  • To build an application or solution in a legacy world, you have to think about network, OS, storage, and scale. But they have little to do with what you really want to build, an application. But what if there were a different way.
  • This is the idea behind Cloud Computing, and in this case the Windows Azure platform, which allows you to run at scale, on the internet. In short, if you have to pay upfront for peak capacity, money will be wasted. Think of Cloud Computing and Windows Azure more like electricity – a utility. You pay only for what you need, and only when you turn it on. You can stop worrying about where the peak is, stop paying up front, and save a lot of money
  • Key point : The Windows Azure Platform is a set of cloud computing services that can be used separately or together. Windows Azure is hosted in Microsoft data centers around the world. Windows Azure provides compute power, storage, and automated service management, as well as easy connectivity to other applications and access control to provide secure authorization and authentication of access to cloud resources. Also hosted in the Windows Azure platform is Microsoft SQL Azure, providing relational database services and automated management of relational service. SQL Azure can help reduce costs by integrating with existing toolsets and providing symmetry with on-premises and cloud databases. Windows Azure AppFabric helps developers connect applications and services in the cloud or on-premises. This includes applications running on Windows Azure, Windows Server and a number of other platforms including Java, Ruby, PHP and others. Windows Azure AppFabric provides a Service Bus for connectivity across network and organizational boundaries, and Access Control for federated authorization as a service. Microsoft © 2010
  • This is a recap of deployment Code is compiled, then packaged into a single file. This is the service package. This, along with the configuration/service model – are deployed via the web portal.

A few Azure Compute Scenarios Usage Compute Time Average Inactivity Period “On and Off “ • On & off workloads (e.g. batch job) • Over provisioned capacity is wasted • Time to market can be cumbersome Compute Time “Unpredictable Bursting“ Average Usage • Unexpected/unplanned peak in demand • Sudden spike impacts performance • Can’t over provision for extreme cases Average Usage Compute Time “Growing Fast“ • Successful services needs to grow/scale • Keeping up w/ growth is big IT challenge • Complex lead time for deployment Compute Time Average Usage “Predictable Bursting“ • Services with micro seasonality trends • Peaks due to periodic increased demand • IT complexity and wasted capacity #CSwebinar
