New Microsoft Whitepaper on Extending WCF Apps for Windows Azure

imageI’m pleased to share that Microsoft has just published my whitepaper “Developing and Extending Apps for Windows Azure with Visual Studio”: http://www.microsoft.com/en-imageus/cloud/developer/resource.aspx?resourceId=developing-and-extending-apps

In this whitepaper, I summarize the significance of cloud computing today and disambiguate the differences between Software as a Service (SaaS), Platform and a Service (PaaS) and Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) before providing you with an introduction to Windows Azure.image

I then show you how to extend an existing WCF 4.0 application service for deployment to Windows Azure with Visual Studio by adding a Windows Azure Project and associating it with a web role. Then I demonstrate how simple Visual Studio 2010 makes testing a cloud application locally before packaging it for deployment to Windows Azure and walk you through the complete Windows Azure Management Portal experience.

If you are evaluating Windows Azure, and want to understand what the developmentimage, deployment and management lifecycle looks like with Visual Studio 2010, then this is the whitepaper for you!

Special thanks to my editor, Erik Ruthruff at A23 Consulting and the great folks at EPS for your team work and stellar collaboration.
