Azure Application Gateway

For building scalable and highly available applications, Azure Application Gateway does most of the job on behalf of you; automatically load-balancing traffic from a number of users to a number of back-end servers. This ensure scalability and availability. The in-built security is great as can be expected from Microsoft, and user has a variety of tools for monitoring the health of the load-balancing function as well as the health of back end servers behind it.

Barracuda Web Application Firewall

Best Suited for Customer Environments with O365 Setup - Would recommend it for small, medium, or even large-sized organizations. Need to make some adjustments if you have an automated email setup for some apps.

Cons

Azure Application Gateway

  • The ease of setting up a connection to the on-premises sql server to any of the Azure cloud data solutions. One can easily stand up new virtual machines and then create a separate Application Gateway to work with each of the Azure solutions like Azure Data factory or Azure Machine Learning.
  • Also, we can schedule the jobs to be run at a particular time and also on-demand so we would always have the data whenever we will need it.

  • Learning curve to implement
  • If using SD-WAN, multiple devices required

I don’t like that it's part of the Microsoft brand. In general, I am not a fan of Microsoft products but Azure gets it right.

The Barracuda Web Application Firewall is easy to use. Support from Barracuda is great also. Load Balancing of the Web Application Firewall is also nice. This allows you to do maintenance or have large loads for the end-user. Threat monitoring of our network and traffic coming into our services within our cloud solution.

Alternatives Considered

Azure Application Gateway

NGINX and Kong are open sources and we don't like open-source. We want an enterprise application that helps us in the production workload.
