  1. A browser or mobile app makes requests for resources from the API.
  2. The requests are transmitted using HTTPS with TLS termination, which is handled by Azure App Services.
  3. Azure App Services handles API requests, and it can be scaled up or scaled out to handle the changing demand.
  4. Azure Database for PostgreSQL provides a relational database service that's based on the open-source Postgres database engine. Use Hyperscale (Citus) or Flexible Server (Preview) deployment modes for highly scalable databases.
