The economics of IT is changing rapidly, and organizations are searching to widen and secure availability of their systems and at the same time lower costs which is exactly what the cloud meant to do. Running your systems on Microsoft’s Windows Azure cloud for example would improve and secure the availability, accessibility and scalability (both up and down) of your systems and support the new IT economics.

However, in order to take advantage of the cloud's promise of lower cost of ownership, the applications must be built or adjusted to work on that platform and in most cases this is not a simple task.  Even existing web applications cannot always be transferred to Azure without some changes, and for client/server applications, the task is way more challenging even to the point where it seems impossible. The reason is the gaps between the client/server desktop technology and the cloud's. For that reason, most of the known methodologies to migrate existing client/server applications actually involve rewrite of the desktop systems for the cloud.

A unique approach is introduced by Visual WebGui which creates a virtualization layer atop ASP.Net web server, it moves the transformed or generated .Net code to that layer, and then using a patent pending protocol it renders a user interface within a plain browser. The end result is pure .NET code that is a base code for a pure rich web application and now due to a collaboration with Microsoft Windows Azure Visual WebGui provides the shortest path from client/server to the Azure cloud by being able to handle close to 95% of the transformation to the cloud platform in an automatic way.

In today's era, professionals are more specific and stick to particular technology. So, the main problem is how to integrate code written in different platforms. And obviously answer is Microsoft.NET. That's why I use this technology frequently and I like it very much..

The filing is necessary to create a partnership, and without an agreement, the relationships and legal rights of the partners will be entirely governed by the law of the jurisdiction where the partnership is located. Thanks a lot.

I saw the video and seems to be a complete tool. I don't really like the server part. There are some tricks in it! Until now I did not find some documentation!

There are plenty of articles on our website explaining the tools and the underlying technology of Visual WebGui. Check the technology section and the White Papers.

Anyways, this one might be the one you are looking for:

the client side is not user friendly. Maybe you should change at least the appearance.

I am not sure what you are refering to, the example is of an exact migration of client/server application to the web which means that the requirement in this case was to duplicate the functionality and the UI. Modifying and upgrading the client side is obviously possible.

Moreover, we are about to release a Visual Studio integrated beta version of the complete migration & modernization solution soon.

I don't know if you're familiar with kentico CMS, it's and ASP.NET cms that we use to build our client's websites. I was wondering if a website build with this can be migrated to Azure? Now we host both files and database on the same server. What would be the advantages of using azure, because i've heard some things about it, but still, it's been a couple of years since it's been launched and there wasn't such a big buzz around it.. does this mean it's not as effective as it should be? or the benefits aren't that big?

I didn't know you could use ASP.NET cms to build websites. I might start suggesting this to our software developers.

Thanks for the idea.
