The Microsoft P&P EntLib Team is working on the Windows Azure Integration pack for the Enterprise Library. I’m participating as expert advisor, and It is a very enriching experience.
Yesterday they released the first preview of the “Windows Azure Auto-scaling Application Block” (codename WASABi). Basically it is a component that allow you to increase or decrease the number of instances that host your role based on a set of rules that you can configure. This is a great feature.Autoscaling is something that I was waiting for, I’d worked in many projects where I needed something like this.
The component is published as a Nuget Package, just do (or search for for Wasabi in the Nuget Package portal):
|PM> Install-Package EnterpriseLibrary.WindowsAzure.Autoscaling.Preview|
For an introduction to this block, you should look this presentation in channel 9. I’ll be posting some examples on this in the next days.
