AZ-304 – Question #132


Question #132

You are designing a solution that will include containerized applications running in an Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS) cluster.
You need to recommend a load balancing solution for HTTPS traffic. The solution must meet the following requirements:
✑ Automatically configure load balancing rules as the applications are deployed to the cluster.
✑ Support Azure Web Application Firewall (WAF).
✑ Support cookie-based affinity.
✑ Support URL routing.
What should you include the recommendation?

A. an NGINX ingress controller
B. Application Gateway Ingress Controller (AGIC)
C. an HTTP application routing ingress controller
D. the Kubernetes load balancer service

Correct Answer: B
Much like the most popular Kubernetes Ingress Controllers, the Application Gateway Ingress Controller provides several features, leveraging Azureג€™s native
Application Gateway L7 load balancer. To name a few:
✑ URL routing
✑ Cookie-based affinity
✑Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) termination
✑ End-to-end SSL
✑ Support for public, private, and hybrid web sites
✑ Integrated support of Azure web application firewall
Application Gateway redirection support isn’t limited to HTTP to HTTPS redirection alone. This is a generic redirection mechanism, so you can redirect from and to any port you define using rules. It also supports redirection to an external site as well.
