Windows Azure Architecture Guide Part 1 - Moving Applications to the Cloud

Windows Azure Architecture Guide Part 1 - Moving Applications to the Cloud

For an introduction to developing cloud-based services on Windows Azure, check out the new Windows Azure Architecture Guide, Part 1 which covers a migration walk-through for moving existing applications to the cloud.

This interactive guide is the first volume in a planned series about the Windows Azure platform that will cover both "brownfield" and "greenfield" scenarios - migrating existing apps or writing new apps for running on the Azure cloud platform.

The Windows Azure Architecture Guide, Part 1 walks you through the migration of a traditionally developed and hosted service to a Windows Azure hosted service. From architecture to best practices and design concepts, the guide outlines exactly how the application was migrated to Windows Azure.

Use the guide as a reference for key Windows Azure architecture concepts such as:

  • Authentication and authorization
  • Data storage and access
  • Session management
  • Deployment
  • Development life cycle
  • Cost analysis
