The Application

We previously built a simple node.js application that uses Azure SQL Database as data store. I will demonstrate how we can deploy that application to Service Fabric as a Guest Executable. However, none of the steps that I am going to follow are specific to node.js. You can select an application built using any other programming language e.g. Java and follow the same steps to deploy your application (with some changes depending on your application) as a Guest Executable on Service Fabric.

One thing to be cognizant of while selecting an application for the purpose is that your application should be stateless in nature because Guest Executables are deployed as stateless services, i.e. an instance of your application will run on every node in the Service Fabric cluster.

Bring Your Own Protocol (BYOP) to Your Azure Service Fabric Applications

Microsoft Azure Service Fabric: There are several reasons to switch to this brand new platform for building distributed systems. For one, Service Fabric can host itself literally anywhere: on your laptop, in your data center, in some else’s data center, on Windows, on Linux… If you are still hugging Cloud Services (that thing with web roles and worker roles), you better mend your acts early, it is getting phased out and will become obsolete soon.
