Image optimization is an important aspect of ensuring good performance on your site. Often, images are uploaded without optimization in mind, which can cause large traffic loads to heavily impact performance and load times. An edge cache can be used to prevent the round trip call to the server, mitigating some of the impacts, but that may not adjust and optimize the actual size of the image being delivered. There are several tool out there that will optimize images by reducing the overall file size of those images. In my case, I decided to go with Dianoga, an automatic image optimizer that executes the first time an image is requested. It's a great choice, but unfortunately does not work for Azure App Services. This was an easy enough thing to resolve. Read on to find out how.


Website caching is one of the most beneficial technologies available. Learn how Azure CDN allows a Sitecore 9 application to serve media from a geo-located edge server.


With Sitcore 9 comes a whole new world in topology. Sitecore 9 marks a shift toward a microservice architecture, which affords new challenges and considerations in designing a Highly Available solution that can support Hyper-scale and load.


“Creating a martech solution for Cinépolis USA was the perfect answer to align their digital strategy and business goals,” shares Thomas Wagner, Director at XCentium.  “The XCentium team is excited to help our client realize their goals of creating a device independent, fast and responsive movie website that integrates with its enterprise backend with the ability to scale on demand while providing a superior user experience.” 


In a recent client project, I was asked to use Azure AD B2C to manage the user authentication and log on the user as a Sitecore visual user, which can lavage the personalized data populated in MongoDB.

 

Microsoft provides very good documents with sample code and there are lots of great blog posts on how to do this. While getting this thing to work, as always I learned some "gotcha moments" that I would like to share. Hopefully it will save you some time in your projects.
