The multi-tier ASP.NET web application demonstrates how to use Windows Azure Storage tables, queues, and blobs.
The SiteMonitR sample demonstrates how a Windows Azure Cloud Service and a Windows Azure Web Site can use SignalR to communicate in an asynchronous communication. The SiteMonitR Cloud Service pings all of the sites in a list of sites stored in Windows Azure Table Storage. As each site's status is obtained, it is sent over to a SignalR Hub housed in a Windows Azure Web Site. When the SignalR Hub receives notifications for a site, the Web Site's user interface is updated in real-time. The result is a web site monitoring application that provides up-to-date status of web sites, giving site administrators real-time data on how their sites are performing.
Technologies used: Web Sites, Cloud Services, Table Service, SignalR
