Scaling Azure Functions with Durable Functions

Serverless compute is the latest advancement in Platform as a Service (PaaS) capabilities in the cloud. Azure Functions is the Serverless Compute service options available within the Microsoft Azure cloud platform. At it’s most basic, it lets you deploy a single method of code and run it in the cloud without the need to manage a VM, updates/patches, or even the application that hosts the method of code. In fact, within all the amazing abstraction is the bindings that hook up function triggers, data inputs, and data outputs to various services declaratively. All this functionality is really amazing, but there is room to improve the scalability of using Azure Functions and Serverless compute to build out full software solutions that contain more than just simple, isolated code methods. This article walks through the capabilities offered to Azure Functions with the featured called Durable Functions; aka the integration of the Durable Task Framework with Azure Functions. Read More
