Microservices, IoT and Azure

Leveraging DevOps and Microservice Architecture to deliver SaaS Solutions
by Bob Familiar, published by Apress Publishing.

Microservices, IoT & Azure provides practical guidance on how to adopt a Microservices Architecture and leverage Microsoft’s Azure Platform in order to build highly scalable, resilient, Software-as-a-Service solutions. Bob Familiar, Practice Director for Cloud & Services at BlueMetal, Inc. provides software developers, architects and operations engineers’ practical guidance and impactful reference implementations that demonstrate how to leverage Automation and a Microservice Architecture to deliver SaaS applications. SaaS applications are software products that are available 24×7, work on any device, are always up to date, scale elastically and are resilient to change. This book will demonstrates how a combination of Azure, Microservice Architecture and Automation provide the key to achieving continuous delivery and the promise of Software-as-a-Service.

A working definition of Microservices will be presented and the approach will be contrasted with traditional Monolithic Layered Architecture. You will learn how Microsoft Azure provides foundational Microservices for Storage, Compute, Messaging, App Containers, API Management and more and learn how to leverage those services in the creation of your own Microservice catalog. The Home Biomedical Reference Implementation will be used to demonstrate these capabilities for traditional line of business services as well as Connected Device scenarios for Internet of Things. Finally we will look to the future, to where Azure is headed, to see how Microservices are becoming the De facto approach to building in the cloud.

What You Will Learn:

  • What are Microservices and why are they a compelling architecture pattern for SaaS applications
  • How to design, develop and deploy Microservices using Visual Studio, PowerShell and Azure
  • Microservice patterns for traditional line of business solutions
  • Microservice patterns for Internet of Things and Big Data Analytics solutions
  • Techniques for automating Microservice provisioning, build and deployment
  • What is Service Fabric and how that is the future direction for Microservices on the Microsoft Azure
Chapters
  1. From Monolithic to Microservice
  2. What is a Microservice?
  3. Microservice Architecture
  4. Azure – A Microservice Platform
  5. Automation
  6. Microservice Reference Implementation
  7. IoT and Microservices
  8. Service Fabric

The Reference Implementation will provide PowerShell scripts to automate the Provisioning, Build, Deployment and De-Provisioning of the solution. The Solution consists of several independent Microservices built using C# and ASP.NET Web API along with DocumentDb and Redis. In addition there is an IoT component of the solution that is built using Azure IoT Suite, Cloud Services and SQL Database. There is a sample real-time data visualization client that demonstrates how to orchestrate the Microservices into a complete solution.

Viewed in whole, the Reference Implementation demonstrates how to use several Azure PaaS Services together along with custom code and automation scripts to create a modern Software-as-a-Service solution.

One observation on “Book: Microservices, IoT and Azure

    Hi Bob,

    I am doing few talks this October in the area of Azure microservices.

    I was wondering do you have early preview access list so I can review the book and the available reference implementation.
    In return I will refer to your book in my presentations and blog posts.

    Would this be possible?

    Thank you,
    Martin Kulov
