      What are we thinking we will be able to do to help with scaling in Azure? I don't recall what we discussed during the session. 🤔

        I'm no expert on this, but scaling or Autoscale in Azure means that we might get into a kind of webfarm setting.
        So when Azure sees traffic/memory/processor load on the website is getting bigger, it might use autoscale.
        Meaning it makes a copy off the files and puts it on a different server (or more servers) so it can divide the traffic over multiple servers. And when the traffic decreases again Azure might scale back to a single server.
        So this will possibly cause issues if a user want's to upload a file to the server for example. Which would be uploaded to server A but will not be available on server B, C etc. And I also think it might causes issues with serverside cache, and perhaps on other levels as well...
        I believe ? Evoq has something built into it which might be helpfull for this.
        And there is also an Azure folder provide which might help with these situations....
