Ensuring high availability and optimizing resources are crucial for companies aiming to provide a flawless user experience. One of the main challenges faced by many enterprises is effectively managing traffic distribution to avoid server overload, downtime, and bottlenecks. This is where Azure Load Balancing comes into play, providing a powerful solution to tackle these challenges.

What are the types of load balancing?

Load balancing is a critical component of modern IT infrastructure, distributing network or application traffic across multiple servers to avoid overloading a single resource. Azure Load Balancing has various types, including:

  • Application Gateway is designed to optimize web traffic and offers advanced layer 7 load balancing capabilities.
  • Azure Traffic Manager allows for the global distribution of traffic across multiple Azure regions.
  • Azure Load Balancer is a layer 4 (TCP, UDP) load balancer that ensures high availability.

Azure Load Balancer Best Practices with Teleperformance

Adopting these Azure Load Balancer best practices is pivotal for optimizing performance and ensuring a resilient infrastructure:


Network security groups

High availability through zone routing

Health probing and monitoring

Dynamically adjust resources based on demand to prevent over-provisioning and bottlenecks

Define security rules to protect communication between resources and guard against potential threats

Distribute traffic strategically across available zones to enhance system resilience in the face of localized failures

Regularly assess the condition of backend servers, enabling proactive identification and redirection of traffic from unhealthy instances

Use cases

Use case 1: Latency optimization across regions

Problem statement

A client with a globally utilized solution faces latency issues stemming from the diverse geographical locations of its users.

Solution and outcome

Teleperformance implemented a global layer 4 load balancer that enables the efficient distribution of low-latency traffic across multiple regions. This strategic development optimizes the user experience by directing requests to the nearest server, minimizing latency, and ensuring a seamless interaction irrespective of the user’s geographic location.

Use case 2: Enhanced security for an internet-facing application

Problem statement

A client expresses heightened security concerns for its internet-facing application, seeking a robust solution to safeguard against potential cyber threats.

Solution and outcome

By integrating WAF with the application gateway, Teleperformance helped the client fortify the security of its web applications. This proactive approach not only adds an extra layer of protection against common web vulnerabilities but also instills confidence in managing external audits. The combined capabilities of WAF and the application gateway create a secure perimeter, shielding the application from malicious attacks and ensuring a resilient defense against evolving cyber threats.

In summary, Azure Load Balancer, when implemented following best practices, becomes a cornerstone for companies seeking high availability, resource efficiency, and an enhanced user experience.

Teleperformance Cloud Business Services acts as a strategic partner, leveraging the full potential of Azure Load Balancer to address real-world challenges and position businesses for success in the digital era.
