Episode 213: Azure App Service Best Practices for Large Scale Applications
In this episode Chris Risner and Haishi Bai are joined by Byron Tardiff, Program Manager on the Azure App Services team. Byron joins us to talk about building high scale applications on the Azure App Service platform. Specifically, he discusses steps you should take if you would like support up to 1 million requests per second. Throughout the episode, Byron uses a real example of work he did with the CBC News to support the Canada Votes 2015 voting process. First Byron goes over general strategy for breaking up the different tiers of an application and how you can architect them to best support so many requests. He then breaks it down and goes over how that strategy can be applied to applications running in Azure App Service. Byron also discusses the importance of running load tests throughout development to ensure your application can support it when it is used in production.
