Learn how the Windows Azure Platform can be used as a flexible cloud computing solution. Learn how to avoid upfront investment and usage of expensive infrastructure.

Feb. 1, 2011: Practical Architectural Guidelines in Building Applications on the Windows Azure Platform
In this session we will dive into some more architecture like topics when it comes to using the Windows Azure Platform for building the next generation of cloud computing based solutions. Some of these guidelines, amongst other, handle dynamic usage load and deployment of your application, managing overall health state of your infrastructure, securing your applications using federated best practices, managing the overall lifecycle of your solution and other Windows Azure Platform best practices.
This session shows different scenarios where these guidelines are needed while demonstrating the correct way to implement them with many code samples.
