February 2011 | Enterprise, Microsoft

Packt is pleased to announce its new book titled “ Microsoft Azure Enterprise Application Development ” aimed at helping developers build scalable enterprise applications using Microsoft Azure.Written by Richard J. Dudley and Nathan Duchene this book is the perfect fast-paced case study for developers and architects wanting to enhance core business processes.

Windows Azure is a cloud services operating system that serves as the development, service hosting and service management environment for the Windows Azure platform. Windows Azure provides developers with on-demand compute and storage to host, scale, and manage web applications on the internet through Microsoft® datacenters.Windows Azure is a flexible platform that supports multiple languages and integrates with the existing on-premises environment.

Microsoft Azure Enterprise Application Development starts off with an overview of cloud computing in general, followed by an overview of Microsoft's Azure platform, and covers Windows Azure, SQL Azure, and AppFabric, discussing them with the help of a case-study. The book then guides readers through setting up the tools needed for Azure development by discussing topics such as transferring data from an on-premises database to SQL Azure using SSIS, securing an application using AppFabric access control, blob and table storage, and asynchronous messaging using Queue Storage. By the end of the book readers will be able to develop a truely elastic application.

Using the book, developers will explore the major features of Azure, examine the differences between Azure development and traditional application development. They will learn to develop web and worker roles along with log application diagnostics and events, and create a WCF service. Finally, they will learn to create a Windows Forms application, integrate it with web services using Visual Studio and make monitoring application performance easier using Azure diagnostics.

Written in the context of building an online portal for the case-study application, this book is ideal for a developer or an architect who wants to build enterprise-level applications with Azure. This book is out now and available from Packt. For more information please visit : https://www.packtpub.com/microsoft-azure-enterprise-application-development/book
