Hi,

We are evaluating hosting for our WCF Web APIs.

Are there any recommendations on this topic?

We are already using Amazon hosting(For some other purposes), is it advisable to host WCF Web APIs there?

Also on azure stack, what are trade-offs between AppFabric and standard Web Role hosting?What's best for WCF Web API?

Thanks.

Here's a video about AppFabric ServiceBus's HTTP/Web API.

AppFabric appears more like Messages/Queue solution.

We are building APIs to be consumed mostly by iPad/Android/WP7.

Messages/Queues don;t make sense in that scenario(data to be returned from API is expected to be instataneous).

Also I am trying to make sense of putting MVC 3 solution used to build APIs, hows that going to be hosted on AF.

AppFabric is so confusing :-(
