Administering the Cloud database using your browser–Silverlight style :)

The SQL Azure Labs site recently made available CTP1 of Project Houston. Through this Silverlight enabled site you can manage a SQL Azure database. You can create objects tables, stored procs, write TSQL queries and view results. So if you are looking for a way to administer a SQL Azure database and currently your organisation doesn't allow you to connect via SSMS over port 1433, then you can use Project Houston that uses HTTP Port 80 (browser).

This makes it easier for your organisation to start developing on the cloud, as you can now administer the database using a web browser and you can build applications on the Windows Azure platform that can connect to SQL Azure. So no excuses to start developing on the cloud.
