Microservices Guidance Is Now Available

Microservices guidance is now available at  Azure Architecture Center

Microservices have become a popular architectural style for building cloud applications that are resilient, highly scalable, and able to evolve quickly. We explore how to model, build and operate a microservices architecture on Azure, using Kubernetes. Topics include:

  • Using Domain Driven Design (DDD) to design a microservices architecture.
  • Choosing the right Azure technologies for compute, storage, messaging, and other elements of the design.
  • Understanding microservices design patterns.
  • Designing for resiliency, scalability, and performance.
  • Building a CI/CD pipeline.

The following diagram illustrates the architecture of the reference implementation.


The goal of this guidance is to show an end to end process of modeling, building and operating microservices under a realistic scenario which is a drone delivery service that lets customers schedule packages to be picked up and delivered via drone. We hope you will find it useful in your own projects.
