Web Application Migration to Windows Azure From the Ground Up


There you are looking up at all of these cloud applications wondering “Just how am I going to get there”. In this session we will look at the key considerations around the process of migrating your production web application with a SQL Server back end to the Windows Azure platform. We will then walk through a series of identified steps that will allow you to migrate a piece of the application at a time all while continuing to serve up pages. You will walk away from this session with the real world tools necessary to start migrating your own applications.

September 7, 2011 Leave a comment

There has been a change of plans for the next Central Ohio Cloud Computing User Group meeting.  Instead of the planned lightning talks, we are pleased to welcome Monish Nagisetty to talk with us about extending the reach of BizTalk 2010, both on-premises and in the cloud.

The September 2011 meeting will be held on Monday, September 12h from 6pm – 8pm at TechColumbus.  Please continue to tell your friends about COCCUG!  They can find us on Twitter at and also at  Please RSVP for meetings via

Topic: Extending the Reach of BizTalk 2010

Abstract : Cloud computing is here to stay. Organizations can realize reduced cost and management by moving their applications to the cloud; however, this approach requires the ability to maintain a bridge between existing on-premise assets and those in the cloud. BizTalk Server 2010 introduces a new feature called “AppFabric Connect”, which enables organizations to leverage existing legacy investments on-premise while integrating with their next generation of applications in the cloud. BizTalk 2010 brings these capabilities to Windows Server AppFabric and Windows Azure AppFabric. In Windows Server AppFabric, this capability enables developers to leverage the power of the BizTalk LOB Adapters and the BizTalk Mapper from inside Windows Workflow applications. In Windows Azure AppFabric, it enables you to expose your BizTalk artifacts as service endpoints in the cloud. In this presentation, you will see how you can leverage your existing .NET investments to extend the reach of BizTalk 2010 both on-premise and in the cloud.

Speaker: Monish Nagisetty is a Practice Director for Neudesic within their Connected Systems practice. He is also a member of the Microsoft Virtual Technical Solution Professional (V-TSP) program where he serves as an extension of the Microsoft field team. He spends a majority of his time helping clients solve enterprise integration problems on the Microsoft Application Integration Platform using technologies like BizTalk, AppFabric, Azure, and Host Integration Server.
