AzureStack – Breakdown of load balancing component

Being quite the networking geek I decided to breakdown the load balancing component that comes as part of AzureStack, which is actually the same load balancing component which is available from Azure as well.

Now the load balancing component is part of Windows Server 2016 release and controlled by the Network Controller. From a AzureStack perspective we have a Network Resource Provider which “translates” all operations from ARM to the Network Controller, so when a tenant or user goes into the Portal and configures a load balancer setup it will via the Network Resource Provider to the Northbound API on the Network Controller to configure the load balancer.

The Network Controller consists of multiple services which responsible for handling different NFV on the AzureStack, so for load balancing it has its own Software Load Balancer Manager, which stores the LB configuration even in a openvswitch database (OVSDB)
