You have SharePoint in your enterprise, you are trying to figure out how to take advantage of Azure for the availability and scalability. How do all the pieces fit together? How do you choose what goes where? Steve Fox does a great job not only explaining the landscape, so you can figure out where you fit, but also walks through the options available for the architectural decisions you have to make to design and build your applications.

The integration options for SharePoint can be challenging to learn for the uninitiated. Steve does a great job explaining the process of connecting SharePoint to SQL Azure Data with an External Content Type. The beauty is the use of SharePoint (out of the box) with external content. The end user is none the wiser, they just find that is "works".

The approach taken for each exercises are based on business need, not driven by "cool technology". The security section demonstrates techniques for ensuring that, wherever your data, the connections and information remain secure. From Web Part to Web Service, the examples are educational and relevant. If you are looking to develop for the cloud and you are working with SharePoint, this book is a great jumping off point to get you going in the right direction.

Truth in advertising: I was the technical reviewer for this book

If you are a SharePoint professional trying to understand how the "cloud" relates to your world, this book is gold. The book assumes good SharePoint development knowledge, but little Azure knowledge. So you can start from scratch, set up a new Azure account, and build solutions. Each chapter is completely hands-on and will take you from zero to a complete solution. Working through all the chapters will expose you to all manner of integration strategies including Business Connectivity Services, SQL Azure, Web Roles, Worker Roles, list integration, events, and more. After completeing the book, you'll have lots of new ideas for SharePoint/Azure solutions and a much better understanding of why the "cloud" is important.

This book dives into the many possibilities how you can leverage Azure components from within SharePoint. Steve explores things like using the service bus, SQL Azure, Windows Azure, Access Control Service, claims and the Azure blob storage. As someone who's spent a little time with Azure this is one heck of a resource. Some things I've played with a bit but those I haven't spent time with are covered in great depth with good details to get up to speed. I really like how Steve has filled the book with a ton of references to other resources within each chapter but also at the end of each chapter for further reading.

This is a fantastic book for anyone considering integrating SharePoint with Azure, and I'd highly recommend it. Steve Fox, an industry thought leader who has focused on integrating cutting-edge technologies in the past, has done it again. The book gives great overviews of the various capabilities of both Azure and SharePoint and then dives deep, focusing on the a variety of approaches in getting these two platforms to work well together. Steve covers not just the 'what' and 'how', but also explains why you might build a solution that integrates Azure and SP for a scenario and why you should consider one approach in building a solution over another.

The book goes step-by-step through several interesting code and no-code solutions with a good level of detail and a lot of screenshots. There are a number of different moving parts and Steve does a good job of explaining it all and bringing it together for a complete solution. I also really appreciate that an entire chapter is dedicated to security, which I consider an incredibly important aspect of any solution integrating Azure and SharePoint.
