Build Always-On, Hyper-Scalable Microservice-based Cloud Services

Microservices is an approach to application development in which every part of the application is deployed as a fully self-contained component that can be individually scaled and updated. With a good microservice architecture, customers can solve the management, deployment, orchestration, and patching needs of a container-based service, with reduced risk of availability loss while maintaining high agility.

Azure Search, Solr, Elastic Search

Search as a Service hosted on the cloud, made possible with Azure Search. Azure Search is one of the most complete feature, fully managed professional search mechanisms available on the market. Within a micro-session, examples will be given of how developers and companies can benefit from adding search within their application and also how does Azure ease the addition of search capabilities within applications (web/mobile etc.). Search is more than a simple text search, facets to dynamically categorize search results, fuzzy searches that would deal with situations where users have misspelled words, or text suggestions are all available on Azure Search. Finally a quick comparison on how does Azure Search compete with Lucene based Solr, one of the leading enterprise search platforms.
