A few useful Azure Resources

September 03, 2016 in #Azure #Cloud #Design Patterns | | | Share on Google+

Over the past few weeks, I have been working on some projects relating to Azure.

The usual theme has crept up, around recommended practices, and where to go for documentation. There are a couple of excellent resources to be aware of:

Azure Best Practice Checklists and Guidance

  • There are many best practice checklists available on the Azure.com website. Navigate to the Documentation Tab, and find the Best Practice subsection. You can get different lists, to use to assess your solution!

Azure Documentation Best Practices

Azure Cloud Design Practices Infographic

  • There is one useful infographic available, containing 24 recommended patterns and practices from the perspectives of availability, data management, design and implementation, messaging, management and monitoring, performance and scalability, resilience and security. I have an A3 laminated copy of this, and is a great lookup tool!

Search the Azure Article Documentation

  • If all else fails, you could always use the Azure.com documentation. But there is plenty of it! Did you know that you can navigate to https://azure.microsoft.com/en-gb/documentation/articles/, and search the information by various factors? For example, you can see below that I am looking for Best Practices relating to Azure Resource Manager (ARM) Templates.

Hope that these quick tips have been useful - Please let me know over Twitter if you think there are any other useful pieces to call out!
