Application Security Testing: An Integral Part of DevOps


Microsoft is already making announcements as their big conferences approach. For example, today they announced Azure Service Fabric. Mark Russinovich (CTO, Microsoft Azure) describes Azure Service Fabric as:

"a platform that intrinsically understands the available infrastructure resources and needs of applications, enabling automatically updating, self-healing behavior that is essential to delivering highly available and durable services at hyper-scale."

A developer preview of Azure Service Fabric will be released at Microsoft Build next week in San Francisco. The service is also expected to be released as a part of the next version of Windows Server, thus making it available as an on-premise solution as well.

Using Azure Service Fabric, developers will be able to build highly scalable cloud services that they can customize. In fact, this is the same platform that Microsoft has been using for a variety of their own products and services including Skype for Business, Azure SQL Database, and Bing Cortana. You'll be able to use it to get some of the same benefits that Microsoft has gotten including:

  • Orchestration and automation for microservices.
  • Stateless and stateful support for microservices
  • Support for complex, low-latency, data-intensive microservices
  • ALM support to help scaling

While Azure Service Fabric will initially support Windows, Microsoft is also expecting to support Linux as well. For more on microservices, check out our Developer.com article, Building Microservices with Open Source Technologies. While this article is not on Service Fabric, it will help you understand microservices better.

There will also be support for Service Fabric through Visual Studio as well as command line support.

Microsoft simply announced Azure Service Fabric today. To get the gooey details, look for more information coming from Microsoft Build next week (April 29th to May 1st).
