Advanced Serverless Architectures with Microsoft Azure: Build complex, observable, and fault-tolerant serverless systems easily on Microsoft Azure
Advanced Serverless Architectures with Microsoft Azure redefines your experience of designing serverless systems. It shows you how to tackle challenges of varying levels, not just the straightforward ones. You’ll be learning how to deliver features quickly by building systems, which retain the scalability and benefits of serverless.
You’ll begin your journey by learning how to build a simple, completely serverless application. Then, you’ll build a highly scalable solution using a queue, load messages onto the queue, and read them asynchronously. To boost your knowledge further, the book also features durable functions and ways to use them to solve errors in a complex system. You’ll then learn about security by building a security solution from serverless components. Next, you’ll gain an understanding of observability and ways to leverage application insights to bring you performance benefits. As you approach the concluding chapters, you’ll explore chaos engineering and the benefits of resilience, by actively switching off a few of the functions within a complex system, submitting a request, and observing the resulting behavior.
By the end of this book, you will have developed the skills you need to build and maintain increasingly complex systems that match evolving platform requirements.
