Windows Azure: How to Create a SQL Azure Database

In this article, I will show you how to create a new SQL Azure Database. I assume that you already have created a SQL Azure Server.
  1. Login to the Windows Azure Management Portal using your Live ID at http://windows.azure.com/
  2. Once you’re logged in, click the Database button at the lower left of the page.
  3. Click on the Create new SQL Azure Database located in the center of the page.
    Alternatively, if you’re at the Subscription Home, you can click on Create button at the ribbon at the top of the page.

  4. Now in the pop-up wizard, enter your Database name, select the Edition, and the maximum size of the database. Click OK when you’re done. azure_mgmtPortal_nav_database_serverList_withDatabase
Now, you should be able to see your newly created SQL Azure Database under your SQL Azure Server.
