High Availability for your Applications with Traffic Manager in Azure

Logo_traffic-manager

Hello guys, Today I’m bringing you Traffic Manager, a great solution that enables traffic routing based on DNS, whether for failover, performance, geographic access or weighted round robin.

  • Priority: Prioritize an endpoint and the others are in standby according to the configured priority.
  • Weighted: When there is a need to distribute traffic among a set of endpoints, either uniformly or according to defined weights.
  • Performance: When you have endpoints in different regions and end users distributed in those regions, prioritizing each one’s connection according to the “closest” endpoint.
  • Geographic: Users will be directed to specific endpoints (Azure, External or Nested), based on originating DNS queries. Continue reading “High Availability for your Applications with Traffic Manager in Azure”

This idea is interesting (usually for testing purposes), when you want a server environment as if it were in the on-premisses environment, where there is a need to have host Hyper-V management.
