Building systems in the cloud gives you a range of abilities to build scalable, resilient, and highly available applications. This course presents you with design patterns and systems architecture for applications in Microsoft Azure.
Building systems in the cloud gives you the ability to write highly available, highly scalable applications, and services that are resistant to failure. In this course, Microsoft Azure for .NET Developers - Cloud Patterns and Architecture, you'll learn the different architectural approach needed for building cloud applications, and see how various Azure services and resources fit into those architectures. First, you'll discover common architectural patterns used in Azure. Next, you'll learn how to design resilient systems with availability and disaster recovery in mind. Finally, you'll explore how to build for scalability and performance, so your applications can meet demand. By the end of the course, you'll have the patterns and architectural knowledge you need to build scalable, resilient Azure services and applications.
Course Overview Hi everyone. My name is Matthew Tester, and welcome to my course, Microsoft Azure for .NET Developers ‑ Cloud Architecture and Patterns. I'm a technology consultant and cloud architect at Pure Blue Consulting in New Zealand. When building large scale systems, Azure can take care of the complicated infrastructure for us, allowing us to focus on our business problems just as long as we know how and when to use the services on offer. To be able to maximize the advantages granted by Azure, we need to ensure we leverage the platform and its services in full. In this course, we're going to look at building systems in Microsoft Azure, which are also resilient, scalable, and highly available. Some of the major topics that we'll cover include the common patterns used when building systems in Azure, how the different Azure services and features can help you achieve your design goals, using load balancers and message queues to improve resiliency, and working at scale by making use of caching, partitioning, and other techniques. By the end of this course, you will know how Azure can be used to create your own scalable and resilient systems. Before beginning the course you should have some foundational knowledge of Azure and be familiar with C#. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn about building reliable and scalable cloud systems with the course Microsoft Azure for .NET Developers ‑ Cloud Architecture and Patterns at Pluralsight.
