Lab description

Azure Front Door CDN is a global, scalable entry-point that uses the Microsoft global edge network to create fast, secure, and widely scalable web applications. Azure Front Door CDN combines the capabilities of Azure CDN Standard and Azure Web Application Firewall to provide a secure, fast, and reliable cloud delivery solution for your Azure applications.

Using Front Door with a Storage account in Azure is a great way to serve static content from a storage account. It can help accelerate the delivery of your static content by caching it at strategically placed locations. Organizations can also leverage Front Door to provide a single global entry point for their applications, which can be used to route to multiple backend pools consisting of Azure Storage, Web Apps, Cloud Services, and even on-premises web servers.
