- Implement a high-availability solution with Azure SQL Database.
Designing Cloud Applications for Resiliency
As a developer, you should keep in mind certain considerations while designing applications for the cloud. Although there are many platform improvements available in the ASP.NET ecosystem, you need to rethink the way you design your applications, and the patterns that are used, with respect to the scalability and reliability metrics present for the cloud applications.
- Lesson 1: Application Design Practices for Highly Available Applications, discusses some of the considerations that are needed when you design applications that are hosted in the cloud such that they result in minimal downtime.

- Build High Performance ASP.NET Web Applications
Storing Tabular Data in Azure
Dynamic web applications will invariably need to store the data that is being managed and manipulated by users. ASP.NET has always relied on technologies like ADO.NET and Entity Framework to access data from Microsoft SQL Server. For the cloud, the Microsoft Azure platform provides a SQL as a Service that allows developers to use SQL data and queries in the same manner as they would use in an on-premises implementation.
- Lesson 1: What Is Azure SQL Database, defines the Microsoft Azure SQL Database service in Azure and the reasons for using it.
