It's possible to build, deploy and manage applications across global networks stress-free, provided that you have assurance that your cloud platform is performing optimally. Achieving that assurance is easier and more cost effective than you would expect with Foglight for Windows Azure Applications.
This quick-to-deploy diagnostic and monitoring solution helps assure the performance and availability of applications built on the Windows Azure platform. Foglight for Windows Azure Applications ensures you have real time data on the health of the application to tie back to the end-user experience.
Windows Azure SQL Database is a managed version of Microsoft SQL Server 2012, hosted by Microsoft in a Windows Azure datacenter. SQL Database is a core feature of the Windows Azure Platform.
SQL Database is a multi-tenanted system in which many database instances are hosted in a single SQL Server instance running on a physical server or node. Therefore, it has different performance characteristics than pure SQL Server. In particular, high data scalability and high performance are achieved by horizontally scaling the data into multiple instances or shards. To provide high availability and satisfy demanding SLAs, each SQL Database instance is stored as one primary replica and two secondary replicas. When a node fails, the primary and secondary copies it hosts are re-created on other nodes. SQL Database uses a quorum commit in which a commit is deemed successful as soon as the primary and one of the two secondary replicas have completed the commit.
This whitepaper describes the top ten issues that arise when deploying to SQL Database and explains how to mitigate these issues.Read Paper >>
Azure Best Practices - How to Successfully Architect Windows-Azure based Apps for the Cloud
Wednesday, March 13, 2013 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM EDT
Discover how you can successfully architect Windows Azure-based applications to avoid and mitigate performance and reliability issues with our live webinar. During this webinar, we will examine why cloud-based applications must be architected differently from that of traditional applications, and break down key architectural patterns that truly unlock cloud benefits.
Cost Manager for Azure is a billing and usage management solution that analyzes your account to help you identify waste. Cost Manager drills into subscription data to provide a detailed view of resource utilization that can be interpreted to show exactly where you are spending money in the cloud. It plugs into your account and allows you to slice and dice billing detail within the application for customized reporting, project mapping, and allows you to set parameters to effectively manage resources and utilization.
