  • User-281478363 posted

    Hi, 

       I am building a web form application on ASP.NET using VS 2008 Framework 2.0. I want to convert/migrate from VS 2008 to 2013 making it a Cloud application - using Azure. I also want to use DataBase. Is it ok to create DB right now in 2008 and then it can be easily migrated to 2013 azure cloud application ??

       I believe this should be possible. If so, how can I achieve it. Kindly guide me for this query.

       Any help is highly appreciated.

    Thanks

    Hi ,

    At present I have created an ASP.NET Web Forms application using SQL Server. I have used Membership facility.   How do I deploy it ?? What could be the best option to deploy it ?

    I suggest you take a look at the Azure documentation. Azure is just a cloud implementation platform. Everything remains the same. It is not that in Azure, your web form app will behave differently. All the basics and implementation process is same.

    You will have to create a web role in Azure and add your web application to it. Also Membership is bit outdated rather use ASP.NET Identity.

    Hope it helps!

    Hi jassi_tkm,

    You could simply deploy your web application to Windows Azure ,please refer to the tutorial :

    http://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/documentation/articles/web-sites-deploy/

    http://devnet.kentico.com/docs/6_0/azureguide/index.html?deploying_existing_site_to_azure.htm

    If you want to mirgrate your website to Azure Cloud Service,please refer to the documentation:

    Hi,

    I also want to use DataBase. Is it ok to create DB right now in 2008 and then it can be easily migrated to 2013 azure cloud application ??

    There are few things to keep in mind as a beginner in cloud.

    1. Be sure of what DB to be used. If you are using Azure SQL Tables it will be fine but if you are about to use Azure Tables it is quite different. Most beginners think they are the same thing but they are not. Azure Tables are not exactly the relational database tables like SQL Tables. At the same time in cloud everything is paid so you might want to consider that.

    Check this out :

    http://stackoverflow.com/questions/10257872/azure-tables-vs-sql-azure

    2. VS 2013 , latest Azure SDK is 2.5. Now most people do not consider it at first but Tracing and Tracking error is the most discussed topic in Cloud. Azure SDK 2.5 does not support Tracing to local Compute Emulator. That simply means to check and trace you application for performance and other issues you won't be able to use local environment storage. You will have to use the Azure Tables which is again available with the paid subscription. 

    Check the link below:

    http://azure.microsoft.com/blog/2014/11/12/announcing-azure-sdk-2-5-for-net-and-visual-studio-2015-preview/

    I would suggest you to use Azure SDK 2.4 which will enable you to use local Compute Emulator. We migrated out website to SDK 2.5 recently and we learnt it the hard way.

    Do a little research on your needs before moving to Azure. Especially if you want it to be cost effective transition. Apart from that you would end up just fine!
