Establishing multi-site connectivity with Azure Virtual Networks

Posted on May 20, 2016 by Arman Koradia | Comments(0)

Recently, I designed an architecture for client application where we used Azure’s VNet-to-VNet connectivity for geo-redundancy. The requirement was such that they wanted to continue with their on-premises infrastructure, so we thought of it as DR (disaster recovery) solution. In the design we proposed Multi-Site connectivity as well, with VNet-to-VNet connectivity in Azure, you can connect two different VNets with each other. You can use this connectivity to connect two VNets across different regions or across different subscriptions. The question that comes to mind is “Why connect VNets?” So, connecting VNet is especially useful when you want to setup multi-tier applications with multiple virtual networks connected together with a strong isolation boundary and secure inter-tier communication within same region. This can also help you set up geo-replication or synchronization over a secure connection without going out over the internet. Connecting one Virtual Network with another is almost similar to connecting an on-premises network to Azure’s Virtual Network as both the connection uses a VPN gateway to provide a secure IPSec tunnel for data transfer. Are you new to VNet-to-VNet connectivity? If yes, click here to get more insight on VNet-to-VNet connectivity in Azure. Now, where can we include VNet connectivity?

IT industry today is fast paced compared to any other industries in this century. Growth, Upgrade, Mobility, Availability are the buzz words in today’s world. This is the only industry which is more fashion driven than women’s fashion. With the growth of Cloud Computing, people are moving their existing infrastructure to Cloud. Many tech-giants like Amazon, Microsoft, Google, VMWare are offering their services in cloud computing. Amazon Web Services and Microsoft Azure are very frequent names for cloud services. Azure argues that its platform allows businesses to fully take advantage of hybrid cloud platforms. Azure Logic Apps works with your existing assets like legacy softwares, ERP, etc and extend it to Azure cloud. Thus with Azure, extensibility is in your control. Problem Definition: Cloud Consultant always get below requirements: Moving your on premise Windows Server to Microsoft Azure Moving your Amazon EC2 Windows Instance to Microsoft Azure. We have configured SharePoint Server or Exchange Server on AWS or on premise. To setup the same environment on Azure from scratch, might be time consuming or complicated process. So in such cases we will want to migrate preconfigured server to Azure. Solution: To solve the above problem, I’ll take you through the
