Designing Distributed Systems - Labs
Labs for Designing Distributed Systems
The samples in this lab are written with the reader of this book in mind: https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/resources/designing-distributed-systems/en-us/ and will guide you through the steps in designing and deploying distributed systems in Microsoft Azure.
1.1. Single Node Pattern: Ambassador
In this lab we'll guide you through the steps to implement the Ambassador pattern with NGINX in Kubernetes by deploying a request splitting service that will split 10% of the incoming HTTP requests to an experimental server. This request splitting service can then be used in a scenario where you want to test a new version of a back-end service with only a subset of the requests.
Go to lab: 1.1. Request Splitter
1.2. Single Node Pattern: Circuit Breaker Pattern
In this lab we'll guide you through the steps to implement the Ambassador pattern as a Circuit Breaker with NGINX Plus and Kubernetes. The Circuit Breaker patterns is extremely useful in scenarios where you want to help failing back-end servers to recover from failure, re-route traffic and perform rate limiting.

2.1. Serving Pattern: Load Balancing Server
In this lab we'll guide you through the steps to deploy a replicated load balancing service that will process requests for the definition of English words. The requests will be processed by a few small replicated NodeJS servers that you will deploy in Kubernetes using a pre-existing Docker image.
Go to lab: 2.1. Replicated Load Balanced Services
2.2. Serving Pattern: Decorator Function
In this lab you will apply the Decorator Pattern to implement a function in Kubeless that adds default values and performs transformations to the input of an HTTP RESTful API.

3. Batch Computation Pattern
In this lab you will apply the Copier, Filter, Splitter and Join patterns to implement a fully functional containerized and batch-processing thumbnail generator in Kubernetes that uses a pre-generated Docker image of the popular FFMPEG media conversion tool.
