Windows Azure Real World Guidance Article on MSDN

Slalom Consultant Joel Forman specializes in cloud computing and the Windows Azure Platform.

I am pleased to announce that fellow Slalom colleague Stephen Roger and I recently had an article we wrote published on MSDN. Microsoft supports a collection of articles on MSDN called Real World Windows Azure Guidance, where people from the technology community can share real experiences on using the Windows Azure platform.

Our article, entitled Considerations When Choosing a Web Role Instance Size: How small should I go?, attempts to look at the topic of choosing a virtual machine size for your web applications when starting on Windows Azure from a cost and scalability angle. In the article we provide guidance on sizing decisions for web roles by:

  • Comparing performance of a web application under load for different instance sizes;
  • Factoring in a hypothetical usage pattern to understand scaling implications for instance sizes; and
  • Evaluating cost when scaling for different instance sizes.

Please check out the article when you get a chance!
