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.

These devices caused more problems for our company than benefits, I would never recommend these to colleagues.

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.

Radware Alteon

  • The software web application is beyond terrible, in most of the cases the web was broken or did not have similar functionality the command line interface had.
  • The command line interface wasn't a natural looking interface, it was very fumbled and while it ran on Linux, the interface was all menus and sub-menus.
  • When enabling different pools for different web services, when a new pool was activated, the old pool connections were all reset instead of allowing HTTP sessions to naturally expire.

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.

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.

We moved away from Alteon to F5 BigIP LTM and just by swapping out the hardware, we saw 40% speed increase in our applications. Everything else is much improved as well, from the web interface to the command line to the API.

Return on Investment

Azure Application Gateway

  • Costs increased for the company, so expenses were more than before.
  • Was able to get better user experience so users won't feel the website is useless.

  • While running on these devices, every release caused many interruptions in service and caused thousands of dollars of lost revenue.
