Hi All, I am looking into the scenario below for a customer, concerning ADFS on Azure in combination with Traffic Manager. In every Azure region that the customer is active (Europe, Asia, America) we deploy an ADFS server for sts.contoso.com (on Azure). This is done with separate vNets connected through VPN, making replication between ADFS farm nodes possible, WID seems to be the best option as a database backed (as SQL would require Mirroring – and separate ADFS farms - , which I am not sure can manage 3 nodes). In this scenario there is 1 ADFS Farm for sts.contose.com containing 3 servers, in 3 different Azure Regions. On top of this setup we want to use Azure Traffic Manager for Geo-Loadbalancing (DNS), where the LB type would be shortest path (sending people from the Europe Region, to the Europe ADFS Server). Aidan Finn (http://www.aidanfinn.com/?p=16959) worked out something like the image below. Note that this setup lacks Geo Loadbalancing to mitigate the need of DNS changes.
Is this a feasible scenario?
Mvg, Anthony Van den bossche
