Global Traffic Manager allows you to access the nearest node wherever application or website is located and balance concurrent workloads between multiple nodes based on the DNS architecture. With built-in health checks, you can easily monitor the health of your application and run DNS failover to meet any disaster recovery requirements.
- Health Checks Allows you to perform protocol-based health checks to retrieve the status of application services through the ICMP, TCP, and HTTP(S) protocols.
- Failover Supports the failover between DNS servers. You can isolate failed IP addresses and switch application services running in a failed data center to another data center.
- Load Balance Allows you to use round robin and weighted round robin to manage traffic.
- Smart DNS Provides you with intelligent DNS resolutions that allow user access to the nearest address pools based on networks and regions.
