Azure Networking is a set of networking services provided by Microsoft Azure to enable communication between Azure resources and the internet, on-premises networks, and other Azure resources. Azure Networking provides a range of networking services to help you design, implement, and manage your network infrastructure in Azure.
Key Azure Networking services:
Azure Networking provides a range of networking services to enable communication between Azure resources, the internet, on-premises networks, and other Azure resources. Here are some of the key Azure Networking services:
- Virtual Network (VNet): A virtual network is a logically isolated network in Azure that provides secure communication between Azure resources. It enables you to define IP address ranges, subnets, and network security groups to control traffic flow.
- Load Balancer: Azure Load Balancer is a highly available, scalable load-balancing service for your applications running in Azure. It distributes incoming traffic across multiple VMs or virtual machine scale sets to improve application availability and scalability.
- Application Gateway: Azure Application Gateway provides a web traffic load-balancing service that enables you to manage and scale your web applications. It supports SSL offload, URL routing, and session affinity.
- Azure DNS: Azure DNS is a domain name system (DNS) hosting service provided by Azure. It provides a global DNS resolution service for your domains and enables you to manage your DNS records using Azure Portal, PowerShell, or CLI.
- VPN Gateway: Azure VPN Gateway provides a secure VPN connection between your on-premises network and Azure. It supports different VPN protocols like P2S, S2S, and VNet-to-VNet, and provides a highly available and scalable VPN solution.
- ExpressRoute: Azure ExpressRoute provides a private, dedicated, and high-throughput connection between your on-premises network and Azure. It enables you to extend your on-premises network to Azure using a private connection, bypassing the public internet.
- Azure Firewall: Azure Firewall is a cloud-native network security service that protects your Azure resources. It provides inbound and outbound protection for your virtual network, and supports application and network rules.
- Network Watcher: Azure Network Watcher is a monitoring and diagnostic service that helps you monitor and troubleshoot your virtual network. It provides features like packet capture, connection troubleshooting, and VPN troubleshooting.
- Network Security Groups: Azure Network Security Groups (NSGs) provide a security layer to your virtual network. It enables you to define inbound and outbound network traffic rules to control access to your resources.
Azure Networking provides a set of services to enable secure and reliable communication between Azure resources and other networks. It allows you to design and implement a network infrastructure that meets your business requirements and provides high availability, scalability, and security for your applications and data. It also enable you to extend your on-premises network to Azure..
