Microsoft’s Cloud Computing platform Windows Azure is nearing it’s debut as it will be launching publicly in January. If you would like to get a head start head on over to the Windows Azure Getting Started page.
My community group Guelph Coffee and Code [coming soon: www.guelphcoffeeandcode.org] was invited to test out the Windows Azure Platform. Our mission is to launch 20 applications into the cloud by the end of November. I have launched 2 applications thus far, the first was the my to do application from the Windows Azure Platform Training Kit, next I headed off to Code Plex and found a Windows Azure Sudoku Application [See my deployment here].
The Sudoku application Leverages ASP.NET, Silverlight, and WCF Web Services. During the course of the video below, I will run you through publishing the application and deploying it into the cloud. The Sudoku application doesn’t require a Storage Service, but I went through the steps of setting one up just incase it would be helpful in your deployments.
I hope you enjoy the video, and enjoy your experiences floating in the cloud.
