Mastering Cloud Development using Microsoft Azure

By: Roberto Freato, Marco Parenzan

Overview of this book

Microsoft Azure is a cloud computing platform that supports many different programming languages, tools, and frameworks, including both Microsoft-specific and third-party software and systems. This book starts by helping you set up a professional development environments in the cloud and integrating them with your local environment to achieve improved efficiency. You will move on to create front-end and back-end services, and then build cross-platform applications using Azure. Next you’ll get to grips with advanced techniques used to analyze usage data and automate billing operations. Following on from that, you will gain knowledge of how you can extend your on-premise solution to the cloud and move data in a pipeline. In a nutshell, this book will show you how to build high-quality, end-to-end services using Microsoft Azure. By the end of this book, you will have the skillset needed to successfully set up, develop, and manage a full-stack Azure infrastructure.

CloudMakers needs to manage some old software solutions already developed before this cloud experience. The migration in the cloud should be transparent, because there is not a specific activity for the customer. They need to recreate the same deployment environment for three-tier web applications to minimize the impact of the migration.

A frontend web server and a backend relational database make up the infrastructure for a typical three-tier, data-centric application. It was a common solution back in the last decade (and in some cases, a common solution today). This is due to some facts, which are mentioned here:

  • The lack of affordable and performing alternatives to a relational database brought us to the typical "database-first" approach, best supported by tools that "scaffold" the database and automatically build the pages for CRUD operations.

  • There was no culture for scalability, as all invocations were synchronous. So, one of the main topics was the correct sizing of the...
