Azure Traffic Manage Features and Reviews

Azure Traffic Manager Load Balancing Software enables users to have complete control over the distribution of user traffic for service endpoints in multiple datacenters.

Overview

Azure Traffic Manager Load Balancing Software is a DNS-based load balancer that allows users to optimally distribute and route traffic to services across global regions while offering high responsiveness and availability. Users can use this software to increase the responsiveness of their applications by utilizing performance routing. Plus, Azure Traffic Manager Load Balancing Software enables users to combine cloud systems and on-premises systems seamlessly, and they can use traffic patterns and volumes to get actionable insights. 

This software uses DNS to manage client requests to the best service endpoint based on the endpoint health and the traffic-routing method. Azure Traffic Manager Load Balancing Software offers users a suite of wholly managed load-balancing solutions for their different scenarios, and it provides a range of endpoint monitoring options to suit various automatic failover models and application needs. Besides, this software offers users different types of DNS-based traffic routing to enable them to choose the right one or combine them using nested profiles.

Azure Traffic Manager Load Balancing Software helps users to reduce downtime on their critical applications by monitoring their external websites and services and automatically directing them to the next best location in case of failure. Users can use this software to run cloud services or websites in global datacenter locations. This software enables users to perform service maintenance operations on their applications without downtime. Also, the Azure Traffic Manager Load Balancing software can manage traffic to alternative endpoints while maintenance is in progress. 

This software supports external and non-Azure endpoints, which allows users to perform hybrid cloud and on-premises deployments. Users can combine multiple traffic-routing methods to generate flexible and sophisticated rules to scale to more complex deployment needs. Azure Traffic Manager Load Balancing Software helps users to direct and distribute their customer traffic across different locations like multiple Azure web apps or cloud services.

Product Details

Azure Traffic Manager Load Balancing Software uses the geographic routing method to help users with their geofencing needs. Users can use this software to upgrade and perform maintenance on their on-site datacenter without inconveniencing their customers. This software provides users with Geographic routing functionalities to ensure adherence and content localization to data sovereignty regulations. Applying geofencing enables routing of users connecting from different geographic regions to specific endpoints. Plus, the Azure Traffic Manager Load Balancing software allows users to get actionable insights on their customers as they can see where they are connecting from and their digital experience quality.

Azure Traffic Manager Load Balancing Software allows users to control the distribution of network traffic to application deployments running in multiple data centers. Users can use this software to configure each application deployment as an endpoint. When the software receives a DNS request, it picks the available destination to return in the DNS response. Besides, the Azure Traffic Manager Load Balancing Software uses the status of the current endpoint and the method of traffic-routing to make its choice. 

Azure Traffic Manager Load Balancing software allows users to combine different endpoints ina a single profile. This software supports different Azure resource types like Web Apps, PaaS cloud services, PublicIPAdress resources, and Web App Slots. Users can use this software to detect when a Web App stops and starts as it reflects status. Azure Traffic Manager Load Balancing software does not perform health checks to the endpoint when the service ends. Users can use external locations for IPv4/IPv6 addresses, FQDNs, and services outside of Azure. Additionally, users can enable and disable endpoints using the REST API, CLI, PowerShell, and Traffic manager portal.

Azure Traffic Manager Load Balancing Software enables users to control how the software chooses which endpoint should receive traffic from each end-user. This software allows users to nest the different profiles to combine the benefits of multiple traffic-routing methods. With the nested patterns, users can override the behavior of the default Traffic Manager to support more complex application deployments. Also, the Azure Traffic Manager Load Balancing software does not have any restrictions on how users combine endpoints of multiple types within a profile.

Azure Traffic Manager Load Balancing Software supports different traffic-routing methods to determine how to route network traffic to multiple service endpoints. This software applies the traffic-routing approach associated with any profile when it receives a DNS query. All the Traffic Manager profiles on this software offer automatic endpoint failover and endpoint-health monitoring, and users can choose a different traffic routing method for their profile at any time. Plus, Azure Traffic Manager Load Balancing Software allows flexible and sophisticated traffic-routing configuration to meet the needs of complex applications.

Azure Traffic Manager Load Balancing Software offers users an in-built automatic endpoint failover and endpoint monitoring. This software allows users to deliver high-availability applications that are resilient to endpoint failure like Azure region failures. Users must specify the protocol, port, path, custom header settings, probing interval, tolerated number of failures, and probe timeout when configuring endpoint monitoring. Azure Traffic Manager Load Balancing Software enables users to enable or disable specific profiles and endpoints. Besides, the software helps users to monitor the status of their parameters with ease.

Azure Traffic Manager Load Balancing Software enables organizations to implement failover patterns to offer reliability for their services. This software allows users to deploy endpoints in different locations across the globe to improve the responsiveness of applications by directing traffic to areas close to them. Additionally, Azure Traffic Manager Load Balancing software receives DNS queries from the recursive DNS service that users use.

Recap

Azure Traffic Manager Load Balancing Software allows users to distribute traffic optimally to different services across global Azure regions. This cloud-based load balancing service enables users to control the distribution of user traffic, and it allows them to increase the responsiveness of their app by leveraging performance routing. With this software, users can get actionable insights on the volumes and patterns of their end-user traffic, and they can combine cloud systems and on-premises systems seamlessly.
