Solution architecture: Dev-Test deployment for testing microservice solutions

This architecture represents how to configure your infrastructure for development and testing of a microservices-based system.

This solution is built on the Azure managed services: Visual Studio Team Services, Service Fabric and SQL Database. These services run in a high-availability environment, patched and supported, allowing you to focus on your solution instead of the environment they run in.

Implementation guidance

Products Documentation

Visual Studio Team Services

Visual Studio Team Services manage the development process.

Microsoft Release Management

The Microsoft Release Management build and release agents deploy the Azure Resource Manager template and associated code to the various environments.

Visual Studio Team Services resource groups

Visual Studio Team Services resource groups are used to define all the services required to deploy the solution into a dev-test or production environment.

Service Fabric

Service Fabric orchestrates all of the microservices used in the solution. In development, code is deployed directly from the development tools, while in test and production environments the code is deployed through the build and release agent using Resource Manager templates.

SQL Database

Azure SQL Database maintains data for the website. Copies are deployed in the dev, test and production environments.
