This book reveals the technical challenges and successful implementation details of migrating MSN, Microsoft’s consumer content portal--a business with 450 million worldwide users--into the Cloud. Following a technique long used in aviation, medicine, and other fields, MSN’s Chief Technical Officer, Eric Passmore, describes the set of release, deployment, monitoring, and mitigation checklists used to build cloud services supporting hundreds of millions of users on Azure, Microsoft’s Public Cloud.
An undertaking of this scale--involving services supported by a large team of engineers--involves unique challenges and risks. This book demonstrates through personal experience how to cut through the theory and provides checklists as a surprisingly simple antidote to the competing methodologies.
This book works at two levels.
It contains simple to follow, "how-to" information on cloud migration. It is a reference guide to achieving success, and any team can modify these tasks to fit the needs of their own organization.
