Azure Load balancer

Important Terms:

Azure load balancer overview Load balancing provides a higher level of availability by spreading incoming requests across multiple virtual machines. An Azure load balancer is a Layer-4 (TCP, UDP) load balancer that provides high availability by distributing incoming traffic among healthy VMs. A load balancer health probe monitors a given port on each VM and only distributes traffic to an operational VM. You define a front-end IP configuration that contains one or more public IP addresses. This front-end IP configuration allows your load balancer and applications to be accessible over the Internet. Virtual machines connect to a load balancer using their virtual network interface card (NIC). To distribute traffic to the VMs, a back-end address pool contains the IP addresses of the virtual (NICs) connected to the load balancer. To control the flow of traffic, you define load balancer rules for specific ports and protocols that map to your VMs.

Implementing and Managing Azure Network

Important Terms


Virtual Network (VNET) An Azure Virtual Network (VNet) is a representation of your own network in the cloud. It is a logical isolation of the Azure cloud dedicated to your subscription. Subnet A subnetwork or subnet is a logical subdivision of an IP network. The practice of dividing a network into two or more networks is called subnetting. Computers that belong to a subnet are addressed with an identical most-significant bit-group in their IP addresses. Private IP Address A private IP address is a non-Internet facing IP address on an internal network. Private IP addresses are provided by network devices, such as routers, using network address translation (NAT). Public IP Address A public IP address is an IP address that can be accessed over the Internet. Like postal address used to deliver a postal mail to your home, a public IP address is the globally unique IP address assigned to a computing device. Your public IP address can be found at ‘show my IP Address’ search on go…

How to create and configure Azure Storage Account

Azure Storage Account A Storage Account in Azure is a logical (Virtual) division of the storage hardware at Azure Datacenters, where we are provided with the explicit access to that particular account and storage via different medium such as (Azure Portal or Storage Explorer or any other tool) to store our data which are secured with different layers of security. Microsoft allow to create a storage account at the subscription level in a resource group. Later we can link this storage account with a Virtual Network and its subnet if we want it to be used by internal users only. Further, under storage account we can use different types of storages as per our need. There are four type of storage under each storage account: Blob Storage File Storage / File Share Table Storage Queue Storage Blob Storage Blob is a type of storage where you can upload any type of file or folder with any extension. There are multiple ways to access blob storage but the most popular are – either to access the blob st…
