Mastering Cloud Development using Microsoft Azure

By: Roberto Freato, Marco Parenzan

Overview of this book

Microsoft Azure is a cloud computing platform that supports many different programming languages, tools, and frameworks, including both Microsoft-specific and third-party software and systems. This book starts by helping you set up a professional development environments in the cloud and integrating them with your local environment to achieve improved efficiency. You will move on to create front-end and back-end services, and then build cross-platform applications using Azure. Next you’ll get to grips with advanced techniques used to analyze usage data and automate billing operations. Following on from that, you will gain knowledge of how you can extend your on-premise solution to the cloud and move data in a pipeline. In a nutshell, this book will show you how to build high-quality, end-to-end services using Microsoft Azure. By the end of this book, you will have the skillset needed to successfully set up, develop, and manage a full-stack Azure infrastructure.

Configuring a Resource mode Virtual Network for the frontend servers

A VN is a representation of your own network in the cloud. It is a way to organize your VM. Three important aspects that need to be considered are:

  • Resource management: Group and subdivide VMs in different VNs by internal security policies (some VMs cannot reach some others VMs).

  • Address spaces: Different virtual networks can have different sets of addresses. A single address space can be subdivided into subnets.

  • Security: While internal to a single VN, each VM can reach other VMs by default. You can control inbound and outbound traffic at subnet-level VMs with Network Security Groups.

VNs in an Azure account can be found in the Ibiza portal in two distinct containers by going to Browse | Virtual Networks or Browse | Virtual Networks (Classic). From the Classic portal, you will find only Classic VNs.

You can create a VN by going to New | Networking | Virtual Network, by deciding whether you need a classic or a Resource Manager...
