In a previous post you learned how to take a fresh application and deploy it to a Kubernetes cluster. While it’s great to start with a new application, most of us don’t get that luxury. Usually, you’re going to start off with something older and have to refactor and then migrate it.
This tutorial will show you how to take an existing application, refactor it using cloud-native principles, and deploy it to Azure Kubernetes Services. By the time you’re done, you will know how to move your own applications to the cloud.
Cloud Migration Patterns
When migrating applications to the cloud, there are a handful of different patterns you can follow. Which pattern you choose will depend on what you are trying to migrate and how much time you want to spend migrating them. Each of these patterns has different tradeoffs, so it’s good to understand them all when looking …
As developers, we mostly focus on building applications. However, building the app is only half the story. To consider things “done,” we need to get that app deployed into the wild where people can use it. In the .NET world, there’s no shortage of ways we can host our apps, but today, I’d like to focus on building cloud native .NET applications.
In this post, you’ll learn about building cloud native applications in ASP.NET Core. You’ll learn how to design for the cloud, spin up an Azure Kubernetes Service instance, and deploy your application into the cloud. By the end of this post, you’ll have the tools to build and deploy your own cloud native ASP.NET applications.
What do you mean by “cloud native”?
“Cloud native” is one of those terms that sounds obvious, but there’s a more specific definition.
The Cloud Native Computing Foundation defines the term as follows: …
