Introduction to Windows Server AppFabric Hello and welcome to this module Introducing Windows Server AppFabric. My name is Matt Milner and I'm an instructor with Pluralsight. In this module we're going to take a look at what exactly Windows Server AppFabric is, the features that it provides at a high level, and understand how it compares to other places you might think of as endpoints or places to host your services or your workflows.
Managing AppFabric in IIS Hello and welcome to this module on Managing Services with IIS Manager. My name is Matt Milner. We're going to focus on getting your services deployed, and configured using Windows Server AppFabric. To start we're going to look at the various tools, and the tools architecture for Windows Server AppFabric. Then we're going to look at configuring WCF Services, just plain old WCF, as well as Workflow Services. And finally, I'll talk a little bit about how you can extend IIS Manager, and the tools that AppFabric gives you, with your own custom tools.
Managing AppFabric with PowerShell Welcome to this module on Administering AppFabric with Windows PowerShell. My name is Matt Milner, and I'm with Pluralsight. In this module we're going to take a look at some of the basics of getting your PowerShell environment set up for managing application server. We'll talk about the application server cmdlets to give you a high level idea of what's there and what you can do. And we'll see some examples of how we can manage services and service instances with those cmdlets.
AppFabric Runtime Services Hello and welcome to this module on the Windows Server AppFabric Runtime Services, or the AppFabric Services for your services. My name is Matt Milner, and I'll be your guide. In this module, we're going to take a look at some of the framework and platform services and how AppFabric leverages those or improves upon those. And then we'll dive into the two runtime services, the workflow management service and the event collection service.
Monitoring Services with AppFabric Welcome to this module on monitoring your hosted services in Windows Server AppFabric. My name is Matt Milner. In this module, we're going to take a look at how you can configure all the diagnostics in monitoring both with the IIS manager and with PowerShell. And then we'll look at how you can consume all that diagnostic data, again through PowerShell, through IIS Manager, but also through the SQL views that are created in the monitoring database. Then we'll wrap up by looking at typical problem-solving where you'll go out and find potential problems, suspended instances, and be able to restart workflow instances that have failed and been suspended.
