SQL Server Demo

Is there a way I can try the demo without SQL Azure?  How would I setup a configuration database for utilizing SQL Server?

The shard library has two versions. The one currently publish provides a single sharding method: an expanded shard. This model can work with local SQL Server databases. There are instructions on the first page of the demo application on how to add connection strings. There is no configuration database; instead a list of connection strings need to be added to the application configuration file.

The next version, currently in Beta, still provides an expanded shard, but also offers SQL Azure Federation support. Using the SQL Azure Federation library requires an account with SQL Azure.
