Most recently, I've rewritten the whole application code for this website with many features added. Refer to the following page for more details:

Kontext Pre-release v0.6.0

From release v0.6.1, Kontext platform is fully server-less and cloud native with horizontal scalabilities. 

Architecture

The following diagram shows the latest architecture of this website platform. 


* Analytics part is not implemented yet since there is no enough data. 

Technical details

  • For hosting web APIs and web pages, Azure App Services are used. The server-less product can scale up or down automatically.
  • Website data is stored in relational database Azure SQL database (with elastic pool).
  • User uploaded files like images are stored in Azure Blob Storage. Another layer of API is implemented in the application to control access.
  • Events information are stored in Event Hubs that can be processed by Azure Functions or other services.
  • Azure Data Factory can be used to ingest data into storage like Azure Blob Storage or SQL Data Warehouse or any other suitable storage.
  • Analytics tools/frameworks like Hadoop and Databricks can be used to perform all sort of analytics.
  • Data can then be visualised through Power BI. Useful insights from analytical jobs can be published to Azure SQL database to expose to users in the websites. 
  • Third parties frameworks are used for marketing, website analytics and advertisement.
