Failure is not an option : design for failure

we live in times where may of us are cloud building, sometimes even just cloud moving. This session will handle design for failure from an azure perspective in regards to architecture on a solution level and certain patterns. This session is not on microservices design (although it can be part of it) but rather on aspects of resilience, scalability, health and high availability.

we'll see how you can leverage some services in the Azure platform to help you , but also some reference architectures and best practices (+ tips on how to improve after the facts)
