Microsoft today announced Azure Service Fabric, a new Azure service that aims to make it easier for developers at startups and ISVs to create highly scalable cloud applications.
The idea is to give developers the tools necessary to build cloud apps without ever having to worry about scaling and having to rearchitect their infrastructure to keep up with growth.
To do so, Service Fabric combines microservices with the company’s expertise in orchestrating and automating them across distributed systems. Service Fabric will also offer Visual Studio and command-line tooling and application lifecycle management support.
As Microsoft’s general manager for cloud platform marketing Mike Schutz tells me, Service Fabric is essentially a next-gen Platform-as-a-Service technology that makes use of Microsoft’s experience with building hyper-scale technology for its own services like AzureDB, DocumentDB and Cortana. Indeed, Microsoft says Service Fabric is exactly the same technology it uses in-house to build and run these services.
