Cloud computing is a term that has risen to the top of application development discussions in a very short period of time. Amazon, Google, and Microsoft (among many others), all offer cloud-computing services and are not shy about touting its benefits. If you believe the marketing hype, cloud computing ranks somewhere between revolutionary and the second coming of your favorite prophet. But what exactly is cloud computing, and how does it play into the daily lives of enterprise developers?
In this article, by Richard J. Dudley & Nathan A. Duchene, authors of Microsoft Azure: Enterprise Application Development, let's try and find some answers to the above questions.Read Introduction to Cloud Computing with Microsoft Azure in full
Microsoft App-V represents the most dynamic platform for virtualized applications, from which you can scale up application deployment by delivering an efficient design. Dynamic Suite Composition (DSC) represents one of the most important features when talking about agile deployments. DSC provides the ability to have a new layer of interoperability, virtualized applications dependencies, where one App-V package depends on and interacts with another App-V package.
Microsoft provides the Dynamic Suite Composition tool with which you can easily establish the necessary communication channels between applications. In this article by Augusto Alvarez, author of Getting Started with Microsoft Application Virtualization 4.6, you will look at:
- Understanding how Dynamic Suite Composition works
- Practical examples of preparing and using DSC

Even though most of the initial and common errors are related to the Management Server, an incorrect deployment of the rest of the components could result in hours of troubleshooting effort. After reviewing and understanding the components and models available for implementation, a good point to remember is that often you can combine options to fulfill your business requirements.
Also, with automatic deployments you get the chance to optimize the time you are investing in mechanical procedures and also deliver outstanding provisioning times. In this article by Augusto Alvarez, author of Getting Started with Microsoft Application Virtualization 4.6, you will cover:
- Installing the App-V Sequencer
- Installing and configuring the App-V Desktop Client
- Installing the App-V Streaming Server
The successful adoption of any software depends on the availability of a reliable and tested toolset. SQL Azure's success would also depend on this key requirement. Microsoft has largely contributed to the tools that can be leveraged working with SQL Azure, but a few third-party vendors and others have also created tools for SQL Azure.
In this article by Jayaram Krishnaswamy, author of Microsoft SQL Azure Enterprise Application Development, we will discuss the Microsoft Tools.Read Microsoft SQL Azure Tools in full
This article, by Richard J. Dudley & Nathan A. Duchene, authors of Microsoft Azure: Enterprise Application Development, is about the Blob Storage service and how to interact with blobs using either a .NET client library or REST services.
In movie mythology, blobs are ever-growing creatures that consume everything in their path. In Azure, blobs just seem to be the same. A blob, or binary large object, is an Azure storage mechanism with both streaming and random read/write capabilities. Blob Storage is accessed via a .NET client library or a rich REST API, and libraries for a number of languages, including Ruby and PHP, are available. With the addition of the Windows Azure Content Delivery Network, blobs have become a very functional and powerful storage option.Read Microsoft Azure Blob Storage in full
