When designing cloud applications, you should take into account the fact that a failure or malfunction of any component of the system is possible. This template is called Designing for Failure. This design approach helps minimize the negative consequences of failure of any component of the internal or external system. Sometimes, it is not so simple to use the Designing for Failure template, but the Azure platform greatly facilitates this task due to the fact that some of the functions are implemented by cloud services—Azure Web Sites, Traffic Manager, CDN, RA—Geo Redundant Storage. During this session, we shall talk about how to use the functionality provided by Azure to ensure the accessibility of a website, even in the event of failure of one of the regions of the platform.
В докладе будет рассказано о ключевых особенностях, методике и основных сценариях успешного внедрения комплекса инструментов Microsoft ALM, на примере целого ряда выполненных проектов компании SoftServe в тесном сотрудничестве с Microsoft. Также будут рассмотрены решения, которые были разработаны для повышения эффективности использования платформы. Дополнительно, наши эксперты, имеющие огромный опыт внедрения Microsoft ALM, отдельно рассмотрят важный вопрос о методах обоснования целесообразности внедрения новой платформы Microsoft ALM, ожидаемых затратах и выгодах от внедрения.
In April at Build 2014, Microsoft unveiled universal Windows apps, a new approach that enables developers to maximize their ability to deliver outstanding application experiences across Windows PCs, laptops, tablets, and Windows Phones. This means it's now easier than ever to create apps that share most of their code. Code can be shared using the new shared app templates, as well as by creating Portable class libraries. This session will walk through the development of a shared app and will discuss where it still makes sense to implement platform specific features.
Regardless of whether you’re building on a private infrastructure, in a hybrid environment, or deploying to a public cloud, there are optimizations you can make in storage and availability that will improve the manageability and performance of your application and environment. Join this session to hear more about the end-to-end scale, performance, and availability improvements coming with Windows Server. We dive into deploying and managing storage using SMB shares, show the improved experience in everyday storage management such as deploying patches to the cloud, and share how to leverage faster live migration when responding to new load demands. Starting with Windows Server 2012, Microsoft offered a complete storage stack from the hardware up, leveraging commodity JBODs surfaced as Virtual Disks via Storage Spaces, hosted by Scale-Out File Server nodes and servicing client requests via SMB 3.0. Now, with major features added in Windows Server 2012 R2 (e.g., Storage Tiering and SMB Redirection), the story gets even better! As a critical piece in the Modern Datacenter (i.e., a Software-Defined Datacenter), SDS plays a crucial role in improving utilization and increasing cost efficiency, scalability, and elasticity. This session empowers you to architect, implement, and monitor this key capability. Come learn how to design, deploy, configure, and automate a storage solution based completely on Windows technologies, as well as how to troubleshoot and manage via the in-box stack and Microsoft System Center. Live demos galore!
