Windows Azure SQL Reporting is a cloud-based service built on the Windows Azure platform, and based on Windows Azure SQL Database, SQL Server, and SQL Server Reporting Services (SSRS) technologies. Unlike SSRS, which is a software product that you install and maintain, SQL Reporting is a service that is hosted on hardware in Microsoft datacenters. SQL Reporting takes care of provisioning and maintaining the hardware and software layer, freeing you to concentrate on report design and management. All you need to do is sign up for the service, get an invitation code, and add SQL Reporting to your existing Windows Azure subscription. For more information on SQL Reporting billing model, see Accounts and Billing in Windows Azure SQL Reporting.
