    How Storage Works on Amazon

    by Rob Linton | July 2011 | Enterprise Articles

    Amazon Web Services is an Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) platform in the Cloud, which businesses can take advantage of as their needs demand.

    In this article by Rob Linton, author of Amazon Web Services: Migrate your .NET Enterprise Application to the Amazon Cloud: RAW, we will look at how Amazon manages storage. We will look at the differences between S3 and EBS storage and how to implement both.

    Communicating from Dynamics CRM to BizTalk Server

    by Richard Seroter | July 2011 | Enterprise Articles Microsoft

    One can imagine many scenarios where Dynamics CRM either publishes data to BizTalk Server or queries BizTalk-exposed service endpoints. For instance, when a customer requests a refund for a defective product, the call center agent may record this request in Dynamics CRM. After the phone call is over, Dynamics CRM should send a message to a returns processing system which handles the crediting of a customer's account. In another scenario, BizTalk Server may be the host of a data aggregation service which queries three enterprise systems that store "customer" data and aggregates the responses. Dynamics CRM may want to execute that service when a call center agent views a customer record so that they get a fuller picture of that customer's interactions with the company.

    In this article by Richard Seroter, author of Microsoft BizTalk 2010: Line of Business Systems Integration, we will see how Dynamics CRM sends data to BizTalk Server.
