At the core of presentation tier high availability is a thorough knowledge of load balancing. In this course, Managing Network Load Balancing in Microsoft Azure, you’ll learn how to implement native Azure software load balancers to distribute service requests across multiple Windows Server or Linux VMS running in an Azure virtual network. First, you’ll learn how to configure public load balancers in Azure IaaS environments. Next, you’ll explore the internal load balancer. Finally, you’ll discover how to implement advanced load balancing scenarios, including Application Gateway and Traffic Manager. When you’re finished with this course, you’ll have a foundational knowledge of Azure load balancing that will help you as you move forward in your career as an Azure architect or administrator.

Course Overview
Hello there, my name is Tim Warner. Welcome to my course, Managing Network Load Balancing in Microsoft Azure. I'm a Pluralsight staff author, Microsoft MVP, and Azure Solution Architect. This advanced level course is aimed at IT operations professionals who are responsible for deploying and maintaining Infrastructure as a Service solutions in Azure, particularly the networking environment. By the end of the course, you'll understand how to choose the right Azure load balancer solution to suit your requirements. We cover the Azure public load balancer, internal load balancer, application gateway, and traffic manager. I hope you'll join me on this journey to master Azure IaaS load balancing in our Managing Network Load Balancing in Microsoft Azure course at Pluralsight.

Configuring Public Load Balancers in Microsoft Azure
Hello there, and welcome to Pluralsight. My name is Tim Warner. This course is entitled, Managing Network Load Balancing in Microsoft Azure. This is the first module of the course. Its title is Configuring Public Load Balancers in Microsoft Azure. I have two learning objectives for us this time around. We're going to first differentiate among the different Azure load balancing options, and our practical learning goal will be that by the end of this module you will understand how to design and deploy and configure a public load balancer. Let's get right to it, shall we? I always include exercise files with my Pluralsight courses. They're useful, so you should know where to find them if you don't already. In the Pluralsight web player, you'll want to navigate over to the Exercise Files tab, and then click Download Exercise Files. You need to do this only once. That zip archive contains the PDF representations of all of my slide decks for the entire course, as well as links lists that contain URL references, and where appropriate, my PowerShell source code.

Configuring Internal Load Balancers in Microsoft Azure
Hello there, and welcome to Pluralsight. This module is entitled Configuring Internal Load Balancers in Microsoft Azure. The learning objectives are pretty lean and mean in this course. I have just two. We're going to look at internal load balancer use cases, and then of course where the proverbial rubber meets the road, you'll learn how to deploy and configure the internal load balancer. Now if you're coming from the first module of this course, I hope you are, you already know how the public load balancer works, so actually what we're doing in this module serves as an excellent reinforcement of those same concepts. Let's get started.

Configure Advanced Load Balancing
Hello there, and welcome to Pluralsight. Welcome to Configuring Advanced Load Balancing. This is the third module of our course on Configuring Azure Load Balancers, and thus far, if you've come with me through the first two modules, you're up to speed with the public and internal load balancers. What we're going to do today is finish up looking at what I call advanced load balancing solutions. We'll start with Application Gateway, and then move right into Traffic Manager. Let's do this.
