ASP.NET Universal Providers add provider support in ASP.NET 4 for all editions of SQL Server 2005 and later and to SQL Azure. If you use these providers to develop your application, the application will be ready for cloud environments like Azure. Other than supporting additional storage options, the providers work like the existing SQL-based providers, so that you can easily switch an application to use cloud storage via SQL Azure.
