We are pleased to announce the release of "Refactor an Azure Service Fabric Application migrated from Azure Cloud Services", the second article in a series about migrating an existing application from Azure Cloud Services to Service Fabric. The focus of the first article in the series was performing a direct port of the application making only the changes necessary to get the Cloud Service application running in Service Fabric. This newly released second article focuses on refactoring the ported application to a more granular service architecture to take advantage of Service Fabric benefits such as easier application management, service versioning, and independent service scaling to respond to changes in load.

Azure Search service upgrades: New hardware, unlimited document counts, and more!
Starting in late 2017, all new paid Azure Search services started using brand new, more powerful underlying hardware in select regions. The upgraded search services offer significantly higher performance and remove document count limits, at no additional cost…
Now using SSD's instead of HDDs under the hood.  Removed document counts from basic and standard tiers, so now it's just storage capacity limits that are enforced.  Should result in faster indexing and query performance for the same price.  Limits in terms of number of indexes has gone up from 5 to 15 in Basic, and one of the limits of 200 million documents per partition on Standard 3 High Density pricing tier has been removed.  (Limits per index still exist).
