  • Start asking yourselves, do I need these?Windows Azure Key FeaturesService hostingService managementStorage – HTTP APIWindows Server - .NET Framework, FastCGI for PHP, ROR, Python, etcDevelopment Tools
  • Demo New ProjectShow Definition and Configuration FilesShow Properties of Web Role to demonstrate how easy it is to configure
  • Show signing upShow portalShow RDP
  • Show foldersShow public/privateShow metadata
  • Remember in our online store, one particular part of the process during purchasing is card payment.
  • The right choice depends on the environment you’re inDatabase administrators go to great lengths in making sure their data is not repeated, this process is called normalization. This ensures data integrity – you don’t want to have to update several tables with the column “name” under it. One drawback to this is performance. With Tables, it is up to the developer to take care of data integrity

    • 1. A Lap Around Windows Azure
      Chris Ismael
      Developer Evangelist
      Developer and Platform Evangelism
      Microsoft Singapore
    • 2. Goals and Agenda
      To get you to sign up for the Windows Azure Introductory Offer 
      http://bit.ly/freeazuresg
      Provide you with the “core concepts” knowledge that would be your foundation in understanding Windows Azure
      Agenda
      Why Cloud Computing?
      Why Would I…
      Define my website/service’s architecture
      Use Blob Storage, Tables, Queues
      Use Windows Azure AppFabric
    • 3. Why Cloud Computing started
      How Windows Azure came about?
      Microsoft’s online services challenges
      Spending a lot of time managing the machines
      Inefficient utilization
      Little resource sharing
      No shared platform or standard toolset for everyone
      Reasons for major cloud providers
      Optimization (extra resources to share) ie Amazon Web Services
      Profit – economies of scale
      Strategic – product franchise
      Extension – customer relationships
      Presence – in market
      Platform – hub master of ISV’s offerings
    • 4. Characteristics of Cloud Computing
      Value Proposition
      Elasticity
      No Commitment
      Reduced Cost
      Consumption-based Pricing
      Extra Capacity
      Faster Time to Market
      Self-Service IT
      SLA – 99.9% (over existing)
      Simplify IT
      Convert CapEx to OpEx
      New Capabilities – ie federated security
      Concerns
      Security
      Performance and Availability (ie storage)
      Vendor Lock-in
      Disaster Recovery
      In-house Capability and Process
      Billing Concerns
      Trust
      Alignment
      Best bet: Try it (bit.ly/freeazuresg)
      From David Pallman (davidpallman.blogspot.com)
    • 5. Sample Scenario – Your typical Online Store
      The Service Model
      Signing up for Windows Azure
      Windows Azure Tool Set
      Portal and Service Management API
      Blobs and Tables
      Queues
      AppFabric Access Control Service (ACS)
      Planning / Architecture
      Purchasing (hardware, software licenses, etc)
      Prototyping / Testing
      Deployment / Management
      Adding new storage
      Decoupling components
      Managing identity (credentials)
    • 6. Planning / Architecture
      Service Model to the rescue!
      Windows Azure Roles
      Templates of commonly-used machine configurations
      Web Role – website / front-end
      Worker Role – background jobs
      VM Role – virtual machine image
      Service Definition and Configuration files
      Consider the effort to get this running:
      • Configuration of machines
      • 7. Networking
      • 8. Port configurations
      • 9. Etc.
    • Creating a Windows Azure application in Visual Studio 2010
    • 10. Things to ponder on:
      This looks like Platform-As-A-Service (PAAS)
      Provides the tools and development environment to deploy applications
      Provides APIs to interact with the cloud components
      IAAS, SAAS
      Can I log-in to view these machines?
    • 11. Signing up for Windows Azure
    • 12.
    • 13. Things to ponder on
      Do I have to use Visual Studio to deploy? (show demo first)
      Is there a way to programmatically control and manage my deployments?
      Service Runtime API – let’s you access manipulate, and respond to the ambient environment in which your code runs (managed, native)
      Service Management API – meant to be run “outside” the cloud to manipulate your running services from outside (HTTP REST, free)
    • 14. Sample Scenario – Your typical Online Store
      The Service Model
      Signing up for Windows Azure
      Windows Azure Tool Set
      Portal and Service Management API
      Blobs and Tables
      Queues
      AppFabric Access Control Service (ACS)
      Planning / Architecture
      Purchasing (hardware, software licenses, etc)
      Prototyping / Deployment
      Management
      Adding new storage
      Decoupling components
      Managing identity (credentials)
    • 15. Storage using Blobs
      Blobs
      No need to predict how much storage is needed
      Persistent storage for your instances
      Scalable – consistent performance regardless of amount of data
      Replication of data
      REST HTTP / StorageClient libraries
      Why a new storage model?
      What’s wrong with the filesystem?
      When would I need a blob?
      What skills do I need to use blobs?
    • 16. Blob Storage Concepts

    • 17. Blob Demo
    • 18. Things to ponder on..
      Standard REST PUT/GET Interface
      http://<Account>.blob.core.windows.net/<Container>/<BlobName>
      StorageClient Library available
      Metadata can be associated per blob – 8K max
      Watch your wallet
      $0.15 per GB stored per month
      $0.01 per 10,000 storage transactions
      Windows Azure Drive… the C: solution (using VHDs)
    • 19. Scenarios for using Queues
    • 20. Queue Demo

    • 22. Summary Of Windows Azure Queues
      Provide reliable message delivery
      Allows Messages to be retrieved and processed at least once
      No limit on number of messages stored in a Queue
      Message size is <=8KB
    • 23. Tables
      First a little story about traffic signals…
      Versus traditional databases
      Denormalized data
      No schema – just name-value pairs
      No distributed transactions
      Black box – no settings
      Row size limits – 1MB
      Easy analogy = Excel sheet
    • 24. Table Demo
    • 25. Table Partitioning
      • To increase performance
      • 26. Data resilience
      • 27. Cheap
      Fastest to slowest query
      Unique partition key
      Partition key + row key
      Partition key
      No partition key/row
    • 28. So do I need SQL Azure?
      Windows Azure Tables
      Denormalized data
      No schema – just name-value pairs
      No distributed transactions
      Black box – no settings
      Row size limits – 1MB
      SQL Azure
      Invert everything (pretty much) on the left, plus…
      Easier migration – MySQL/SQL Server -> SQL Azure, etc
      Has limits
      10, 20, 30 – 50GB
      What if I need more than that???

    • 30. Identity Management using AppFabric ACS
      Recap..
      Scenarios
      You don’t want to manage passwords (how is that possible?)
      You don’t want to drastically change your existing code to handle logic for credentials
      You have an existing Identity Store (Active Directory)
      You want users to authenticate using several existing Identity Stores such as Live ID, Google, etc
      Claims-based identity to the rescue! (share analogy) – portal.appfabriclabs.com
