I do not really understand this. Whether it's a dumb question.

Is SQL Azure a relational db or it functions much like it?

Using ADO.Internet and LINQ I have produced a relational or non-relational database?

(I understand these questions seem strange......!)


Ok, and among the solutions I have understood an essential factor and that i can know explain better my question.

i.e.: I have produced a non-relational db for my application. Posting it on Azure and loading on SQL Azure the database will the db be relational or otherwise?

It it's still non-relational for that missing of primary secrets and foreign secrets. Am I Going To have any errors?

So the utility on the table Storage service?

Yes, SQL Azure is really a relational database management system. The main difference between SQL Azure and traditional MS SQL Server is the fact that SQL Azure is made to be run rich in redundancy (i.e. multiple instances).

Yes, SQL Azure is fully relational cloud database solution.

Have you try google? First result for "is sql azure relational":

We ought to most likely separate a Relational Database Management System RDBMS along with a relational database.

SQL Server and SQL Azure are RDBMS but you may create databases that aren't relational as they do not possess the requisite secrets, etc.

While using options that come with a RDBMS keeps your computer data secure and keep the integrity of this data. If you don't begin using these features, you need to depend in your application program (which most probably you've written)

A correctly stabilized database will eliminate orphan records and won't allow some invalid data, no matter the customerOrsoftware you're using.

Listed here are Codd's rules designated through 13. I do not think that any in a commercial sense available RDBMS (SQL Server, Oracle, etc.) implements these, truly several are implemented.
