In this hands-on lab, we will create an Azure Scale Set to help distribute traffic to a set of web servers. This is a very important task for Azure Administrators. As an Azure Administrator, there will be multiple situations in which you see a decrease in performance, and this is one of many ways to help boost performance for your web application. Say, for example, you have an e-commerce website and you see a jump in web traffic between 6-7 PM, and your server is not able to handle the increased traffic. You may want a solution that will distribute traffic to a set of servers instead of a single server between 6:00 to 7:00 PM. There are also autoscaling options available that will see a spike in CPU and will bring on additional virtual machines to handle the increase in CPU.

What are Hands-On Labs?

Hands-On Labs are scenario-based learning environments where learners can practice without consequences. Don't compromise a system or waste money on expensive downloads. Practice real-world skills without the real-world risk, no assembly required.
