I have just answered Do I need Azure Traffic Manager with Azure API Services? Over on SO

Part of my answer was understanding the failure of all aspects of a solution to which I realised I really don't understand the fault tolerance of Traffic Manager.

If I have a solution hosted in two regions with a Traffic Manager profile spread across them, and an Azure region dies, what prevents Traffic Manager from failing also.


Azure Traffic Manager is one of Azure's globally scoped services. In other words, it is not bound to a specific region and is redundant across all Azure regions by design. Your Traffic Manager profile would live in all regions so would not fail with a region.
