Design an efficient and reliable Data Access Layer for Azure-based solutions
The goal of modernizing the data access layer that have to work transparently with SQL Azure and SQL Server on premises is
critical to achieve both performance and reliability, without giving up manageability and developer productivity. In this session we'll
talk about real world scenarios considering typical application patterns and technologies like ADO.NET and Entity Framework, and
solving issues like connection reliability, chattiness and other performance related problems.
Design for operations, solution monitoring and troubleshooting
Operating a cloud-based application at web scale is one of the most challenging transitions that customers and cloud service
vendors have to implement when moving from on-premises to the cloud. In this sessions we describe how to orchestrate a new or
existing solution, and create a Telemetry system that will help operations to keep things up and running.
Building hybrid solution with the Service Bus
The Service Bus is an Internet-scale Service Bus that offers secure, scalable and highly available connectivity and messaging
capabilities. The Service Bus is part of Windows Azure and is designed to provide connectivity, queuing, and routing capabilities
not only for the cloud applications but also for on-premises applications. In November 2012, the Service Bus for Windows Server
was released. During this session we'll see how you can take advantage of both the cloud and on-premises version of the Service
Bus to build a new class of hybrid solutions to connect heterogeneous systems that live in different application domains and data
centers, both in the cloud and on-premises.
