Windows Azure SQL Database - Uploading Data by Using the bcp Utility 03/10/2014

While using a custom SSIS-based project to upload content of an arbitrarily chosen table from an on-premise SQL Server database to Azure PaaS-based SQL Database provides the most flexibility its inherent complexity might not be justified in more simplistic scenarios. Marcin Policht presents an alternative approach that addresses this concern by employing the bcp utility, which not only eliminates the need for any custom development, but also rivals SSIS in terms of its data transfer efficiency.
