Overview

This article is about Microsoft Azure Networking overview and the components which help us in order to connect our resource on Microsoft Azure to our local infrastructure and vice versa if there is any scenario for connecting our local resources to Microsoft Azure and make sure that security is provided.

Azure Virtual Network (VNET)

An Azure Virtual Network (VNet) is a representation of your own network in the cloud. It is a logical
isolation of the Azure cloud dedicated to your subscription. You can use VNets to provision and manage
virtual private networks (VPNs) in Azure and, optionally, link the VNets with other VNets in Azure, or with
your on-premises IT infrastructure to create hybrid or cross-premises solutions. Each VNet you create has
its own CIDR block and can be linked to other VNets and on-premises networks if the CIDR blocks do not
overlap. You also have control of DNS server settings for VNets, and segmentation of the VNet into
subnets. Reffering to the Microsoft Docs: Azure Virtual Network Microsoft Docs
