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.

Chapter 8. Deploying Solutions in Azure

We have already seen in the previous chapters that Azure is full of opportunities in terms of services available to be consumed in our solutions. The objective is developing code that is functional to solution objectives, more than non-functional aspects.

We have also told you that using Azure makes developers aware of the non-dev aspect of their work, which is called operations. We have spoken about networking and application lifecycle management, service management, and backup. It is always good that a developer knows about operations. However, there is something that is mandatory for dev about ops: deployment.

In the previous chapters, we used different ops tools, such as the PowerShell environment and APIs, the classic portal and new portal, and management APIs, to instantiate services when deploying our solution.

As we embrace the initial invitation to use Azure services as much as we can, we finally reach a complex solution made of different projects...
