Azure started as a Platform as a Service with Cloud Services, but since it launched has evolved to include several newer and very useful options for compute. Depending on your hosting model and how you do DevOps, requirements for scalability and availability you have tradeoffs that affect your long-term costs and decision. In this session, we look at how containerization has altered the landscape and to go from a monolith mindset to microservices requires more than wishful thinking or a management edict. As the cloud advances, we need to understand the tradeoffs between compute options and make smart decisions on what makes the most sense to ensure you can get where you're going.

You will learn:

  • What's compelling about the new .NET framework
  • How containerization works
  • When and why to go to orchestration
