Windows Azure Architecture for massive scalable Websites & Porting of a Startpage Portal

The Windows Azure Platform provides SQL based and Windows Azure based Storage Services. The Windows Azure based Storage Services are useful in scenarios where you need massive scalability e.g. like for a start-page ala pageflakes or google/IG.

I had the chance to do a series for How Do I Videos that show how to build a massively scalable website based on azure.

The first Video shows how to build an azure app: http://www.microsoft.com/germany/msdn/solve/codeclips/library.aspx?id=msdn_de_31344 [German]

The second Video shows how to store binary data in Windows Azure Storage

The third Video shows how to store Entites in Windows Azure Table Storage using ADO.NET Data Services

Then finally I show how to migrate the Startpage Portal www.dropthings.com to Windows Azure and Windows Azure Table Storage
