This session will focus on what the Microsoft modern principles are, and the steps needed to evolve a common on-premise system architecture to something that is more modern. We will discuss the tenants of modern architecture and why they are important. The speaker will also walk through changes that can be made to update a sample application to a more modern style. Cost factors will be discussed, including the manual work needed, testing, and risks of change.
SQL Server connections in cloud scenarios – including with Windows Azure SQL Database – have an inherent degree of unreliability when compared to local SQL Server client/server connections. These challenges to reliability derive from several factors, including inconsistent Internet connectivity, machines in a cluster failing over and databases switching partitions. In this video, you’ll see how to use the new ADO.NET Connection Resiliency feature to add an extra level of resiliency and address these cloud-specific database connection considerations.
