TNWiki Article Spotlight – Azure Networking: Learn About Load-Balancers


Dear All,

Welcome to the TechNet Wiki Tuesday – TNWiki Article Spotlight.

We are heading to Summer , in this hot season i would like to share with you all an very hot and awesome article Azure Networking: Learn About Load-Balancers by  George Chrysovaladis Grammatikos

The main reason why i select this article as this article deeply explains about  Azure Networking and Load Balancers ,Microsoft states Azure Load Balancer as

With Azure Load Balancer, you can scale your applications and create high availability for your services. Load Balancer supports inbound and outbound scenarios, provides low latency and high throughput, and scales up to millions of flows for all TCP and UDP applications.
Azure Load Balancer is available in two SKUs: Basic and Standard. There are differences in scale, features, and pricing
You can use Azure Load Balancer to:

  • Load-balance incoming internet traffic to your VMs. This configuration is known as a Public Load Balancer.
  • Load-balance traffic across VMs inside a virtual network. You can also reach a Load Balancer front end from an on-premises network in a hybrid scenario. Both scenarios use a configuration that is known as an Internal Load Balancer.
  • Port forward traffic to a specific port on specific VMs with inbound network address translation (NAT) rules.
  • Provide outbound connectivity for VMs inside your virtual network by using a public Load Balancer.
