Project "Huron" - Early Adopter Program

I wanted to give an update on our Project “Huron” .? For those new to it, this is an incubation project that we have been working on for some time to provide database “friction free” (this is a one fo those Microsoft terms that basically means simple to setup :-)) synchronization capabilities to the Cloud (SQL Data Service) via a hosted Sync Service sitting within the Azure data centers.? The goal is to remove the typical complexities (configuration, scalability, security, etc) involved with sharing database information between local databases such as SQL Server and SQL Compact and provide simple UI tools for configuration and sync components developers can embed in existing applications. One unfortunate scoping that we have decided to make is to temporarily hold off on direct support of Microsoft Access for v1.? Although we realize that there are a LOT of customers that are looking to support this, based on our current resourcing this has been an unfortunate scoping that we have decided to take.? The primarily jusitification was that we already had an existing SQL Server and SQL Compact provider from Sync Framework that we are able to easily re-use which greatly simplified our efforts.? It is our hope that some of these Access customers will consider initially linking their Access forms to a SQL Server database to then synchronize via the cloud in the short term until we can provide the full Access support

System.Data.dll, which contains the System.Data.SqlClient namespace, ships as part of the .NET Framework v2.0 SP1. This version of the .NET Framework ships with Visual Studio 2008, Vista SP1, and Windows Server 2008 and with each release of these products (beta, CTP, or release) there is a slightly different version of the .NET Framework.
