Azure Content Spotlight – Blue-Green deployments using Azure Traffic Manager

Welcome to another Azure Content Spotlight! These articles are used to highlight items in Azure that could be more visible to the Azure community.

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.
