New Project Types
Azure Tools for Visual Studio create new project types that you can use in Visual Studio.
When you create a Cloud Service, the wizard creates two different projects for you.
The first time you run your project, the Development Storage gets created. Although this is flat data, it's actually stored inside SQL Server Express.
The Development Fabric includes a user interface for managing the services. Included is the log output for each.
The Development Storage also includes a UI for managing the data.
When you click the Tools menu in the Development Storage, you can open the Table Service Properties window, allowing for further configuration.
