Overview of this book

Microsoft Azure is currently one of the fastest growing public cloud service providers thanks to its sophisticated set of services for building fault-tolerant and scalable cloud-based applications. This second edition of Azure for Developers will take you on a journey through the various PaaS services available in Azure, including Azure App Service, Azure Functions, and Azure SQL Databases, showing you how to build a complete and reliable system with ease. Throughout the book, you’ll discover ways to enhance your skills when building cloud-based solutions leveraging different SQL/NoSQL databases, serverless and messaging components, containerized solutions, and even search engines such as Azure Cognitive Search. That’s not all!! The book also covers more advanced scenarios such as scalability best practices, serving static content with Azure CDN, and distributing loads with Azure Traffic Manager, Azure Application Gateway, and Azure Front Door. By the end of this Azure book, you’ll be able to build modern applications on the Azure cloud using the most popular and promising technologies to make your solutions reliable, stable, and efficient.

Federation – events replication

Most realistic architectures assume that there is more than a single Event Hub instance. This is especially true in all those scenarios where data is aggregated across multiple regions, and you need a way to merge all the streams. There are many patterns that should be considered when implementing more advanced architectures based on Event Hubs:

  • The availability of messages across multiple namespaces
  • Latency optimization
  • The additional validation of messages with optional reduction or enrichment
  • Pre-batching messages for further analysis

Now, depending on the scenario, a different approach should be taken. You might consider what technologies there are that can be used to handle those situations. While Azure Event Hubs can be considered a service, which can be integrated even with components that are non-native to Azure, there are two services that can easily help when managing complex architectures.
