    The Microsoft SQL Server Data-Tier Application Framework (DACFx) is a component which provides application lifecycle services for database development and management for Microsoft SQL Server and Microsoft Azure SQL Databases.

    DacFX supports various database deployment and management scenarios for SQL Server and Microsoft Azure SQL Databases including extracting / exporting a live database to a DAC package, deploying a DAC package to a new or existing database, and migrating from on - premise SQL Server to Microsoft Azure. This functionality is exposed via the DACFx managed API. DACFx can target SQL Server 2008, 2008R2, 2012, 2014, 2016 and Microsoft Azure SQL Databases. DACFx also provides the command-line utility SqlPackage.exe for creating and deploying.dacpac and .bacpac packages. DACFx supports scenarios provided by SQL Server client tooling including SQL Server Data Tools and SQL Server Management Studio.
