As organizations begin to adopt Microsoft Azure Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS), virtual machines running in Azure often need access to on-premises resources such as Active Directory or SQL databases. The reverse is also true. On-premises systems often need to access cloud-based systems. It's increasingly common to manage cloud-based virtual machines just as on-premises systems, which requires network-level connectivity. Microsoft Azure provides a site-to-site VPN gateway to help organizations connect their Azure-hosted virtual machines to their on-premises networks or even other cloud providers. This session will explore different methods to use the Azure site-to-site VPN gateway to enable cross-premises network connectivity.

You will learn:

  • How to identify Azure site-to-site VPN configuration options
  • How to understand on-premises gateway requirements
  • How to create a site-to-site VPN gateway in Azure
