VIRTUAL NETWORK

In computing, network virtualization or network virtualization is the process of combining hardware and software network resources and network functionality into a single, software-based administrative entity, a virtual network. Network virtualization involves platform virtualization, often combined with resource virtualization.

Solutions To Wallop The Business Issues

Enhance security and isolation

Azure Virtual Network gives you an isolated and highly-secure environment to run your virtual machines and applications. Use your private IP addresses and define subnets, access control policies, and more. Use Virtual Network to treat Azure the same as you would your own datacentre.

Global reach

Traffic between Azure resources in a single region, or in multiple regions, stays in the Azure network—intra-Azure traffic doesn’t flow over the Internet. In Azure, traffic for virtual machine-to-virtual machine, storage, and SQL communication only traverses the Azure network, regardless of the source and destination Azure region. Inter-region virtual network-to-virtual network traffic also flows entirely across the Azure network.

Sophisticated network topologies

In a virtual network, run your favourite network virtual appliances—WAN optimizers, load balancers, and application firewalls—and define traffic flows, allowing you to design your network with a greater degree of control.

Extend your datacentre into the cloud

Use Virtual Network to extend your on-premises IT environment into the cloud, like you set up and connect to a remote branch office. You have options to securely connect to a virtual network—choose an IPsec VPN or a private connection by using Azure ExpressRoute.

Hybrid applications

Use Virtual Network to build your hybrid cloud applications that securely connect to your on-premises datacentre—so an Azure web application can access an on-premises SQL Server database, or authenticate customers against an on-premises Azure Active Directory service.

IaaS and PaaS

Use Virtual Network to build your services that rely on Azure cloud services and Azure Virtual Machines. Use Azure web roles for your front end and virtual machines for backend databases. Combine platform as a service (PaaS) and infrastructure as a service (IaaS) in a virtual network to get more flexibility and scalability when you’re building apps.

Load Balancer

iT1 Services helps you improve the distribution of workloads across multiple computing resources, such as computers, a computer cluster, network links, central processing units, or disk drives by the use of Load Balancer. Load balancing aims to optimize resource use, maximize throughput, minimize response time, and avoid overload of any single resource. Using multiple components with load balancing instead of a single component may increase reliability and availability through redundancy. Load balancing usually involves dedicated software or hardware, such as a multilayer switch or a Domain Name System server process.

Benefits That You Get With It

Simplify load balancing for applications

With built-in load balancing for cloud services and virtual machines, you can create highly-available and scalable applications in minutes. Azure Load Balancer supports TCP/UDP-based protocols such as HTTP, HTTPS, and SMTP, and protocols used for real-time voice and video messaging applications.

High availability and robust performance for your applications

Load Balancer automatically scales with increasing application traffic. Without you needing to reconfigure or manage the load balancer, your applications provide a better customer experience.

Internal load balancer

Use the internal load balancer for traffic between virtual machines inside your private virtual networks, or use it to create multi-tiered hybrid applications.

Build highly reliable applications

Load Balancer probes the health of your application instances, automatically takes unhealthy instances out of rotation, and reinstates them when they become healthy again. Use Load Balancer to improve application uptime.

Secure your networks

Control your inbound and outbound network traffic, and protect private networks using built-in network address translation (NAT). Secure your network and integrate network security groups with Load Balancer.

Expand your reach using IPv6

Load-balanced IPv6 Internet connectivity all the way to native IPv6 endpoints on your Azure virtual machines. Native dual-stack endpoints help meet regulatory requirements and address the fast-growing number of devices in mobile and IoT markets looking to connect to Azure-based services.
