Putting this here as a growing data dump of links/resources around Project “Orleans”. What is Project Orleans?

Project “Orleans” provides a straightforward approach to building distributed high-scale computing applications, without the need to learn and apply complex concurrency or other scaling patterns. It was designed for use in the cloud, and has been used extensively in Microsoft Azure.

There’s a great story about how Orleans is used to back Halo and deliver stats and info in real time to gamers. You can read a great intro that explains what it is and how to get the bits for it here:


There was also an in-depth session at Build this year focussing on the Halo implementation. No video as posted yet (10:45 PM CST on April 2), but I expect it to go up here at some point:


Here’s a link to the CodePlex site for Project Orleans samples:


More links/info here as I find them.
