This 300 pages guide presents a structured approach for designing cloud applications that are scalable, resilient, and highly available. The guidance in this e-book is intended to help your architectural decisions regardless of your cloud platform, though we will be using Azure so we can share the best practices that we have learned from many years of customer engagements.
In the following chapters, we will guide you through a selection of important considerations and resources to help determine the best approach for your cloud application:

  1. Choosing the right architecture style for your application based on the kind of solution you are building.
  2. Choosing the most appropriate compute and data store technologies.
  3. Incorporating the ten high-level design principles to ensure your application is scalable, resilient, and manageable.
  4. Utilizing the five pillars of software quality to build a successful cloud application.
  5. Applying design patterns specific to the problem you are trying to solve

#Microsoft #Azure Application Analytics for #Docker #Container Apps #DevOps #Cloud #MSOMS


Microsoft Azure Application Analytics for Docker Container Apps

Docker Pull Microsoft/applicationinsights

How to use this Image

  1. Obtain the instrumentation key of your Application Insights resource. (Look in the Essentials drop-down.) If you don’t have a resource, create a new one.
  2. Run the following command, replacing %app_ikey% with your instrumentation key:
    docker run -v /var/run/docker.sock:/docker.sock -d microsoft/applicationinsights ikey=%app_ikey%
  3. If your application is instrumented with the Application Insights SDK for Java, add the following line into the ApplicationInsights.xml file in your project, under the <TelemetryInitializers> element:<Add type=”com.microsoft.applicationinsights.extensibility.initializer.docker.DockerContextInitializer”/>

Note: Only a single container is required per Docker host. If your application is deployed on multiple Docker hosts, then create an instance of this image on every host.

Here you find more information on Docker HUB

Docker images

In Microsoft Azure you Create a New Application Insights environment :

Here you find  more information about to Create an Application Insights resource

I have added my Docker for Windows Containers to Azure Application Insights :

Monitor Docker applications in Application Insights

Here you See my two Running Docker for Windows Containers

You can change the Timelines for a better View

You can open Analytics and make your own queries on your Container App

Enjoy #Analytics  😉

RUN you Own #Azure DevTest Labs in the Cloud #DevOps #Science #Linux #Containers

James TestLAB

Azure DevTest Labs is a service that helps developers and testers quickly create environments in Azure while minimizing waste and controlling cost. You can test the latest version of your application by quickly provisioning Windows and Linux environments using reusable templates and artifacts. Easily integrate your deployment pipeline with DevTest Labs to provision on-demand environments. Scale up your load testing by provisioning multiple test agents, and create pre-provisioned environments for training and demos.

Get started with Microsoft Azure DevTest Labs here

It’s really easy to setup your first Azure DevTest LAB.

Just click Create.

If you click on Automation options, you can create your own json file for Automation.
