Recently I was invited to speak at TechEd 2012 Australia on my experience with building an Internet-scale service on Windows Azure. Rather than focus on the coding aspects which are documented quite comprehensively on MSDN, I focused on the operational aspects that are crucial to running a reliable service.
I attended Grant’s talk at Tech.Ed Australia, and found it hugely interesting. If you’re looking at a product or service you might want to move from on-premises to hosting – whether Azure or another cloud provider – this talk helps identify some of the risks, mindset shifts, and best practices involved with that type of move. I enjoyed it a lot.
Grant’s post is From Server to Service: How Microsoft Moved TFS to Windows Azure .
