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 Service mode (classic) Virtual Network for the backend servers

At the time of writing this book, not all virtual network features have been migrated to ARM virtual networks. VPN is one of these features. Therefore, it is necessary to create a VN in the Service Manager mode to configure a VPN to have safe access from the CloudMakers office. As we have two VNs, it is also necessary to have a safe and privileged access from the frontline ARM VN to this backend VN.

Configuring VN in the classic mode is quite different from ARM. The configuration in the service is XML-based (not JSON-based, like ARM), and it has no specific API. You need to write some XML to configure your VN. One issue is that you can change or create your VN only at the account level. There is only one network configuration XML that contains the network configuration of the entire account. Making changes to this configuration for a project can affect your other deployments.
