  • Azure Monitor: Application Insights, provides health and performance monitoring, and diagnostics.
  • Content Delivery Network: A content delivery network serves static content such as images, script, and CSS, and reduces the load on the web app servers.
  • Azure Cache for Redis enables fast queries, and improves scalability by reducing the load on the main database.
