Overview of this book

A well designed cloud infrastructure covers factors such as consistency, maintenance, simplified administration and development, and reusability. Hence it is important to choose the right architectural pattern as it has a huge impact on the quality of cloud-hosted services. This book covers all Azure design patterns and functionalities to help you build your cloud infrastructure so it fits your system requirements. This book initially covers design patterns that are focused on factors such as availability and data management/monitoring. Then the focus shifts to complex design patterns such as multitasking, improving scalability, valet keys, and so on, with practical use cases.

Chapter 4. Networking Design and Management

In the last three chapters, I have tried to give you a more in-depth look at the Azure platform with a comprehensive introduction. In this chapter, we will explore the question: How do I properly link the components of the Azure platform so, they work seamlessly together?

A simple answer: With the Azure Virtual Network (VNet) application building block,  the Azure platform offers the right solution for this.

However, Azure VNet is more than just a simple service. Because of its complexity, you can realize all conceivable scenarios. Individual needs are not a hindrance, but only a matter of adjustment.

 We will explore the following topics in detail in this chapter:

  • Anatomy of a VNet infrastructure
  • Connectivity
  • Internet connectivity
  • Connectivity between Azure resources
    • Azure VNet peering
    • Azure global VNet peering
    • Azure VNet-to-VNet (VPN gateway)
  • On-premises connectivity
    • Azure Point-to-Site
    • Azure Site-to-Site
    • Azure ExpressRoute
  • Azure VNet service endpoints
  • Routing...
