In this, and following posts I am going to take the existing build process I have and modify it so I can make use of VM Scale Sets to host my API solution. This switch is to allow the API to scale under load.
My current setup is very much fit for purpose for the limited trial it’s been used in, but I know (at minimum) I’ll see at least 150 times the traffic when I am running at full-scale in production, and while my trial environment barely scratches the surface in terms of consumed resources, I don’t want to have to capacity plan to the n-nth degree for production.
Shifting to VM Scale Sets with autoscale enabled will help me greatly in this respect!
