Microsoft recently released Azure Application Gateway V2 and Web Application Firewall (WAF) V2. These SKUs offer significant improvements and additional capabilities to customers for instance:
Spanish Point provide Azure managed services for systems processing billons of transaction per month and for customers that have migrated all their systems to Azure and Microsoft other cloud services. We have worked with ISVs in finance, HR, engineering and animation to reengineer and re-platform their applications to Azure.
While customers can certainly do the migration on their own by manually configuring new V2 gateways with the same configuration as their V1 gateways, in reality, for many customers this could be quite complicated and error prone due to the number of configuration touchpoints that may be involved. To help with this, Microsoft recently published a PowerShell script along with documentation that helps replicate the configuration on a V1 gateway to a new V2 gateway.
The PowerShell script requires a few inputs and will seamlessly copy over the configuration from a specified V1 gateway to a new V2 gateway, the V2 gateway will be automatically created for you
Completely up to the customer as the specifics of how the traffic flow through the application gateway is architected, vary from application to application and customer to customer. However, guidance is provided for some scenarios of traffic flow. Future tooling will also be considered to help customers with this phase, especially for customers using Azure DNS or Azure Traffic Manager to direct traffic to application gateways.
