Look into an equivalent cloud scenario

Microsoft Azure Connect provides a simple mechanism to set up IP-based connectivity between on-premises and Microsoft Azure resources, making it easier for an organization to migrate its existing applications to the cloud. For example, a company can deploy a Microsoft Azure application that connects to an on-premises SQL Server database or domain-join Microsoft Azure services to an on-premises Active Directory deployment. In addition, Microsoft Azure Connect enables remote administration and troubleshooting using the same tools for on-premises applications.

This scenario walks through the steps in learning about, deploying and managing the technology and products to bridge on-premises and Microsoft Azure systems. It collects our best articles, videos, and training materials with access to all the products you’ll need.
