Windows Azure Jump Start (11): Scalability, Caching & Elasticity, Part 1
Building Cloud Applications with the Windows Azure Platform
This is Part 1 of a two-part section and helps learners understand how to ensure appropriate scalability, caching and elasticity into their applications using the Windows Azure Platform. Achieving linear scale, scaling up vs. scaling out, and choosing VM sizes are covered.
The Windows Azure Jump Start video series is for all architects and developers interested in designing, developing and delivering cloud-based applications leveraging the Windows Azure Platform. The overall target of this course is to help development teams make the right decisions with regard to cloud technology, the Azure environment and application lifecycle, Storage options, Diagnostics, Security and Scalability. The course is based on the Windows Azure Platform Training Course and taught by Microsoft Press authors, Manu Cohen-Yashar and David S. Platt.
