Course Description

Load balancers are a fundamental component in any distributed application architecture. In this course, you'll explore what load balancers do and where they are used. Then, you'll discover how they have evolved into modern day application delivery controllers. You'll learn about the different types and features available in modern load balancing solutions. You'll then move on to explore standard network topologies that incorporate load balancing, as well as how to effectively introduce Layer 4 and Layer 7 load balancers. You'll learn how a load balancer in the cloud can vary from on-prem and examine load balancing across different cloud platforms. Finally, you'll learn how to deploy both a Layer 4 and a Layer 7 cloud-native load balancing solution on the Microsoft Azure platform.
