Public clouds platforms are rapidly growing and many businesses move partially or fully their IT infrastructure to the cloud. The big players like Microsoft, Google, Oracle and Amazon operate their own public cloud platforms while the smaller players provide cloud services and PaaS platforms and on top of the larger. What about the .NET developers and the cloud?
In this talk the speaker Svetlin Nakov introduces the public .NET clouds and compares the leading .NET PaaS clouds: Windows Azure, AppHarbor, Uhuru and AWS Elastic Beanstalk for .NET. The .NET public clouds are compared in terms of architecture, programming model, pricing, development stack, available services, deployment model and tools for administration and monitoring. A live demo shows how to deploy and run a typical .NET application (based on ASP.NET MVC and MS SQL Server) in AppHarbor and Uhuru.
