Configure a Load Balancer on Microsoft Azure
In this lab you will configure a public and internal Azure load balancer for a web and database environment using pre-deployed server resources. When you are finished, you will have a load-balanced environment with public and private resources.
Terms and conditions apply.
Create a Public Load Balancer
Create a public-facing load balancer for use by a group of virtual machines.
Create an Inbound NAT Port-forwarding Rule
Create an inbound NAT port-forwarding rule for remote desktop protocol traffic to a public load balancer.
Create an Internal Load Balancer
Deploy an internal load balancer. This will be used by the public web server to access internal resources.
Configure Virtual Machines in Load Balancer Backend Pool
Remove and add virtual machines into a Load Balancer. You will remove a non-functional virtual machine, add in an existing virtual machine, and add a new VM during the VM creation process.
