As a follow-up to our recent GA announcement, we want to share product updates we are making available that address top feature asks we’ve had from our customers. A new 2021-07-01-preview release for Azure Service Fabric managed clusters has rolled out to all public regions and is available now.
With this preview release, customers can benefit from the following new features:
- Bring your own Virtual Network
This feature will allow customers to create a single dedicated subnet in an existing virtual network the managed cluster will use for IP allocation needs.
- Bring your own Load Balancer
Specific scenarios this addresses include having a separate load balancer(s) for a secondary node type for capacity and performance considerations, multiple applications with same frontend port, and security and management by being able to leverage existing IP and load balancer setup.
This feature will allow customers to add IPv6 support for both the in-built networking and bring your own virtual network scenarios. When enabled the service will create a unique IPv4 and IPv6 address on load balancer and VM resources.
To utilize the new features in this refresh, the API version for Service Fabric managed clusters must be updated to “2021-07-01-preview”.
