    • 19. An existing application
    • 20. Time Tracker
      Originated from the ASP.NET starter kithttp://www.asp.net/downloads/starter-kits/time-tracker
      Small modifications:
      List of projects from internal billing system
      Time registration can have an attachment
    • 21. TimeTracker – On-premise
    • 22. Time Tracker
      There are some problems with it...
      Running on 2 web servers that are > 2 years old, nearing EOL
      Looking to buy new hardware
      Looking to deploy the application in a cloud
      Spikes near the end of each month, reducing performance
      Looking to buy additional hardware
      Looking to deploy the application in the cloud
      They do have this “seamless scaling” thing, right?
    • 23. Workload Patterns Optimal for Cloud
      “Growing Fast“
      “On and Off “
      Inactivity
      Period
      Compute
      Compute
      Average Usage
      Usage
      Average
      Time
      Time
      On & off workloads (e.g. batch job)
      Over provisioned capacity is wasted
      Time to market can be cumbersome
      Successful services needs to grow/scale
      Keeping up w/ growth is big IT challenge
      Complex lead time for deployment
      “Unpredictable Bursting“
      “Predictable Bursting“
      Compute
      Compute
      Average Usage
      Average Usage
      Time
      Time
      Unexpected/unplanned peak in demand
      Sudden spike impacts performance
      Can’t over provision for extreme cases
      Services with micro seasonality trends
      Peaks due to periodic increased demand
      IT complexity and wasted capacity
    • 24. Challenges
      Security?
      Forms based
      Claims based (AppFabric access control service)
      Availability & scalability out-of-the-box
      Still keep session state in mind
      Specify “upgrade domains”
      Logging & tracing
      System.Diagnostics.Trace
      Performance counters
      All stored on blob storage, not real-time!
      Operating system
      Windows Azure Cloud OS 1.0 – 1.1 – x.x
      See MSDN for patches and hotfixes in each OS version
      New cost model
      Pay-per-use
      Allow for scale-up and scale-down
    • 25. Moving an application to the cloud
