Solution architecture: Scalable Umbraco CMS web app

Medium Umbraco CMS web app configured to scale and optimal for high-traffic sites. It uses two web apps, one for your front-end app and the other for your back-office app, deployed in a single region with autoscaling enabled.

This solution is built on the Azure managed services: Azure SQL Database, Storage, Application Insights and Redis Cache. 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.

Products/Description Documentation

Web Apps

Run an Umbraco CMS on the Web Apps feature of Azure App Service with the front-end and back-office apps running on the same app.

Azure SQL Database

Store your site’s content in Azure SQL Database. The back-office web app and front-end web app use the same database. Use Azure SQL Database’s features such as backup and high availability.


Store all your media in Azure Storage, so you can reduce I/O operation on the web app file server and improve performance.

Application Insights

Detect issues, diagnose crashes, and track usage in your web app with Application Insights. Make informed decisions throughout the development lifecycle.

Redis Cache

Store session state and output cache on Azure Redis Cache to improve performance and reduce the load on your web front ends.
