Abstract

IaaS provides complete control and flexibility over infrastructure on cloud while PaaS provides seamless scalability. PaaS can help scaling up and out automatically based on configured triggers. How good it would be to have a way to deploy virtual machines on cloud and manage it like PaaS by scaling in or out based on your own defined triggers. Virtual machine Scale Sets(VMSS) on Azure provides such a paradigm. VMSS allows to provision Linux or windows virtual machines as a set and manages them together. This provides massive scalability to applications while keeping the costs under check. In this session, we will understand the principles of VMSS, provision compute resources as a set, deploy and run application on them attached to load balancer. Moreover, it will show how to configure scaling up and down of compute resources using custom definitions. The VMSS compute resources will be provisioned and tested using scripts and templates that adheres to infrastructure as code practices. VMSS not only makes applications highly scalable but also highly available.

• Building a Scale Set using template (5 min)

• Load Balancing a Scale Set (10 min)

    This is a promising proposal but it packs a lot of material into a short time. I wonder if you could pick out one or two of your topics and spend more time on them. From your slide deck, the load balancing and auto-scale sections are likely the most interesting. I’m not sure if you really need to spend ten minutes on explaining how to write and deploy a template. That time could be better spent drilling into more exciting features.

    Thanks for the feedback.. I just uploaded the video as welL. I will spend 5 minutes on template and more time to scale out and in concepts.
