what did we find
What did we find?
  • Authentication – ADFS server against corporate AD in our DC
  • Authorization – ADFS custom claim to make the authorization decision
  • Data Sync – SSIS to push subset of rows and columns to SQL Azure
  • Security/Audit – specific to each organization and industry for data and operations
  • Application Integration – use of ADFS Passive Fed allowed Web SSO model between apps in different locations
  • Operations/Management – cannot use Windows Event Log and SCOM
  • Cost – very little code change to existing application; quick time to deliver
why is this cool
Why is this cool?
  • You already have the skills you need (Visual Studio, SSIS)
  • No infrastructure required! (assuming you already have ADFS)
  • Don’t worry about the plumbing, just build the application
  • Microsoft is providing the tooling and guidance to reduce the barrier to leveraging Azure

lessons learned
Lessons Learned
  • Be prepared to sacrifice hardware and software control in exchange for lower maintenance costs.
  • Log, log and log. Verbose logging will make application troubleshooting easier.
  • Design your systems for scaling out, not up. If dealing w/ an existing system some code refactoring may be necessary.
  • Use database partitioning techniques (the database also has to scale out due to the 10 GB limitation on the db size).
  • Plan your data migration.
  • Store sensitive customer data on premises.
  • Use proper State management techniques - think “Stateless”.
