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


No book is the product of just the author – he just happens to be the one with his name on the cover.

A number of people contributed to the success of this book, and it would take more space than I have to thank each one individually.

A special shout out goes to Stephanie Moss, the Acquisition Editor at Packt, and Ben Cherian, who is the reason that this book exists.

Thank you Stephanie for believing in me and believing in my ability to produce this book, your feedback has been wonderful.

Thank you Ben, for the initial work in setting up the outline for this book, your work was invaluable.

I would also like to thank Peter, my twin brother and CEO of Systalk, for allowing the space to make this book happen. A book project of this size was inevitably going to require some flexibility in my day job, and I appreciate the flexibility he gave me to make this happen.

(I promise I'll bill more hours this year round Pete).

Also thank you to Kartikey Pandey, my development editor, and Leena Purkait, my project coordinator at Packt, you are both professional to the core.

Finally, I would like to thank the team behind Amazon Web Services, who are mostly anonymous; you are all doing a great job, keep it up.
