I’ll be posting practice questions for the 70-583: PRO: Designing and Developing Windows Azure Applications certification all week. I haven’t seen the test, and I apologize if these questions aren’t representative of the actual exam, however, they focus on the topics outlined by Microsoft.
Your company has been working on a new analytics website hosted on Windows Azure. For the past three months, the site has been a single web role with a splash page touting the new features. Your team has finished development on the website, and the data analytics will be powerful. This requires your web application to use 4 web roles and two worker roles at launch. What is the best way to deploy the new version of this analytics website?
- Delete the existing Azure Application and deploy the new application with the same VIP Name
- Choose Upgrade on the existing application and upgrade your application in place.
- Create a second Azure application and deploy the new version of the application to the new Azure application. Update the original application to redirect to the new application
- Upload the new version to the staging configuration of the existing Azure application and perform a VIP swap.
