Yesterday Pete and I did a presentation on the story behind our project so far and the technologies we have used at a PDC event in Manchester.
We presented a short overview of the history of our project so far and then talked about some of the technical solutions that we’ve been exploring for our project. We mentioned the benefits that the cloud platform offered a project such as ours, the key point being scalability, so when there is a big influx of traffic (i.e. after a disaster) we can scale our resources appropriately and in quieter times, shrink them down – keeping us efficient.
This fitted in well with the PDC event itself, which had a lot of exciting news for developers in regards to the cloud platform. There were announcement on the Azure platform’s new features, focussing on the ease of migrating existing systems to the cloud and offering integrations with existing systems with “public” and “private” clouds.
