Azure Application Gateway features and reviews of 2020

Azure Application Gateway Load Balancing software allows users to develop a highly-available, secure, and scalable web front end in Azure.

Overview

Azure Application Gateway Load Balancing software offers users load balancing and application-level routing solutions used to manage traffic to their web applications. This web traffic load balancer helps users to use Azure to build an available, scalable, and secure web front-end. Users can use this software to protect their applications from web vulnerabilities like cross-site scripting and SQL injections. Plus, users can use custom rules and rule groups that eliminate false positives and fit their requirements to monitor their web applications. 

This software allows users to automatical scale Application Gateway instances based on the traffic load of their web application. Users can integrate Azure Application Gateway Load Balancing software seamlessly with other Azure services, and it supports automatic failover, zero-downtime maintenance, and multiple-region redirection. Organizations can use this software to respond rapidly to changing traffic on their websites and withstand large peak loads.

Azure Application Gateway Load Balancing software allows users to deliver high network performance and availability to their applications. This software enables users to use virtual machine sets, the Web Apps feature of Azure App Service, and Azure Virtual Machines in their backend pools.  Besides, Azure Monito and Azure Security Center offer users centralized alerting and monitoring alongside an application health dashboard.

Azure Application Gateway Load Balancing software offers used end-to-end SSL encryption to help secure their data. Users can use this software to route traffic to multiple web applications with host header-based routing, and backend pools using URL path-based routing. Azure Application Gateway Load Balancing software provides users with SSL offload to scale their web applications, and centralized SSL certificate management to decrease decryption and encryption overhead on their servers. Additionally, users only pay for what they need with this software. 

Product Details

Azure Application Gateway Load Balancing software removes the need to provide different Application Gateways in each zones. This software can span multiple availability zones to offer better fault resiliency to users, and it exclusively supports static VIP type. With this software, users can ensure that the VIP associated with the application gateway does not change at all. Azure Application Gateway Load Balancing software can use gateway-managed cookies to direct subsequent traffic for processing from a session to the exact server. Besides, users can use this process in cases where they have saved the session state locally on the server for a user session.

Azure Application Gateway Load Balancing software supports SSL/TLS termination at the gateway, which allows traffic to flow unencrypted to the backend servers. This software unburdens web servers from costly encryption and decryption overhead. For applications that do not accept unencrypted communication because of compliance and security requirements, Azure Application Gateway Load Balancing software supports end-to-end SSL/TLS encryption. This software supports automatic scaling, and it can scale up or down depending on the changing traffic load patterns. Plus, users do not need to choose an instance count or deployment size during provisioning. 

Azure Application Gateway Load Balancing software offers users a Web Application Firewall that provides centralized protection for their web applications from vulnerabilities and exploits. This software helps users to protect their web apps from exploits like cross-site scripting attacks and SQL injection attacks. With the Web Application Firewall, the Azure Application Gateway Load Balancing software can react faster to security threats by patching known vulnerabilities at a central location. Additionally, users can convert existing application gateways to a Web Application Firewall enabled application gateway with ease.

Azure Application Gateway Load Balancing software enables users to use it as the ingress for an Azure Kubernetes Service cluster. Users can run the ingress controller as a pod within the AKS cluster and convert them to an Application Gateway configuration, which enables traffic load balancing to the Kubernetes pods. Azure Application Gateway Load Balancing software allows users to route traffic to backend server pools using URL Paths of the request.

Users can configure routing using host or domain name for multiple web applications on the same application gateway. Azure Application Gateway Load Balancing software allows users to add more than 100 websites to one app for the configuration of a useful topology for their deployments. Also, users can redirect each website to their backend pool, and they can host two subdomains of one parent domain on the same application gateway deployment.

Azure Application Gateway Load Balancing software helps users to redirect traffic to the application gateway. This software supports different redirection scenarios like global and path-based redirection, optimizes resource usage, and simplifies application configuration. The redirection support of this software is not limited to the HTTP to HTTPs redirection as users can redirect from and to any port that they define using rules. Plus, Azure Application Gateway Load Balancing software supports redirection to an external site.

Azure Application Gateway Load Balancing software offers native support fr HTTP/2 and WebSocket protocols. With the WebSocket and HTTP/2 protocols, users can enable full communication over a long-running TCP connection between the web server and the client. These protocols can reuse the same TCP connection for different requests because of their low overhead, which results in effective resource utilization. Besides, Azure Application Gateway Load Balancing software allows users to create custom error pages with their branding and layout.

Azure Application Gateway Load Balancing software enables users to remove backend pool members during planned service updates seamlessly. Users can use this software to rewrite HTTP headers to add security-related header filed, strip port information from headers, and remove the response header field that can reveal sensitive information. This software supports the ability to remove, add, and update HTTP requests and response headers. 

Recap

Azure Application Gateway Load Balancing software offers users load balancing and application routing solutions, which enables them to build a highly available and scalable web front end in Azure.  This software supports cookie-based session affinity, and it offers users a customizable layer-7 load-balancing solution. Azure Application Gateway Load Balancing software supports private, public, and hybrid websites.
