Implementing Azure Cloud Design Patterns

By: Oliver Michalski, Stefano Demiliani

Overview of this book

A well designed cloud infrastructure covers factors such as consistency, maintenance, simplified administration and development, and reusability. Hence it is important to choose the right architectural pattern as it has a huge impact on the quality of cloud-hosted services. This book covers all Azure design patterns and functionalities to help you build your cloud infrastructure so it fits your system requirements. This book initially covers design patterns that are focused on factors such as availability and data management/monitoring. Then the focus shifts to complex design patterns such as multitasking, improving scalability, valet keys, and so on, with practical use cases. The book also supplies best practices to improve the security and performance of your cloud. By the end of this book, you will thoroughly be familiar with the different design and architectural patterns available with Windows Azure and capable of choosing the best pattern for your system.

Summary


In this chapter, we started with an insight into specific architecture aspects that are important for the daily use of the Azure platform and are part of the design process for your own Azure solutions. The main topic we focused on was availability. You have learned the basics and direct references to the Azure platform (for example, in the case of planned maintenance).

In the next chapter, we will continue with our series on special architecture aspects, this time with a focus on performance and scalability.
