  • First Look at Built-in Autoscaling and Alerting Capabilities

    by Paul Bouwer

    One of the key benefits of Windows Azure is that you can dynamically scale your application in response to changing demand. In the past, though, you have had to either manually change the scale of your application, or use additional tooling (such as WASABi or MetricsHub) to automatically scale your application. Now, AutoScale has been built into Windows Azure directly.

    Alerting has also been added. There is the ability to now easily create alerting rules based on monitoring metrics and get notified on active or impending issues within your application that require attention.

    Come along for this first look at these exciting new additions to the Azure Platform.
