Azure deep dive

Explore the Benefits of Windows Azure Data
Storage & Compute Services


Join Jeffrey Richter for a FREE full day of in-depth, live learning as he teaches architects & developers how to leverage Azure’s data storage and compute services.

The day will start off with a whirlwind tour of the various independent services that make up the Windows Azure Service Platform consumable from both cloud and on-premise services. Then we will discuss Azure’s Data Storage services concentrating on blobs (for video, music, text, documents, etc.), tables (for non-relational data), and queues (for durable messaging between on-premise & cloud-based services). The day will continue with a focus on Azure’s compute services which allow you to deploy your own applications into Microsoft’s data centers. Finally, we’ll discuss deployment, configuration, management, tools, roles & how your roles interact with the Azure fabric controller.

Sessions include:


Introduction to the Windows Azure Service Platform
Platform as a Service versus Platform as a service, stateful servers versus stateless servers, the independent Azure services


Azure Blobs
Containers, conditional operations, block & page blobs, continuation tokens, snapshots, leases, shared access signatures, simulating directory hierarchies, custom domain names, content delivery service, & retry policies


Azure Tables
Properties, partitioning, serializing entities, updating entities, optimistic concurrency


Azure Queues
Scenarios, robust message processing & idempotency, handling poison messages


Azure Compute Services
Deployment, configuration, tools, roles & interaction with the Azure fabric controller, architecting services for Azure
