When it comes to moving applications from on-premises environments to Azure or to building new applications on Azure, it’s important that you have a process for achieving resilience using a structured approach throughout the lifetime of your application—from design and implementation to deployment and operations.
Resilience is defined as a system’s ability to recover from failures and continue to function. Resilience is not only about avoiding failures but also involves responding to failures in a way that minimizes downtime or data loss. Because failures can occur at various levels, it’s important to have protection for all types based on your application availability requirements.1
But how do you this? What do you need to consider when designing resilient IaaS (infrastructure as a service) applications on Azure? What strategies should you implement to prevent or respond to various types of failures, such as hardware failures, data center failures, regional failures, application deployment failures, and more? How do you test your failures and response strategies? How do you monitor to detect failures and get insights into the cause(s) of the failure? And most importantly, what are the recommended best practices for designing and deploying resilient applications on Azure?
All of these questions are answered in Microsoft’s newest white paper entitled “Resilience in Microsoft Azure: Designing Resilient Infrastructure as a Service Applications on Azure“. This white paper provides guidance on designing resilient applications on Azure and provides sample application design patterns for varied levels of resilience.2
