Microsoft has released a new SQL Server Migration Assistant for MySQL v1.0 tool which can be downloaded at no cost. As noted in this Redmond Channel Partner article, the new tool facilitates moving files from the open source MySQL relational database management system (through version 4.1), and is designed to help with migrations to Microsoft SQL Server 2005, SQL Server 2008, SQL Server 2008 R2 or SQL Azure, Microsoft's database in the cloud.


The free SQL Server Migration Assistant helps users move to Microsoft SQL Server.

"Microsoft also updated its SQL Server Migration Assistant for Access tool by releasing version 4.2, which is also available for download at no cost. This tool helps users migrate from Microsoft Access (Access 97 and higher versions) to Microsoft SQL Server 2005, SQL Server 2008, SQL Server 2008 R2 or SQL Azure.

"This last part -- migrating to Microsoft's cloud-based SQL Azure -- is a new feature in this Access migration tool. Microsoft is claiming that Access users can continue to use their existing applications built on Access while tapping into SQL Azure, which offers far greater capacity and scale-up potential."
