SQL Server Hosting Toolkit makes moving Databases easy

Posted Friday, December 22, 2006 9:08 AM by C-Dog's .NET Tip of the Day

I saw this tool posted on Scott's blog and I thought it was really cool. There is a new tool called the SQL Server Hosting Toolkit (currently in RC) that makes it really easy to move databases from a local server to a hosting server without having to do database backups. Basically it creates a SQL script that contains the schema for your tables, stored procedures, etc, AND queries to populate the tables with data. I think there have been tools out there to do this before, but this is free and makes it look pretty easy.
