- select the contributor at the end of the page -
Microsoft's Windows Azure Cloud services can scale out your hosted applications as load increases, but what if you need to take control of that process?  In this video excerpt from Zoiner Tejada's new course Elastic Scaling on Windows Azure you'll see how to create your own DataCollection process and hook that up to the scaling rules for your Azure deployment.  In the full course Zoiner covers scaling versus throttling, reactive autoscaling rules, and creating custom rule operands.


Zoiner Tejada is the president and chief problem solver at TejadaNET, providing strategic guidance to enterprises and startups leveraging cutting edge cloud technologies from Microsoft. He is passionate about leveraging cloud technologies and Windows Azure services to build web based solutions that run at scale. He is a Windows Azure MVP, an advisor to Microsoft, and enjoys engaging the greater community by speaking at conferences and user group meetings, teaching at UCSD, as well as via his recently published book Programming Microsoft's Clouds (Wrox). He has a degree in computer science from Stanford University.
