Containers, unless you haven't heard, are a big thing. Docker, who have a strategic partnership with Microsoft, makes it incredibly easy to create, deploy and run applications using containers. Cassandra, a distributed and highly scalable NoSQL database, is well suited for containers. DataStax provide enterprise grade Cassandra as a platform and Instaclustr provide fully managed Cassandra-as-a-Service on Azure. In this session you'll gain an overview of containers and Docker, Microsoft's support of open orchestration APIs and the integration of Docker Hub and Azure. We'll discuss the merits and benefits of containers and how you can provision Docker on Azure. Finally, we will discuss how Instaclustr have built an offering on Azure using Docker and modern Linux technologies including systemd and journald.
This session will introduce new features and roadmap for Visual Studio developers who want to deploy their Web, Mobile, and REST API applications to Azure App Service. We'll begin with the new provisioning experience and improved UI. We'll discuss the agility we've been able to achieve for one-off tooling experiences like the ASP.NET WebHooks tools and the API Management ingest tooling, built atop the Visual Studio Connected Service framework. We'll take a look at how Azure services like Redis Caching, Document DB, and Azure Storage can be used for infinite storage and performance capabilities. We'll take a look at the latest advances to Azure App Service like integrated CORS support and Swagger-based API Client generation, and use WebJobs to provide back-end processing power to your ASP.NET apps running in Azure.
Windows Azure Web Sites provide a simple and economical means of deploying your Web applications to Windows Azure, with the ability to upgrade to Azure Cloud Services when and if you’re ready. In this video, we will walk through how to get started building and hosting Windows Azure Web Sites with Visual Studio 2013.
