Designing, building, and operating microservices on Azure

Perfect reading material for during the Christmas holidays! Microsoft released some new material together with a reference implementation on how to build a microservices application on top of the Azure platform.

Microservices have become a popular architectural style for building cloud applications that are resilient, highly scalable, and able to evolve quickly. To be more than just a buzzword, however, microservices require a different approach to designing and building applications.

In this set of articles, we explore how to build and run a microservices architecture on Azure. Topics include:

  • Using Domain Driven Design (DDD) to design a microservices architecture.
  • Choosing the right Azure technologies for compute, storage, messaging, and other elements of the design.
  • Understanding microservices design patterns.
  • Designing for resiliency, scalability, and performance.
  • Building a CI/CD pipeline.
