How often do you think about the configuration of your applications across environments/regions/deployment boundaries? What if that configuration was stored somewhere externally but centralised, to make management easier? That’s the idea behind the external config pattern! How about another scenario - What about those times where you’ve wanted to use a messaging service, but your payload is too big? Thought about externalising that payload too? Well, that’s the Claim-check pattern! Join Peter and Chris as they talk about both of these patterns in this episode of Cloud with Chris!

Do you have an application with some specific requirements around scalability, and continuity of service? What happens if your service is hit by heavy load? Could performance/reliability issues cause an impact to your solution? This is where both the queue-based load levelling and competing consumers patterns shine. Tune in and listen to Chris speak with Will Eastbury as they discuss both of these patterns. This is another episode in the series of Architecting for the Cloud, one pattern at a time.
