ADO.NET Provider Overview
The Azure Management ADO.NET Provider offers the most natural way to access Azure Management data from any .NET application. Simply use Azure Management Data Provider objects to connect and access data just as you would access any traditional database. You will be able to use the Azure Management Data Provider through Visual Studio Server Explorer, in code through familiar classes, and in data controls like DataGridView, GridView, DataSet, etc.
Using the Azure Management Data Provider
The Azure Management Data Provider wraps the complexity of accessing Azure Management services in an easy-to-integrate, fully managed ADO.NET Data Provider. Applications then access Azure Management through the Azure Management Data Provider with simple Transact-SQL.
The CData ADO.NET Provider for Azure Management hides the complexity of accessing data and provides additional powerful security features, smart caching, batching, socket management, and more.
Working with DataAdapters, DataSets, DataTables, etc.
The Azure Management Data Provider has the same ADO.NET architecture as the native .NET data providers for SQL Server and OLEDB, including AzureManagementConnection, AzureManagementCommand, AzureManagementAdapter, AzureManagementDataReader, AzureManagementDataSource, AzureManagementParameter, etc. Because of this you can now access Azure Management data in an easy, familiar way.
More Than Read-Only: Full Update/CRUD Support
Azure Management Data Provider goes beyond read-only functionality to deliver full support for Create, Read, Update, and Delete operations (CRUD). Your end-users can interact with the data presented by the Azure Management Data Provider as easily as interacting with a database table.
