Azure Networking is the foundation of your infrastructure in Azure. So  and I decided we’d bring you a monthly update on What’s new in Azure Networking. In this blog post, you’re introduced to the topics from our show, Wired for Hybrid, with helpful links for you to dive deeper into each of the topic areas.

 

This month, we cover a few items to round out the year, and some things for you to look forward in 2023.

General availability: Static IP configurations of private endpoints

 

In the first of two new features for private endpoint, you can now use static IP addresses when configuring private endpoints in your environment. Traditionally, these are dynamically allocated out of a subnet’s IP range. While this might work in most environments, certain secure implementations requiring a static IP address would be impacted by this. For those organizations needing static assignments, you can now implement this in Azure. The one caveat is you have to assign at creation of the private endpoint, which can be done through the portal, powershell, or az cli. This may mean a recreation of some endpoints to use this feature.

New Features in Public Preview

For some things to look out for in the future, here are a few features that are now in Public Preview.

 

Important Note on Public Preview features – These features are provided without a service level agreement, and are not recommended for production workloads. Use them in a test environment and definitely expect things to change without notice.

 

In the coming months, we’ll be covering new features in Azure Networking as well as taking deep dives into . You can expect a “What’s New” video around the 15th of each month. We’d love to hear your feedback on topics you found helpful, and suggestions for our future talks.

 

See you in 2023!
