Amazon Helps .NET Developers Program for Its Clouds
Amazon has released the AWS SDK for .NET, a set of libraries, code samples and documentation for .NET developers creating applications that use Amazon’s cloud.
The libraries in AWS SDK for .NET provide a set of API to simplify the task of accessing Amazon’s cloud services. The API is wrapping up the following services: Elastic Compute Cloud, Simple Storage Service, Virtual Private Cloud, SimpleDB, Relational Database Service, CloudFront, Simple Queue Service, Elastic MapReduce, CloudWatch, Elastic Load Balancing, and Auto Scaling.
The API contains a number of interfaces and classes written in C# which can be called from any .NET language. The SDK includes several Visual Studio project templates to help developers start coding for AWS. It also contains C# code samples and documentation.
Users previously using the C# and VB.NET libraries for AWS are suggested to use the new SDK because this will be supported by Amazon in the future.
Requirements: .NET Framework 2.0 or better and VS 2008 or later. The source code of the SDK is available under Apache 2.0 license.
