Your private network in the cloud
- Build a controllable hybrid infrastructure
- Bring your own IP address and DNS server
- With the help of IPSec VPN or ExpressRoute, we can ensure a secure connection
- Have fine-grained control over subnetwork traffic
- Use virtual appliances to set up complicated network topology
- Get an independent and secure environment for app use
Increase security and independence
Azure Virtual Network provides independent and secure environments to run virtual machines and applications. You can use your own private IP address, defined subnetworks, and Access Control policy. With the help of Virtual Networks, you can have Azure act as your own data center.
Construct complicated network topology
In a virtual network, you can choose to run various types of network virtual appliances (WAN optimizers, load balancers, app firewalls, etc.), define communication flow and have better control when planning networks.
Expand data centers to the cloud
With the help of Virtual Network, you can easily expand your local IT environment to the cloud in a manner similar to setting up and connecting to a remote affiliate. There are many ways to securely connect to Virtual Network - you can choose IPSec VPN or use the dedicated connections of Azure ExpressRoute services.
Creating hybrid apps
With the help of Virtual Networks you can set up a secure connection to a local data center hybrid cloud app - for example an Azure Web app can access a local SQL Server database or target a local Active Directory service for user authentication.
IaaS integrated with PaaS works even better
By using Virtual Networks, you can set up a dependable Azure Cloud Services and Azure Virtual Machines service. You can use an Azure Web role on the front-end database and a virtual machine on the back-end database. If you integrate Platform as a Service (PaaS) and Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) together into a virtual network, then you can get greater flexibility and extensibility when you set up an app.
