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.

About telemetry data

Let's start with the question: What is telemetry data? The term telemetry, refers to the transmission of measured values from a sensor to a spatially separated location.

At this receiving point, the measured values are either only recorded and collected, or transferred directly to an evaluation process.

The acquisition of telemetry data is often supplemented by a path of action to the detecting sensor, so as to be able to respond to the delivered measured values with suitable actions. This return path is called remote control.

Let's move on to the area of monitoring. Here, we could also talk about a telemetry process. For example, a network device can assume the role of a sensor and constantly transmit data about the state of the connection, latency, and much more.

Although we can speak of telemetry, I would like to introduce a second term that is more common when using monitoring solutions: metrics.

What is a metric?

A metric is a collection of telemetry data that is visualized...
