Where the heck do I host my … .NET app?

August 16, 2013


In this short series of posts, I’m looking at the various options for hosting different types of applications. I first looked at Node.js and its diverse ecosystem of providers, and now I’m looking at where to host your .NET application. Regardless of whether you think .NET is passé or not, the reality is that there […]

Where the heck do I host my … Node.js app?

July 29, 2013


It’s a great time to be a developer. Also a confusing time. We are at a point where there are dozens of legit places that forward-thinking developers can run their apps in the cloud. I’ll be taking a look at a few different types of applications in a brief series of “where the heck do […]

Deploying a Cloud Foundry v2 Application to New Pivotal Cloud Environment

In my latest Pluralsight video training course – Patterns of Cloud Integration – I addressed application and data integration scenarios that involve cloud endpoints. In the “shared database” module of the course, I discussed integration options where parties relied on a common (cloud) data repository. One of my solutions was inspired by Amazon CTO Werner […]

Using Active Directory Federation Services to Authenticate / Authorize Node.js Apps in Windows Azure
