Practical Azure #11: Worker Roles

Web Roles and Worker Roles, they’re the yin and yang of high performing Windows Azure applications. I covered Windows Azure Web Roles in the last session of Practical Azure, and now it’s time to dive into its workhorse sibling: Worker Roles.

Whereas Web Roles are the public face of your application and bask in all the attention from the user, it’s the Worker Role that does the less glamorous heavy-lifting by carrying out all the background processing and managing database and data storage interaction.

Take a closer look at the synergy between the two roles in my latest segment of Practical Azure on MSDN DevRadio.
