible, and I do make typos, but I like to try to correct them if possible as soon as I discover them (or as soon as they are brought to my ...

  • Continuous deployment of SSDT database projects to Windows Azure using Team Foundation Service

    Continuous deployment is described by Wikipedia as: Most CI systems allow the running of scripts after a build finishes. In most situations, it is possible to write a script to deploy the application to a live test server that everyone can look at. A further advance in this way of thinking is Continuous Deployment, which calls for the software ...

  • Northwind now available on SQL Azure

    Two weeks ago I made available a copy of [AdventureWorks2012] on SQL Azure and published credentials so that anyone from the SQL community could connect up and experience SQL Azure, probably for the first time. One of the (somewhat) popular requests thereafter was to make the venerable Northwind database available too so I am pleased to say that ...

  • Move a SQL Azure server between subscriptions

    In September 2011 I published a blog post SSIS Reporting Pack v0.2 now available in which I made available the credentials of a sample database that one could use to test SSIS Reporting Pack. That database was sitting on a paid-for Azure subscription and hence was costing me about £5 a month - not a huge amount but when I later got a free Azure ...

  • My first few minutes with SQL Azure

    I've finally decided to play a little with SQL Azure. I have to say, my first few minutes have been less than fantastic. When I go to http://sql.azure.com/ this is what I see: It seems that I don't have an invitation code, so I guess I'll sign up for the mailing list down at the bottom, and try to get one.  Only problem is, when the link ...
