CDN + FRONT DOOR + WAF + NGINX PLUS + BACKEND SERVER+DB Azure Help Needed

Dear All,

I am trying to host a big e-learning portal to azure , which is already working local but large traffic spikes make issues for it , Videos are already being streamed on azure so no issues for that,
Basically what i want is to land all traffic at Azure CDN (Akmai) and CDN should send traffic to a front end as waf alone cannot work and then it should be passed to a Nginx Plus VM (already made of azure) which will serve the frontend and api will calls will be routed from Nginx to Backend server running on Dotnet Core.

Kindly guide a better solution if there is or any issues or problems regarding this.

Did you planned to setup autoscaling for Nginx plus frontend VM and .net core backend VM?

In your design those two VM's ma be the chocking point for traffic.

You can consider using VMSS which is perfect fit to scale a VM multiple times backed by a load balancer.

Yes I already did , there was no choking I did it because the backend is bulky the api side needs lots of processing , both machines join in virtual network on local. any comments which you would like to share on this architutre? currently cdn is removed front is azure frontdoor?
