Building Microservices on Azure

With Azure

Microservices have become a popular architectural style for building cloud applications that are resilient, highly scalable, and able to evolve quickly. In this post, we explore how to build and run a microservices architecture on Azure, using Kubernetes as a container orchestrator. Future articles will include Service Fabric.
The following common open source technologies are used:

1- Azure Container Service (Kubernetes) to run front-end and back-end services.
2- Azure Functions to run event driven services.
3- Linkerd to manage inter-service communication.
4- Prometheus to monitor system/application metrics.
5- Fluentd and Elasticsearch to monitor application logs.
6- Cosmos DB, Azure Data Lake Store, and Azure Redis Cache to store different types of data.

Azure Service Fabric is a Platform as a Service (PaaS) offering from Microsoft. Azure SQL Database, Azure DocumentDB, Azure IoT, Cortana, Power BI, Microsoft Intune, Event Hubs and Skype for Business are some of the products from Microsoft that leverage Service Fabric. Service Fabric provides the infrastructure to run massive scale, reliable, stateless or stateful services. It provides end-to-end application lifecycle management and provides container and process orchestration services and health monitoring.
