Why Saffron Edge for MSA Deployment on Azure?

  • Experience

We have helped many retailers with the successful deployment of Retail Tech MSA Azure and our deployments have helped our clients to fuel their growth while keeping things simple and manageable.

  • Customized

When it comes to deployment of Retail Tech MSA Azure, we never use the one-size-fits-all approach since we know the need of every retailer is different and therefore, our team first analyzes the needs, then builds a blueprint and roadmap, and finally starts working on implementation.

  • World-class Team

We have a dedicated MSA team that comprises Azure experts and other experienced professionals with proper certification and more than 4 years of experience in their respective fields. This is how we maintain the quality of our service.

  • Complete Solution

After choosing Saffron Edge, you don’t have to scour the internet for anyone else as we offer a complete solution. Right from analysis and development to testing and maintenance, we have got it all covered under our Retail Tech MSA Azure service.

What Are the 3 Managed Services used for MSA Deployment On Azure?

  • Service Fabric

It can run on both on-premise by using Microsoft Windows Server or Azure. With Service Fabric, you get highly flexible deployment, infrastructure APIs, and service life cycle management. It also involves just a four-step migration to MSA which is quite easy.

  • Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS)

When it comes to deployment of MSA in containers on Azure then the most obvious choice is AKS as it manages and deploys Docker container clusters. Also, the Azure Storage services offer reliable and persistent storage outside the cluster of Kubernetes.

  • Azure Functions

In the case of a serverless approach to microservices, one needs to use Azure Functions. The serverless function is driven by events in real-time rather than the entire container and the best part is Azure Function is going to bill you only during the actual runtime.

How MSA can be Built on Azure?

Here Is A Four-step Process Involved In The Implementation of Retail Tech MSA Azure

Domain Analysis

It is crucial to set the responsibilities and roles of every subsystem in the MSA structure. Also, you have to ensure that there are no tight couplings between any of the services and there should be no dependence of the services on each other as well.

Selecting An Azure Compute Option

In the case of MSA, you usually get three compute options and there is nothing like the best of them as all of them have their own pros and cons. The three compute options are; Function-as-a-Service, Container Orchestrator, Service Orchestrator.

Building APIs for MSA

Some of the most common considerations while building APIs are

  • RPC vs REST
  • API getaway
  • Languages
  • API’s formal definition

Choosing A Design Pattern for MSA

Some of the most common design patterns for MSA in Azure are;

  • Facade Layer
  • Backend for frontend
  • Ambassador
  • Strangler
  • Sidecar
  • Bulkhead

What Does API Management do for MSA?

The API management of Azure gives you a wide variety of services related to performance and security.

In the case of MSA, it offers independent development to select technology. This allows the developers to work on different MSAs at the same time and select the right technology for the issue they are dealing with.

Also, the availability of independent deployment allows the MSA to update without being dependent on each other. This allows an individual update of every service of MSA.

frequently asked questions

On one side, MSA allows developers to break down the application into separate components, and on the other side, Azure offers all the tools, features, flexibility, and speed necessary for successful MSA implementation.

The API gateway draws all the API calls from the clients and then it successfully routes them to specific MSAs by using different processes like request routing, composition, and even protocol translation.

The benefits of MSA can be amplified by using applications that are built-in cloud with a long list of managed services. This makes it easy for the developers to materialize the microservice promises.

  • Dependency of operations
  • High cost of hosting
  • Scaling issues
  • Managing services integration

The main building blocks of Retail Tech MSA Azure are Entry points, API Gateway, Async queen, Backend service, Workflow orchestrator, and many more.
