For application providers, cloud computing has the advantage that it reduces the administrative e ort required to satisfy processing and storage requirements. However, to simplify the task of building scalable applications, some of the cloud computing platforms impose constraints on the application architecture, its implementation and tools that may be used in development; Microsoft Azure is no exception. This paper shows how an existing drug discovery system - Discovery Bus - can benefit from Azure even though none of its components was built in the .Net framework.
