Virtual Network

Official Documentation

Service Description

With Virtual Network, Microsoft Azure can be used as an extension to local infrastructure where additional resources can be deployed flexibly and temporarily from the cloud. Network configurations can be created to integrate local computers or networks with network nodes in Microsoft Azure into a virtual network. The cloud resources can be provided their own IPv4 addresses, and custom routing tables can be expanded to include these resources. Combined with Virtual Machines, this makes it possible to migrate virtual machines back and forth between the customer's data center and Microsoft Azure and to provide appropriate configurations for this at the network level so that the migration occurs entirely transparently for the other network elements. Ultimately, users can utilize Azure-based resources as though they were in their own data center.
