By reading this book, you will develop a strong networking foundation for Azure virtual machines and for expanding your on-premise environment to Azure.
Hands-On Networking with Azure starts with an introduction to Microsoft Azure networking and creating Azure Virtual Networks with subnets of different types within them. The book helps you understand the architecture of Azure networks. You will then learn the best practices for designing both Windows- and Linux-based Azure VM networks. You will also learn to expand your networks into Azure and how to use Azure DNS. Moreover, you will master best practices for dealing with Azure Load Balancer and the solutions they offer in different scenarios. Finally, we will demonstrate how the Azure Application Gateway works, offering various layer-7 load balancing capabilities for applications.
By the end of this book, you will be able to architect your networking solutions for Azure.
