Sitefinity 4.1 release brought support for Windows Azure allowing you to host your web application in the cloud. Along with the Windows Azure deployment scenario, Sitefinity also supports SQL Azure and multiple instances of your web application to achieve maximum availability. The synergy of running Sitefinity on Windows Azure delivers great platform with guaranteed up-time, scalability and no administrative costs for maintaining your web infrastructure. In this blog post I will summarize the current state of Sitefinity and Azure and I will share a glimpse on what we will look forward to including in our upcoming releases.
Running Sitefinity on Azure gives you the following benefits
The Sitefinity 4.1 SP2 release brings a number of important optimizations and azure features that are not supported in the previous versions. Sitefinity now stores its configuration files that contain information for various settings and permissions of the system in the database. Previously the configuration files were stored in the file system and any modifications were not persisted in case of emergency. With SP2 if there is scheduled or failover maintenance of your dedicated virtual machines where it is necessary for Microsoft to take down your server and setup a new one with your deployment package, the product will automatically reinitiate its state.
To ensure maximum performance it is best to setup your Azure deployment in multiple instances scenario. In this case if there is a failover of one of your server, your website load will be automatically transferred to one of the running servers so that there is no interruption of your service.
The team is looking further to enrich its Azure support by providing the following features in our long-term roadmap:
We are eager to hear about your success story with Sitefinity and Azure and share your website as a Sitefinity featured showcase!
