Service Fabric

Official Documentation

Service Description

The Service Fabric is the latest member in the Compute Services family. Apps written for the Service Fabric differ from Apps in other compute modes in terms of structure and deployment. With Service Fabric, applications can be made up of microservices that can be installed dynamically and distributed to a pool of provisioned virtual machines. The instances of a microservice can share the resources with other microservices, i.e., more than one microservice instance can be executed on a virtual machine. An advantage over the other execution options is the significantly more flexible resource allocation and better utilization of the machines. Applications can scale more flexibly, specifically at the microservice level. Individual functions can be packaged into microservices and then scaled very individually (if, e.g., a load peak occurs only in a certain application function). However, applications have to be written very specifically for the Azure Service Fabric.
