Comparison between Azure Application Gateway V1 and V2

Microsoft has announced new version of Azure Application Gateway and its Web Application Firewall module (WAF). In this article, we will discuss about the enhancements and new highlights that are available in the new SKUs i.e. Standard_v2 and WAF_v2. Enhancements and new features: Scalability: It allows you to perform scaling of the number of instances on the traffic. Static VIP: The VIP assigned to the Application Gateway can be static which will not change over its lifecycle. Header Rewrite: It allows you to add, remove or update HTTP request and response headers on application gateway. Zone redundancy: It enables application gateway to survive zonal failures which allows increasing the resilience of applications. Improved Performance: Improvement in performance during the provisioning and during the configuration update activities. Cost: V2 SKU may work out to be overall cheaper for you relative to V1 SKU.

Difference between Azure Front Door Service and Traffic Manager

Azure Front Door Service is Microsoft’s highly available and scalable web application acceleration platform and global HTTP(s) load balancer. Azure Front Door Service supports Dynamic Site Acceleration (DSA), SSL offloading and end to end SSL, Web Application Firewall, cookie-based session affinity, URL path-based routing, free certificates and multiple domain management. In this article, I will compare Azure Front Door to Azure Traffic Manager in terms of performance and functionality. Similarity: Azure Front Door service can be compared to Azure Traffic Manager in a way that this also provides global HTTP load balancing to distribute traffic across different Azure regions, cloud providers or even with your on-premises. Both AFD & Traffic Manager support: Multi-geo redundancy: If one region goes down, traffic routes to the closest region without any intervention. Closest region routing: Traffic is automatically routed to the closest region. Differences: Azu
