About this book

Introduction

Use this collection of best practices and tips for assessing the health of a solution. This book provides detailed techniques and instructions to quickly diagnose aspects of your Azure cloud solutions.

The initial chapters of this book introduce you to the many facets of Microsoft Azure, explain why and how building for the cloud differs from on-premise development, and outline the need for a comprehensive strategy to debugging and profiling in Azure. You learn the major types of blades (FaaS, SaaS, PaaS, IaaS), how different views can be created for different scenarios, and you will become familiar with the Favorites section, Cost Management & Billing blade, support, and Cloud Shell. You also will know how to leverage Application Insights for application performance management, in order to achieve a seamless cloud development experience. Application Insights, Log Analytics, and database storage topics are covered. The authors further guide you on identity security with Azure AD and continuous delivery with CI and CD covered in detail along with the capabilities of Azure DevOps. And you are exposed to external tooling and trouble shooting in a production environment. 

After reading this book, you will be able to apply methods to key Azure services, including App Service (Web Apps, Function Apps, and Logic Apps), Cloud Services, Azure Container Service,  Azure Active Directory, Azure Storage, Azure SQL Database, Cosmos DB, Log Analytics, and many more.

You will:
  • Debug and manage the performance of your applications 
  • Leverage Application Insights for application performance management
  • Extend and automate CI/CD with the help of various build tools, including Azure DevOps,  TeamCity, and Cake bootstrapper
