Designing for Scalability

Here's a white paper I authored and published while at Microsoft in 2000 titled "Architectural Design: A Scalable, Highly Available Business Object Architecture." The paper has since been dropped from TechNet, but it embodies the essential guidance for availability and scalability derived from integration testing with the Barnes & Noble order processing system. This paper is referenced by nine technical articles and two patents (6542902 and 7114158). It is here as archival information. The paper can also be found in archive.org

2019 update: The scalable workflow architecture described in the white paper predates what we now call a microservices architecture.
