Serving up content on the Internet is something our web sites do daily. But are we doing this in the fastest way possible? How are users in faraway countries experiencing our apps? Why do we have three webservers serving the same content over and over again? In this session, we'll explore the Windows Azure Content Delivery Network or CDN, a service which makes it easy to serve up blobs, videos and other content from servers close to our users. We'll explore simple file serving as well as some more advanced, dynamic edge caching scenarios.
In this session Michael will talk about what types of cloud services are available and what their functions are. The differences between worker roles and instances of these services will be looked at. How these instances can be effectively scaled up or down depending on business need will also be covered. Role life cycle, service configuration and diagnostics will be discussed as well as different approaches to upgrading and deployment of the services.
