ASP.NET App Suspend is a feature of Windows Server 2012 R2 and the .NET Framework 4.5.1 that brings a mobile app “tombstoning”-style feature to ASP.NET Web sites. App Suspend enables developers to use shared hosting services with the experience of dedicated hosting, by making much better use of existing server hardware. In this video, we’ll show you how to configure Internet Information Server (IIS) to enable the ASP.NET App Suspend feature for a site and demonstrate the before-and-after results. After viewing this video, you’ll see why App Suspend is a big step forward in the ASP.NET application user experience.
This session is all about making the switch from programmatic infrastructure deployment ("Dear Azure, here's a list of everything I want you do, in excruciating detail"), to declarative end-state deployment ("Dear Azure, here's what I want it to look like - go, make it happen"). Azure Resource Manager enables us to define what we want our infrastructure end-state to look like using template-driven deployment. In this session we will drill deep into Azure Resource Manager and templates, and deploy live solutions.
