Microservices Hosting on Azure: 2-h Briefing


Guidelines for cost-effective microservices hosting and orchestration on Azure

As your technology partner, SDX realizes complex Software Development, Data Analytics, and DevOps projects - on-premises and on Azure.
As part of our effort, we offer briefing sessions (Technical Councils) demonstrating how Microservices can be used to gradually supersede traditional monolithic systems, and which hosting options Microsoft Azure offers to host these Microservices.

The session is aimed at customers with general or specific interest in using Azure as the future platform for hosting Microservices, taking full advantage of the scalability and cost optimization opportunities offered by the cloud. It enables you to gain a good understanding of Azure services as well as their suitability for small, medium, or large scale Microservices hosting and orchestration. The main focus is on service selection, cost-optimization and the comparison of pros and cons of each service. We begin by introducing the use of Microservices as an architectural approach, followed by an overview of Azure IaaS/PaaS/SaaS services for Microservices hosting. We then provide a detailed comparison of benefits, shortcomings, and cost, using a typical production scenario as a foundation, and conclude with recommendations and best practices.
