With SQL Reporting on Azure, developers can use familiar tools such as the Business Intelligence Development Studio and SQL Server Data Tools to author reports, just as they do today when running SQL Server Reporting services on-premises. SQL Reporting on Azure provides consistent APIs to view, execute and manage reports along with rich formatting and data visualization options.
Additional capabilities of SQL Reporting on Azure include:
Elastic scale and high availability
- The SQL Reporting scales as your requirements grow with easy self-provisioning.
- The Service has built-in high availability and fault tolerance. SQL Reporting is available across Microsoft Data centers around the world.
- With SQL Reporting, you have the ability to export reports to various popular file formats including Excel, Word, HTML, PDF, XML, and CSV.
- The rich authentication and authorization model in SQL Reporting gives secure access to reports and underlying data. It keeps your data secure while offering access to even more users.
SQL Reporting on Azure offers a fully backed SLA and enables you to publish reports to the cloud or embed reports directly within on-premises applications that can be accessed via your browser, mobile devices or desktops.
