onstwedder 2019 overview
Somewhere during the end of 2018, I decided to upgrade onstwedder.com. Instead of a new look - I wanted to update the backend.
My plan started out as changing the Azure SQL into Cosmos DB. But during that transformation, I also realized it would be a smart thing to implement Azure Search as well.
There was no real need to change - Sure, Cosmos DB would scale infinitely but it's not that I have a growing amount of Usenetfuns that would cause an issue, nor a zillion of new blogs. The major reason to change was to get a feel for these services.
The transformation to a NoSQL database also ment I would have to migrate the data from the existing AzureSQL. I used microsoft's import-data tool for this.
The usenetfun data was migrated, most old blogs were removed, leaving me to start with a near clean slate.
So here is the new setup of onstwedder.com:
- Azure WebApp + .Net Core 2.2
- Azure Storage
- Cosmos DB
- Azure Search
