To start of 2015 I am going to step up a level conceptually from the low-level Azure technologies and talk Cloud architecture patterns for the short term on the blog. As an Principal Cloud Solutions Architect we need look at a customer’s business requirements, use cases, and their desire to move to the cloud. From that we try to fit their new architecture into well-known, tried-and-true architectural patterns. I will present a basic knowledge of some of my favorite patterns to give your a good conversational understanding of those that are useful for cloud applications. It will not be an in-depth exhaustive study of each pattern. Rather, we will talk about the problem the pattern solves and how it works.

Stay tuned for the first pattern very soon!
