Azure Content Spotlight – Blue-Green deployments using Azure Traffic Manager
This week's highlight is about a great feature of Azure Traffic Manager: Weighted traffic-routing. With Weighted traffic-routing the distribution of traffic across a set of endpoints is done randomly and according to a set of user defined probabilities. There are many use cases for this but the two most notable are Alpha Beta Testing and Blue-Green deployments. Please see the post Deployment Strategies Defined for more details on different deployment strategies and the post Blue-Green deployments using Azure Traffic Manager for a detailed walk-through.
