The Azure Cloud Native Architecture Mapbook

By: Stéphane Eyskens, Ed Price

Overview of this book

Azure offers a wide range of services that enable a million ways to architect your solutions. Complete with original maps and expert analysis, this book will help you to explore Azure and choose the best solutions for your unique requirements. Starting with the key aspects of architecture, this book shows you how to map different architectural perspectives and covers a variety of use cases for each architectural discipline. You'll get acquainted with the basic cloud vocabulary and learn which strategic aspects to consider for a successful cloud journey. As you advance through the chapters, you'll understand technical considerations from the perspective of a solutions architect. You'll then explore infrastructure aspects, such as network, disaster recovery, and high availability, and leverage Infrastructure as Code (IaC) through ARM templates, Bicep, and Terraform. The book also guides you through cloud design patterns, distributed architecture, and ecosystem solutions, such as Dapr, from an application architect's perspective. You'll work with both traditional (ETL and OLAP) and modern data practices (big data and advanced analytics) in the cloud and finally get to grips with cloud native security. By the end of this book, you'll have picked up best practices and more rounded knowledge of the different architectural perspectives.

Oil and gas scenarios

For our oil and gas architectures, we've got a nice variety that spans HPC, analytics, and IoT-focused scenarios. First, let's unravel the challenge of computing 3D modeling and seismic data.

Run reservoir simulation software on Azure

Our first scenario focuses heavily on HPC, which ties into what we learned in Chapter 3, Infrastructure Design. This architecture, Run reservoir simulation software on Azure, allows you to compute 3D reservoir modeling and visualize seismic data! This includes a sample INTERSECT simulation from Microsoft customer Schlumberger. The HB-series of high-performance VMs are deployed as a VMSS, which are multiple, identical VMs that are able to scale and complete high-performance compute tasks. Azure CycleCloud operates, manages, schedules, and deploys the big compute clusters.
