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.

So, just to recap, in this chapter, we installed our sample application Waaah on AWS. We implemented a load-balanced web server frontend, with each web server connecting to a dedicated application server and to a mirrored database server.

Our sample application was written in Visual Studio 2010 using ASP.NET MVC and the location for the source code for this application as well as instructions on downloading and installing the Microsoft Web Development tools were covered.

At the end of this chapter, we connected to the public address of the AWS load balancer in front of our application and watched it work!

In the next chapter, we will be covering Amazon Simple Queue Service (SQS) and Amazon Simple Notification Service (SNS). We will look at how these technologies can be used in enterprise applications as well as how these services can improve our sample application, Waaah.
