Microsoft Secure Cloud Service for SQL Server Deployments

Microsoft just released a configuration assessment cloud service that helps to check your SQL Server configration deployments and enable DBA's proactively avoid configration problems. But for the tool to work it needs to be installed on Windows server box. So, if you want to play with it then you need a server. It will install both gateway and agent. But you only required to install agent if you don't need it to monitor SQL Server 2008.

To download the new tool or read more you can Read about atlanta (Cloud sql config)

I definately wouldn't put this product on produciton server but can check on my development and test servers to check if the configration is right. The tool collects all configration information and uploads to microsoft portal.

First preview of the portal is shown below.
