A single Azure function is all it took to fully implement an end-to-end, real-time, mission critical data pipeline. And it was done with a serverless architecture. Serverless architectures simplify the building, deployment, and management of cloud scale applications.
Today, we’re very pleased to announce the general availability of Azure Functions 2.0! This is a huge milestone packed with several capabilities, all focused around making it easier than ever for you to build highly scalable serverless applications.
Since we announced general availability of Azure Event Grid, we have seen great adoption and received good feedback on what else you want to do with your event-driven architectures. Today we are...
Serverless technologies have hit a high level of maturity and awareness where several new customers from a diverse range of industries and geographies, are confidently going to production with it...
As more and more serverless applications are developed, events are now the glue connecting all aspects of modern applications. These events can originate from microservices...
Are you now ready to dig into what you can actually do with real code using serverless computing cloud services like Azure Functions? If so, you should download and read the free Azure Serverless Computing Cookbook that describes with rich code examples and how to solve common problems using serverless Azure Functions.
Every second counts when an attack has been detected. We have heard from you that you need to be able to quickly take action against detected threats. At Ignite 2017, we announced Azure Security Center Playbooks, which allow you to control how you want to respond to threats detected by Security Center.
“Cold start” is a large discussion point for serverless architectures and is a point of ambiguity for many users of Azure Functions. The goal of this post is to help you understand what cold start is, why it happens, and how you can architect your solutions around it.
Wouldn’t it be nice to have IoT Hub just automatically scale up to a higher capacity when a certain threshold of messages is met, before your chosen limit is reached? While at this point, IoT Hub does not have this capability built into the service, we have published a sample solution for monitoring and automatically scaling your IoT Hub based on reaching a specific threshold of messages.
Serverless provides a great model for accelerating app development, but developers want to do it using the programming languages and development tools of their choice. Ever since we first released…
