Today the P&P Team has released the Enterprise Library Integration Pack for Windows Azure. I’ve been collaborating with the team as advisor and It was a very enriching experience.
Among others, the release includes:
Two news application blocks:
- Autoscaling Application Block (code name "Wasabi") to help you to automatically scale both web and worker roles in Windows Azure by dynamically provisioning/decommissioning roles or throttling. These scaling actions are based on timetables or on metrics collected from the application and/or Windows Azure Diagnostics.
- Transient Fault Handling Application Block (code name "Topaz") to help you make your Windows Azure application more resilient to transient errors when you are using these cloud services: SQL Azure, Windows Azure Storage, Windows Azure Caching, and Windows Azure Service Bus.
One new configuration source:
- Blob configuration source to load configuration information from a blob in your Azure Storage account so that you can modify it without having to redeploy your application to Windows Azure.
The release is published as a nuget package here.
