Microsoft Azure supports Node.js for building scalable and resilient cloud applications. This course covers the main Azure services including load balancing, caching, partitioning, content delivery networks and performance testing.
Designing applications in the cloud requires a different style of thinking, and deep knowledge of cloud infrastructure and services. In this course, Microsoft Azure for Node.js Developers - Cloud Patterns and Architecture, you'll learn how various Azure services can help build scalable and resilient applications. First, you'll explore how to use specific Azure resources to add redundancy, fail-over, and load balancing to a system. Next, you'll support scaling with partitioning and caching. Finally, you'll discover Content Delivery Networks, API management, and performance testing. When you're finished with this course, you'll have covered multiple resources that will help you as you build scalable Node applications in Microsoft Azure. This course is adapted from "Microsoft Azure for .NET Developers - Cloud Patterns and Architecture" by Scott Allen.

Course Overview This is Simon Allardice, and welcome to Microsoft Azure for Node. js Developers - Cloud Patterns and Architecture. In this course, we will look at techniques and patterns for designing and building scalable, resilient cloud applications, and the features of Microsoft Azure that can help us. But designing applications in the cloud requires a deep knowledge of cloud infrastructure and services; we'll begin with that. You'll then explore specific Azure resources for adding redundancy, failover or load balancing to a system. You'll support scaling with partitioning and caching, and implement content delivery networks, API management and performance testing. When you're finished with this course you'll have covered multiple resources that will help you to build scalable Node applications in Microsoft Azure. Thanks for joining me. Let's begin.
