Lab: Introduction to Azure Traffic Manager

Overview
In this lab, you will create an Azure Traffic Manager profile, and use it to distribute traffic between 3 Azure Web App endpoints deployed to different global locations. You will learn how to use the Azure portal to configure the different ways in which Traffic Manager distributes traffic between endpoints, and how to configure endpoint health checks and test endpoint failover, for high-availability applications.

Exercises

Exercise 1: Deploying the Environment
In this exercise, you will manually deploy the environment needed for this lab. Only complete this exercise if you are using your own Microsoft Azure subscription and not Opsgility Real Time Labs (in which case this exercise is completed for your automatically).
Exercise 2: Creating a Traffic Manager profile and adding endpoints
In this exercise, we will create a Traffic Manager profile and add each of our Web Apps to the profile as endpoints. We will check that the profile is working, and also learn how to add and remove external (non-Azure) endpoints.
Exercise 3: Configuring Traffic Manager endpoint failover
In this exercise, we will learn how to (and how not to!) configure and test automatic endpoint failover and fail-back using Azure Traffic Manager.
Exercise 4: Configuring the Traffic Manager traffic-routing method

In this exercise, we will learn how to configure each of the Traffic Manger traffic-routing methods, which determine how Traffic Manager chooses which endpoint to direct traffic to for each user.
