Cloud Scalability Patterns with Matt Johnson

Sign in to queue

Description

Matt, from the Patterns and Practices group, spent some time discussing some interesting considerations we should all have when moving our applications to the cloud. He was very thorough! He did a great job in filling in those important architectural gaps that are essential for creating powerful and resilient applications in the cloud. Here is a great breakdown of the things he discussed:

  1. Decomposition
    • Logical
    • Physical
  2. Partitioning
    • Size/Perf Limits
    • Vertical vs Horizontal
    • Multi Tenant
    • Azure SQL Elastic DB
  3. Density
    • Idleness
    • Async
    • Bulk Operations
  4. Performance
    • Monitoring
    • Tuning
    • Bottlenecks
  5. Development Patterns
    • CQRS
    • Cache/CDN

To learn more, Matt also provided some really helpful links:

    Hello,

    Great video!

    It is great to know that p&p team is now part of AzureCat team. 

    I have been waiting for video like this for very long time.

    After Fail Safe series there was not so focused architecture guidance on cloud topics in my opinion.

    Why don't we have p&p show on channel 9 that explore in details cloud architecture, scalability, resiliency and a lot more so Azure developers can have better guidance for building great cloud solutions.

    Is there a way to make request chnannel 9 to host show like this?

    Thank you in advance!

    Sharding is a 1970's approach named Federated Database. Nothing new under the sun, except the redundant vocabulary.

    Nice video which confirms most of the patterns we've choosen to write our SaaS product.

    While CQRS is mentioned a lot when people talk about the cloud and Microsoft has written a book about it in the past (2012) I don't see it explicitly highlighted much here on channel 9.

    As Kanio_Dimitrov mentioned it would be very nice if there would be a series which highlighted the best practices of the available techniques with cloud and scalibility in mind.

    Maybe also time for an update of the CQRS Journey book with the now available techniques?
