Windows Azure SQL Reporting - now configurable in the new portal

Scott Guthrie blogged yesterday about a raft of new changes to the Azure platform.

Of interest to SQL folk are really three main changes:

* SQL Reporting has made its way into the new portal (ie: you no longer have to flip back to the old portal to work with it. Hopefully Data Sync will do the same soon).

* Better options now exist for downloading blobs from Azure Storage. (This could include, for example, SQL Server backups made using BACKUP TO URL).

* New tools for monitoring the usage and availability of VMs.

For others, it's good to see that you can now upload .cer certificate files, not just .pfx certificate files when working with cloud services, and also interesting to see Android support added to mobile services.
