SQL Azure Object Browser

Yesterday, I did a blog post on how to alter a stored procedure. On Microsoft Azure Forum, Gaurav has suggested two very good options. Both of them are a scale down version of SSMS - but are way better than the existing support of SSMS for SQL Azure - they provide decent object browser and you don’t have to cancel the login first time you connect to the SQL Azure database...

1. Cerebrata supports Windows Azure Platform. An online demo can be found on

I am impressed with the functionality offered here

2. SQL Azure Manager by

This is a ClickOnce app and only supports table and views but you can run your TSQL here. One can use a combination of these two apps to simulate almost 75% of the SSMS support and is good enough for most of the routine stuff.
