This week’s reading list is lengthy and heavy…perfect for a rainy weekend (as is forecast for the Seattle area). This week’s list includes two white papers, one looking at a class of algorithms for distributed load balancing, and the other looking at Windows Azure as a NoSQL data store. When you finish those papers, there’s plenty more…everything from how to run multiple websites in a Web role to lessons learned about scaling. Better brew some coffee…
