Azure Load Balancer new distribution mode

30 October 2014

We have introduced a new distribution mode called Source IP Affinity and is also known as session affinity or client IP affinity. Azure Load Balancer can be configured to use a 2 tuple (Source IP, Destination IP) or 3 tuple (Source IP, Destination IP, Protocol) to map traffic to the available servers.

Protecting against the SSL 3.0 vulnerability

29 October 2014

Starting on December 1, 2014, Azure and Office 365 will begin disabling support for SSL 3.0. This means that from December 1, 2014, all client/browser combinations will need to utilize TLS 1.0 or higher to connect to Azure and Office 365 services without issues and may require certain client/browser combinations to be updated.
