Last updated on 2019-04-04
About the Book
Take your web development skills to the next level. The book is a comprehensive walkthrough for building globally-distributed modern applications with Microsoft Azure.
Design for high Performance and Scalability
The first 4 parts cover the most important Azure Services that help you design and build robust and highly available Web Apps which span more than one regions and serve hundreds of thousand users over the world. You will learn how to properly configure and combine Redis Cache, Azure Cosmos DB, Azure Search, Storage Accounts, SQL Active Geo-Replication, Azure Traffic Manager, CDN services and several others to handle high loads and allow easier scaling. Using the associated source code you will deploy a cross-platform application built with .NET Core and Angular in multiple Azure Regions.
Anything that is repeated should be scripted
The last part of the book covers all the DevOps processes needed to automate releases in globally-distributed applications. Business continuity in geographically distributed systems with SQL Active Geo-Replication is a tough task to accomplish. You will learn how to structure and design resource groups, how to effortless provision their resources and release or rolling back new versions of your software, without affecting the end user experience.
How should read this book
The book can help developers, architects or companies to understand how to migrate their monolithic web applications to a more scalable, maintainable and high performance solution in Microsoft Azure by breaking and moving individual components and responsibilities to specific Azure Services. More over, since a cloud and geo-distributed application has more complex life cycle, the book and the associated code provides complete DevOps workflows and PowerShell scripts. The scripts can run not only in Windows but also in Mac and Linux platforms using PowerShell Core.
