What Azure services can work as load balancers and at what OSI layer do they operate?

Experience Level: Senior
Tags: Azure CloudAzure Storage

Answer

  • Azure Application Gateway - operates at OSI layer 7
  • Azure Load Balancer - operates at OSI layer 4 (transport layer)
  • Azure Font Door - operates at OSI layer 7 (application layer - HTTP)
  • Azure Traffic Manager - operates using DNS

Note that Azure API Management doesn't perform any load balancing so it should be used in conjunction with a load balancer such as Application Gateway or a reverse proxy.
