Connecting On-Premises Servers to Microsoft Azure Roles with Microsoft Azure Connect

Share this:

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