Hello Folks !!
After a long time , I am back with a new topic explaining Azure's latest (but not so ) service to you ie Azure Front Door service. Let's go with it !!
It is a global, scalable entry-point that uses the global edge network to create fast, secure, and widely used web applications. Basically it is a cloud Content Delivery Network (CDN) that provides fast, reliable, and secure access between you and your applications’ web content across the globe.
It works at layer 7 using anycast protocol with split TCP and Microsoft’s global network to improve global connectivity. You can use your routing method to ensure that Front Door will route your client requests to the fastest and most available application backend.
Now let's coming to "why we should use Azure front door " --
Azure Front Door enables internet-facing application to:
What are the key benefits of using Azure Front End door --
To scale out and improve performance of your applications and content using Microsoft’s global Cloud CDN and WAN.
Modernize your internet first applications on Azure with Cloud Native experiences
It also provides a rich set of advanced capabilities that enhance the DevOps experience, security posture, and cost-effectiveness for enterprise customers migrating and/or deploying high-performance, scalable, and secure applications on Azure or anywhere.
Now what will happen to existing azure cdn services ..
The existing Azure Front Door and Azure CDN from Microsoft will now be known as Azure Front Door (classic) and Azure CDN from Microsoft (classic) moving forward. Azure Front Door (classic), as well as Azure CDN from Microsoft (classic), will continue to be fully supported and you can continue to use them. There will be no big change as such , but there will be a slight modification in using Azure front door service as CDN .In the coming time , Azure zero downtime migrations from Azure Front Door (classic) and Azure CDN from Microsoft (classic) to Azure Front Door Standard and Premium.
To summarise it up -
Azure Front Door offers dynamic site acceleration (DSA ) as well as global load balancing with near real-time failover. For enterprises that have a global reach, the performance of their web applications is greatly impacted by the proximity of the consumer.
For a better and more consistent experience, enterprises may use content delivery networks (CDNs ) with several distribution points and deliver content to consumers rapidly because of optimized connections and proximity.
Azure Front Door leverages the anycast protocol that goes beyond providing traditional CDN capabilities and offers advanced security capabilities including DDoS attack prevention.
The infrastructure for this globally distributed multi-tenant service is shared across all its customers.
