Geo-based Routing w/ Azure Traffic manager & Amazon Route 53

Two talks: Geo-based Routing & Load Balancing on Azure and Amazon. And a talk on Queue-Centric Workflow focused on advanced scenario where maintaining state is needed (and solved with Service Bus).

AGENDA

  • 6:00-6:25 - Gather, have some pizza, grab a cold drink, socialize
  • 6:25-6:30 - Call to order, grab a seat
  • 6:30-7:00 - Bill Wilder will cover an interesting architecture pattern, Queue-Centric Workflow with Windows Azure Service Bus for maintaining state
  • 7:00-8:15 - Udaiappa Ramachandran will dig into Geo-based Routing (Latency-based) across Azure and Amazon Cloud Platforms
  • 8:15-8:30 - Giveaways, announcements
  • 8:30-?:00 - Grab a cold beverage nearby

DETAILS

Microsoft Azure and Amazon Web Services making available Latency Based Routing (LBR) technology.  With LBR you can have instances in multiple regions of cloud data centers and have requests from your end-users automatically routed to the region with the lowest latency. In this session we'll be talking about Azure Traffic Manager and Amazon Route 53.

Featured Speaker: Udai Ramachandran

--

The reliable queue is commonly used in the cloud to support decoupling of tiers of an application - thus, the Queue-Centric Workflow pattern. Sometimes that queue works a lot better with a little bit of state. We'll look at how this scenario comes up and show how the Windows Azure Service Bus can help.

[Note - while this talk will cover parts of Service Bus, since SB is rather extensive, it will not cover it all. But covers what you will hopefullt find to be a rather interesting aspect.]

Speaker: Bill Wilder

    Thanks Bill.

    Our load balancer product for Azure VMs provides Layer 7 features such as sticky sessions using IP/Cookie, content switching and so on which isn't possible today with Azure's built-in load balancing features.

    The product is free so feel free to give it a try. I would be happy to help address any related queries group may have.

    Udai covered all the basics required to make sense of rest of the presentation, good job Udai.

    Here is some relevant follow-up. Bhargav Shukla from KEMP was at the meeting -- I pointed him out towards the end since his company has a product that can provide add'l routing capabilities beyond what's baked into Traffic Manager on Windows Azure today. You can find out more details here: http://kemptechnologies.com/load-balancer-for-azure. The product is free to download to try out and there's a video showing deployment walk-thru.

    Enjoyed the discussion both from Bill and Udai. Great job guys. And FYI it is possible to use Traffic Manager on Cloud Service even if it's not web role. You just can't configure TM to directly access VMs, it has to be a Cloud Service for given VM or VMs.

    Udai's talk was engaging and illuminating. He really understands these technologies and was very good at explaining the features and key differences.
