 ?What is it

The traffic manager is a great feature that provides global load balancing features between endpoints on a different cloud services

The traffic Manager provides 3 different methods of distributing internet traffic between two or more cloud services, all accessible with the same URL (Which the traffic manager will provide you), in one or more Windows Azure datacenters (that you already choose once created the cloud services)

?How does it work

You basically creating a traffic manager  (you can find it inside the azure management portal menu) and then you can choose your cloud service ( then you can choose even a specific virtual machine), then you shall have a new URL for your service that you will need to use in order to use the traffic manager features

:There are 3 load balancing methods which you can define according to your own needs, these are the methods

Performance – the performance method give you the ability to configure your Traffic Manager in a way that if a client will perform an http/https request from his browser the endpoint which located closer to him (Network Lowest Latency) will be answer to the client specific request

 1

Round Robin – the round robin method give you the ability to configure your Traffic Manager in a way that the endpoints will receive request equally, what does it mean? It means that if a client will send an http/https request (to the URL which the traffic manager created) so the traffic manager will automatically redirect the client to endpoint A and then when the client will send another request he will automatically will send his request to end point B

2

Failover – the failover method give you the ability to configure your Traffic Manager in a way that if there is a primary endpoint that always be up and will always get the client http/https requests will have a backup endpoint in case that something went wrong with the primary endpoint
