Amazon Web Services: Migrating your .NET Enterprise Application

By: Rob Linton

Overview of this book

Amazon Web Services is an Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) platform in the Cloud, which businesses can take advantage of as their needs demand. The Amazon Cloud provides the enterprise with the flexibility to choose whichever solution is required to solve specific problems, ultimately reducing costs by only paying for what you use. While enterprises understand moving their applications among infrastructure they own and manage, the differences in Amazon's infrastructure bring up specific business, legal, technical, and regulatory issues to get to grips with. This step-by-step guide to moving your Enterprise .NET application to Amazon covers not only the concept, technical design, and strategy, but also enlightens readers about the business strategy and in-depth implementation details involved in moving an application to Amazon. You'll discover how to map your requirements against the Amazon Cloud, as well as secure and enhance your application with AWS. This book helps readers achieve their goal of migrating a .NET Enterprise Application to the AWS cloud. It guides you through the process one step at a time with a sample enterprise application migration. After comparing the existing application with the newly migrated version, it then moves on to explain how to make the hosted application better. It covers how to leverage some of the scalability and redundancy built into the Cloud, and along the way you'll learn about all of the major AWS products like EC2, S3, and EBS.

About the Reviewers


In this chapter, we covered in detail how to create both Microsoft SQL Server and Oracle instances on AWS. We looked at how we connect to these instances and how to import data into each of our instances once they were created. We looked at licensing and pricing for both Oracle and SQL Server, and looked at how they were both structured from the AWS cloud perspective.

We also covered Amazon RDS and Amazon SimpleDB, and also gave examples on how to both connect and to import data into these services.

In the next chapter, we bring it all together for our sample application and look at how we configure all of the components and deploy our data and code. We will look at how we manage our application and operationally support it with day-to-day tasks such as performance monitoring and backup of our data.
