Rick Spencer joins Donovan to chat about deploying Bitnami Node.js High Availability with Azure Cosmos DB, a free listing in Azure Marketplace that uses ARM to automatically spin up a three-node Node.js cluster behind a load balancer with a shared file system and Azure Cosmos DB integration. See how you can quickly get a sample MEAN app from GitHub to a highly available production environment in the Azure cloud, with very little configuration or sysadmin knowledge required.For more information, see:Bitnami Node.js For Microsoft Azure Multi-Tier Solutions (docs)Bitnami Node.js High-Availability Cluster (Azure Marketplace)Bitnami sample MEAN application (GitHub)Create a Free Account (Azure)
Aravind Krishna stops by to chat with Scott Hanselman and take a look at common design patterns for building highly scalable solutions with Azure Cosmos DB. We will talk a little bit about modeling data and how to choose an appropriate partition key. We then look at a few patterns like event sourcing, time series data, and patterns for addressing bottlenecks/hot spots for reads, writes, and storage.For more information:Azure Cosmos DB (overview)Azure Cosmos DB (docs)Partition and scale in Azure Cosmos DBCreate a Free Account (Azure)
