Book Review: Migrating to BizTalk Server 2020

Review of the Book, Migrating to BizTalk Server 2020

This book is written by Sandro Pereira, Tom Canter and Lex Hegt, all well known people in the BizTalk sphere. After the dedication about the Authors the introduction starts with an interesting brief history of the various BizTalk Server and then dives straight into what this book is for and what it covers, which unsurprisingly is about how to migrate from earlier version of BizTalk to the latest version Microsoft BizTalk Server 2020. And that is just the introduction.

The next chapters give an Overview of BizTalk Server 2020, what might be some of the reasons why you would want to upgrade; what you need to do to prepare for the migration; the options of doing an in-place upgrade (but also covers why you shouldn’t do this); migrating in a side by side way; and also looks at the option of migrating to Azure. Lastly it has an Appendix that list the BizTalk Dependencies their EOL (End Of Life), which can be one of the justifications you need for an upgrade.

All in all a very comprehensive book and something that you should read if you do have some older BizTalk environments that you are planning to migrate away from. As I’m currently in the midst of a project to migrate of both BizTalk 2010 and BizTalk 2016 to BizTalk 2020, this book has already proven valuable.

White Paper : “The A-Y of running BizTalk Server in Microsoft Azure” now available for download from BizTalk 360 White Paper collection

Adventures inside the Message Box

I’m pleased to announce that the White Paper titled “The A-Y of running BizTalk Server in Microsoft Azure” which I have been working on for the last two months is now available to download on the BizTalk 360 White Paper collection.

Writing this White Paper has been a momentous task, especially given that Microsoft Azure is an ever-changing entity (I’m pretty certain my synopsis on D-series VMs is already a bit dated since Microsoft have recently released new information stating that they sport faster CPUs, which I was previously unaware of, in addition to having SSDs) and I owe all the reviewers a big deal of thanks for their help.

This endeavour started out as a blog post (I just deleted the draft) and it quickly became apparent that the topic was well larger than anything I could cover within a single post and required a lot more attention…
