Microsoft and Wintellect present a free day of Windows Azure training


Explore the Benefits of Windows Azure Data Storage and 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
