Web developers are seeing huge boosts in their productivity building Web Applications with ASP.NET, with so many huge improvements to Visual Studio focused on the problems web developers solve each day. We've also made some significant improvements in Microsoft Azure for web developers by concentrating on providing the community the best cloud in which to host ASP.NET web apps. Features like Auto-scaling and Traffic Management provide high-performance, internationally-distributed web hosting scenarios. We've made it easier than ever to add background processing by adding Azure WebJobs as an option for web developers who need to add a middle tier. Along with staging and production deployment slots, and a rich SDK to enable service automation - a feature many software-as-a-service apps can use to automate their provisioning and deployment experiences - there's no better place than Microsoft Azure Web Sites to host your ASP.NET apps. Kudu offers Web Sites customers a set of extensions that offer an extensible addition to the Azure Management Portal that has extensions in it from external contributors and Microsoft engineers who contribute to a growing list of functionality each site can exploit. This session will introduce these and other features with Web Sites, and demonstrate how it is the best choice in the cloud for ASP.NET.
The new Microsoft Rights Management services (RMS) enables customers to protect their most sensitive information. Some customers want to put this data in the cloud while retaining control over it, while some may want to keep their data on-premises due to concerns about control over their data. Microsoft RMS can work with both these scenarios, enabling them to deploy Azure RMS to work with online and on-premises servers, and allowing them to retain control over their keys and access to documents. In this session we describe how these scenarios are deployed and demonstrate how to quickly set up Azure RMS, how to enable on-premises and cloud-based SharePoint and Exchange to use the service via the connector, and how to deploy Bring your Own Key solutions to protect your root keys.
