Last week a new set of tools was released to support copying of the data to the SQL Azure databases. SSMA (SQL Server Migration Assistant) was updated to support Microsoft Access and MySQL Databases.
To download the tools, visit the following sites:
- SSMA for Access v4.2 enables Access migration to SQL Azure

These two additions complement previously available assistants for:
- SSMA for Oracle v4.2, enables Oracle migration to SQLAzure
- SSMA for Sybase v4.2, enables Sybase migration to SQLAzure
