This book offers comprehensive instructions on how to design and create hybrid solutions using the Windows Azure platform.
This book focuses on the main problems you'll run into if you decide to transfer parts or all of an existing on-premises application to the cloud or design apps that run partially in the cloud and partially on-premises. It emphasizes using Windows Azure as the host environment and demonstrates how you can leverage SQL Azure and all of this platform's features to streamline and accelerate the development of these kinds of apps.
This book is meant for architects, developers, and information technology (IT) professionals that create, maintain, or manage cloud-based software and services. This book is intended for readers who work with Windows-based systems even if apps based on the Microsoft Windows operating system are not required to operate in Windows Azure. The Microsoft.NET Framework, the Microsoft Visual Studio environment, ASP.NET MVC, and the Microsoft Visual C# programming language should all be familiar to you.
