Introduction to Azure Stack networking
Applies to: Azure Stack integrated systems and Azure Stack Development Kit
Azure Stack provides different kinds of networking capabilities that can be used together or separately:
- Connectivity between Azure Stack resources
Connect Azure resources together in a secure and private virtual network in the cloud.
- Internet connectivity
Communicate to and from Azure Stack resources over the internet.
- On-premises connectivity
Connect an on-premises network to Azure Stack resources through a virtual private network (VPN) over the internet, or through a dedicated connection to Azure Stack.
- Load balancing and traffic direction
Load balance traffic to servers in the same location and direct traffic to servers in different locations.
Filter network traffic between network subnets or individual VMs.
Use default routing or fully control routing between your Azure Stack and on-premises resources.
Monitor and manage your Azure Stack networking resources.
- Deployment and configuration tools
Use a web-based portal or cross-platform command-line tools to deploy and configure network resources.
