I wanted to share an experience I had when using the Microsoft Azure Traffic Manager with two Microsoft Azure Web Sites. Simply, it is a way to balance load across multiple identical instances of an application so that requests can continue to be responded to when there is a performance issue or downtime incident on one or more of the web sites.  Kind of like the behavior you would experience in a web farm, but better, IMO.
