We will go through the process of creation of data source that will be hosted in Microsoft Azure. We will use Microsoft Azure SQL databases. Microsoft Azure SQL databases (formerly SQL Azure) is a cloud-based service offering rich data-storage capabilities. It uses a special version of SQL server as a backend so we can easily use that as a data source for Entity Framework.
The first step is to create a new Microsoft Azure SQL database. We will use the Create wizard in the Azure Management portal to create a new Microsoft Azure SQL database.
