Azure Notebooks is a service that provides users with a Jupyter server and persisted content that they can explore and share. As of now, the service hosts around 17,000 users and about 3,500 monthly active users. It is designed to scale and regularly hosts 500–1,000 users simultaneously. Christopher Wilcox explains how Azure Notebooks does this daily and discusses the challenges faced in designing and building a scalable Jupyter service.
