SQL Azure Compatibility Assessment

19 בינואר 2012

How do you know if your SQL database is compatible with SQL Azure and can be migrated to the cloud? Well there is a long list of well known issues like SQL Agent and SQL CLR that are not supported, but what about those little details that no body wrote about and eventually will stop you from migrating to the cloud? It would be great if someone would tell you if migration is possible before you spend the time on a POC. A new service was launched by the SQL Azure team for this exact reason. It...

Azure Elasticity with Wasabi Application Block

11 בינואר 2012

One of the core capabilities provided by cloud computing is elasticity. It means that it is possible to provision new machines automatically when required and delete redundant instances when possible. Unfortunately Windows Azure did not provide an easy tool-set for implementing elasticity.  It was possible but it was not easy. To do that you would have to use the management API for spinning new instances together with storage REST API which was used to query the service diagnostics info. To fill the void tools such as AzureWatch were developed yet it was weird that Microsoft does not...
