Proposed Talks

Scaling your .NET app with Azure

Submitted by Callum Whyte

Talk Abstract:

You've made it big time, and your web app just can't handle the traffic... Where do you even start with scaling in Azure?

This session will cover all there is to know about efficiently scaling an app on Azure; from scaling on App Service, to hosting in containers on AKS, and all the DevOps magic in between.

Lets start by exploring the auto-scaling options available in Azure App Service, using Application Insights to guide the thresholds we set and monitor how our app performs. We'll see the impact that external dependencies (database, storage) has on scaling, and smart ways to mitigate any challenges that arise.

As our scale grows, so will our costs... I'll share my tips for cost effective scaling, taking a look at the options Azure makes available at our fingertips – through containerized apps + AKS, and serverless products like Azure SQL Serverless.

Finally, I'll show how to configure a deployment pipeline in Azure DevOps that glues all of these solutions together.
