Building Hybrid Applications in the Cloud on Windows Azure

Free eBook: Building Hybrid Applications in the Cloud on Windows Azure

“Building Hybrid Applications in the Cloud on Windows Azure” is the 3rd release of Windows Azure Guidance from Microsoft. This guide provides in-depth guidance on how to architect and build hybrid solutions on and with the Windows Azure platform.


This guide focuses on the common issues you will encounter when building applications that run partly in the cloud and partly on-premises, or when you decide to migrate some or all elements of an existing on-premises application to the cloud. It focuses on using Windows Azure as the host environment, and shows how you can take advantage of the many features of this platform, together with SQL Azure, to simplify and speed the development of these kinds of applications.

This guide is intended for architects, developers, and information technology (IT) professionals who design, build, or operate applications and services that run on or interact with the cloud. Although applications do not need to be based on the Microsoft® Windows® operating system to operate in Windows Azure, this book is written for people who work with Windows-based systems. You should be familiar with the Microsoft .NET Framework, the Microsoft Visual Studio® development system, ASP.NET MVC, and the Microsoft Visual C#® development language.
