I'm sorry if this has been solved already, but is there any way one could redeploy Umbraco to Azure without loosing members, i.e. having my Umbraco on Azure setup so members are saved to storage maybe or better yet have some script just copy them from Production to the Staging instance before doing the Swap VIP?

I understand one should not need to redeploy Umbraco often, however I'm about to try and combine mine with a service that could potentially need to be redesigned often, and to make matters worse I might even need to have more than one of those services deployed but have them share my member db.

If you have any other best practice advice how to set such a mechanism up on Azure I'd also be much obliged...TIA
