Moving Applications to Windows Azure–A Methodology

Earlier this week at the NYC/NJ Windows Azure User Group meeting I presented: Moving Applications to Windows Azure, a live version based on my To Cloud or Not To Cloud blog post series. This was a joint meeting of the NYC/NJ Windows Azure User Group, The New York Enterprise Windows User Group and several other local user groups.

We had a record turnout at the meeting where we covered :

  • Finding an application that is appropriate to move to Windows Azure
  • Deciding how to move it using Software as a Service, Platform as a Service or Infrastructure as a Service
  • What to do about new and legacy applications

We also discussed the decision process for guiding an evaluation and wrapped up by discussing several potential showstoppers and how to mitigate them.

The slides from this meeting are located here. They compliment Parts 1 and 2 of the blog post series together with a hint of a coming follow on post covering Cloud Showstoppers and their Mitigations. Smile

Stay tuned.
