Designing applications in the cloud requires a different style of thinking, and deep knowledge of cloud infrastructure and services. In this course, Microsoft Azure for Node.js Developers - Cloud Patterns and Architecture, you'll learn how various Azure services can help build scalable and resilient applications. First, you'll explore how to use specific Azure resources to add redundancy, fail-over, and load balancing to a system. Next, you'll support scaling with partitioning and caching. Finally, you'll discover Content Delivery Networks, API management, and performance testing. When you're finished with this course, you'll have covered multiple resources that will help you as you build scalable Node applications in Microsoft Azure. This course is adapted from "Microsoft Azure for .NET Developers - Cloud Patterns and Architecture" by Scott Allen.
