Microsoft .NET Services SDK (July 2009 CTP)

by admin July 8, 2009 at 6:20 pm

Microsoft .NET Services is part of the Azure Services Platform. Microsoft .NET Services includes two services: the Access Control Service and the Service Bus.

Microsoft .NET Services is a set of Microsoft-hosted, highly scalable, developer-oriented services that provide key building blocks required by many cloud-based and cloud-aware applications. Much like the .NET Framework provides higher-level class libraries that make developers more productive, .NET Services can help developers focus on their application logic rather than building and deploying their own cloud-based infrastructure services.

From an interoperability perspective, the .NET Services are also available to other development technologies through the use of industry-standard protocols such as REST, SOAP, and HTTP. While more services are in the works, .NET Services currently includes three core components — the Access Control Service, Service Bus, and Workflow service.

This SDK includes API libraries, tools, samples, and documentation for building connected applications with the .NET platform. It spans the entire spectrum of today’s Internet applications – from rich connected applications with advanced connectivity requirements to Web-style applications that use simple protocols such as HTTP and Atom to communicate with the broadest possible range of clients.

Supported Operating Systems: Windows 7; Windows Server 2008; Windows Vista
