Trying to understand Load Balancing in Azure.

0 votes
I just want to understand how does Azure perform load balancing - all the information in documentation is quite unclear to me. Like -

Many applications use sessions or in-memory data to increase performance. With Azure, I'm not sure if this is possible, because (from what I can tell), Azure doesn't have any sort of "sticky" sessions. Even if it wasn't session-based, but simply IP-based balancing, that would be enough for many applications.

Please explain.

For your clarification - Azure DOES support load balancing in front of both web and worker roles, but it does not support Affinity Load Balancing. While the load balancing used to be round robin, Microsoft have since changed the way they do the load balancing as described in this blog: http://azure.microsoft.com/blog/2014/04/08/microsoft-azure-load-balancing-services/

Hope this helps :)
