New Azure cloud portal

Hi everybody,

since a long time from my last post (some post will be delivered soon), Microsoft has delivered a new portal design.

This design is more graphic and more user friendly. So it’s not for developer :P. I like this design but I think it’s not very usefull. It refer to windows 8 style with tiling. When you browse a section it develop it on the right side :

dashboard

 

When you select an artifact, it develop it on the right side :

sql view

Then when you select a database :

sql details

this version is a preview I don’t know when they want to pass it as  standart.

Azure design Pattern

Microsoft has delivered an ebook around cloud design pattern

http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dn568099.aspx

You can download it as pdf, epub or mobi

This book contains twenty-four design patterns and ten related guidance topics, this guide articulates the benefit of applying patterns by showing how each piece can fit into the big picture of cloud application architectures. It also discusses the benefits and considerations for each pattern. Most of the patterns have code samples or snippets that show how to implement the patterns using the features of Windows Azure. However the majority of topics described in this guide are equally relevant to all kinds of distributed systems, whether hosted on Windows Azure or on other cloud platforms.
