Understanding Azure Front Door


Do you have a web application on Azure that your users rely on always being available and low-latency? Do you need your application to automatically cache selected content, support automatic compression, or enable path-based routing? Are you trying to figure out how to best configure a Web Application Firewall or DDoS protection? Perhaps it’s time to look at Azure Front Door.

Azure Front Door provides a unified, modern edge-based solution for these services. All of those features can make the system a bit overwhelming. In this session, you will learn how Azure Front Door supports these scenarios (and many others) and walk through the process of implementing Azure Front Door for a web application.

In this session, attendees will build a foundational knowledge of Azure Front Door, the problems it solves, and how it compares to other services. We’ll examine how messages flow through Front Door to origins and how to configure those processes. We’ll also explore how to implement Front Door for a common use case: onboarding a domain, adding an SSL cert, and associating it with a redundant set of Azure App Services.
