AZ-304 – Question #137


Question #137

You are designing an Azure solution.
The network traffic for the solution must be securely distributed by providing the following features:
✑ HTTPS protocol
✑ Round robin routing
✑ SSL offloading
You need to recommend a load balancing option.
What should you recommend?

A. Azure Load Balancer
B. Azure Internal Load Balancer (ILB)
C. Azure Traffic Manager
D. Azure Application Gateway

Correct Answer: D
If you are looking for Transport Layer Security (TLS) protocol termination (“SSL offload”) or per-HTTP/HTTPS request, application-layer processing, review
Application Gateway.
Application Gateway is a layer 7 load balancer, which means it works only with web traffic (HTTP, HTTPS, WebSocket, and HTTP/2). It supports capabilities such as SSL termination, cookie-based session affinity, and round robin for load-balancing traffic. Load Balancer load-balances traffic at layer 4 (TCP or UDP).
