Windows Azure SQL Reporting, a cloud-based reporting service that allows customers to connect to SQL databases in order to publish, view, and manage reports, is being discontinued on Oct. 31, 2014. The reporting service, built on Windows Azure and SQL Server Reporting Services (SSRS), is a Platform as a Service offering. It is being discontinued in favor of an Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) offering, wherein the full SSRS feature set runs on Windows Azure Virtual Machines (VMs). The change exposes more SSRS functionality than was previously available.
