All-in-one: Data made simple

Most websites use databases for storing products, users and other data. WebMatrix lets you work seamlessly with data across SQL Server, SQL Server Compact Edition (SQL CE) and MySQL.

Lightweight Database Engine

SQL CE is a lightweight, single-file database engine that can be copied easily alongside your code files. It’s integrated with WebMatrix, and allows you to build data-driven websites quickly.

Create Databases

Easily create a SQL, SQL CE or MySQL database on your computer or a remote server. You can also connect to an existing database directly.

Edit Data and Schema

You can edit your data and schema, using WebMatrix's intuitive interface for any of the supported database engines.

Migrate Databases

If you want to migrate from SQL CE to SQL Server, a single click will do all the work for you.

Publish Databases

WebMatrix uses the Web Deploy protocol to make publishing your SQL or MySQL database to a remote server as easy as copying your files!
