Windows Azure Integration Pack

Greetings!

Feel free to suggest stories and vote for the existing ones to help us determine what will go in the release of the Enterprise Library 5.0 Windows Azure Integration Pack.

Please note this list may not always represent the actual priority list for the patterns & practices development team. It also does not constitute any commitments.

There are at least 4 pages of stories. Make sure to review all of them.

What do you want to see in Windows Azure Integration Pack for Enterprise Library?

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".
(thinking…)

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can vote and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can vote on it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

            An API/ framework that makes it easy to implement multi-tenancy in a Windows Azure application. Not only from a code standpoint of view, but also a multi-tenant database.

                • Diagnostics: cleanup mechanism for WAD tables

                  As an administrator I want to have a policy-based mechanism to purge the entries in the WAD tables so that I can optimize the usage of storage. The policies should consider kind of entry, severity, age, etc.

                    • Upload selected files and folders

                      As a developer, I would like to upload selected folders and files to Azure instead of deploying the full solution to Azure. For example when you need to replace a small image or other resource file.

                        • Distributed synchronization

                          For complex application, an idea of distributed synchronization mechanism should be implemented. Especially in the case of Enterprise Applications, one would very often need one of N roles to take ownership of a resource (e.g. as a Master Role).

                            As a developer I want to load configuration information from a web service so that I can keep my configuration on-premises or in a different cloud or in some arbitrary location, not packaged in the look for proper name of unit of deployment.

                            • Diagnostics: move older entries from Azure Storage

                              As a developer I want my log entries stored in Azure Storage to be transferred to a Remote Logging Service (or any other trace listener) based on the number of items OR age OR absolute size so that I could optimize my logging strategy AND archive my log entries to a on-premises data store.
