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.

We have spent quite a bit of time so far looking at all of the options that AWS offers; now, in this chapter, we will look in detail at the steps required to deploy our sample application Waaah (Widgets are always available here).

Just to recap: Waaah is a Microsoft Model View Controller (MVC) 3.0 application, developed with .Net 4.0 and Visual Web Developer 2010 Express. It is a basic web application that allows login/logoff, and subscribe/unsubscribe to a list of services supplied by the Widget Company. The database is a SQL Server database, and the application relies on Forms Security for authentication. Our application comprises three parts, the web application itself, which runs on the...
