Choose from flexible traffic routing options
Azure Traffic Manager gives you four methods for traffic routing: Failover, performance, geography and weighted round-robin. Choose the one that's right for you or combine using nested profiles.
Reduce application downtime
Traffic Manager can improve the availability of important applications by monitoring your Azure services, or external websites and services, and it automatically directs your customers to a new location when there’s a failure.
Improve app performance and content delivery
Traffic Manager makes your applications more responsive and improves content delivery times by directing your customers to Azure or an external location with the lowest network latency.
Distribute user traffic over multiple locations
Traffic Manager can direct your customer traffic to distribute it across multiple locations, such as multiple cloud services or multiple Azure web apps. Traffic Manager can use equal or weighted load distribution.
Use with your on-premises datacenter
Traffic Manager is a popular option for on-premises scenarios including burst-to-cloud, migrate-to-cloud, and failover-to-cloud. Use it to upgrade or perform maintenance on your on-site datacenter without inconveniencing your customers.
