Azure Service Fabric is Microsoft's new PaaS (Platform as a Service) offering for building large-scale, distributed cloud applications. The service is expected to be previewed in late 2015 and be released in 2016. With Azure Fabric Service, you can: 1) rapidly develop and update microservice-based applications, accelerating delivery of new functions, 2) operate reliable hyper-scale services enabling in-place upgrades, automation, and application lifecycle management, and 3) deploy the same application code on public, hosted or private clouds as needed by using the consistent platform services and the same application model across Azure and on-premises and hosted datacenters.
Programming Microsoft Azure Service Fabric introduces this service to the public by showing how to implement a variety of real-world applications in detail. The author interviews a number of internal and external service users to summarize design patterns, tuning tips, and lessons learned, and then shares these experiences to the broad audience making use with step-by-step procedures and through the signature Inside Out sidebars.
The book introduces basic service concepts for this new product and cover VS tooling, portal experience, on-premises deployment, monitoring, diagnostics, as well as continuous integration, all from the perspective of developing and operating real-life projects.
