If you're looking to run production applications in the cloud, architecting a fault tolerant design is critically important. This session will cover the basics and explore the patterns and practices for designing and implementing highly available and resilient deployments on the Microsoft Azure cloud. You'll learn how to eliminate single points of failure, implement loosely coupled components, and make use of multiple regions to build geographic redundancy into your applications. You'll learn how you can build systems that scale dynamically based on application demand, and how to use monitoring and alerting to ensure that you're aware of the availability and performance of your applications. After this session, you'll be ready to start moving servers into production on the Azure platform.

You will learn:

  • The basics of cloud architecture
  • How to design highly available applications in the cloud
  • How to deploy apps that scale automatically
