About this book


Implement microservices starting with their architecture and moving on to their deployment, manageability, security, and monitoring. This book explains the concepts of microservices architecture and discusses the pros and cons of migrating versus developing .NET-based applications on containers in Microsoft Azure.

Building Microservices Applications on Microsoft Azure begins with a survey of microservices architecture compared to monolithic architecture and covers microservices implementation in detail. From there, you will explore microservices deployment on Azure, including containers, Azure Service Fabric, and Azure SQL database. Next, you will learn about monitoring options for Azure Service Fabric clusters and work with the various Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS) options.

Finally, you’ll wrap up with a discussion of the various database options for microservices applications and cover how to build hybrid applications using Microsoft Azure Stack. After reading this book, you will be able to build microservices applications from scratch and harness the power of containers on the Microsoft Azure platform.      

You will:
  • Understand the criteria used in microservices and monolithic applications
  • Build scalable, agile, and secure microservices applications on Microsoft Azure 
  • Create hybrid microservices applications on Microsoft Azure stack
  • Organize and monitor microservices applications running on containers using Kubernetes
  • Secure ASP.NET MVC, MVC Web API, and SPA microservices
