Azure Networking is the foundation of your infrastructure in Azure. So
This month, we cover a few items to round out the year, and some things for you to look forward in 2023.
Generally available: Custom IP Prefixes (BYOIP) now available in US Government regions
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.
General availability: Custom network interface name configurations of private endpoints
General availability: Azure DNS Private Resolver – hybrid name resolution and conditional forwarding
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.
- Public preview: Azure Firewall Basic – This SKU is designed for smaller organizations requiring a subset of Azure Firewall features at a lower cost.
- Public preview: Azure Bastion now support shareable links – Now you can access your Azure Bastion-connected VMs and VM Scale Sets with using the Azure portal via a shareable link.
- Public preview: IP Protection SKU for Azure DDoS Protection – This new SKU provides Azure DDoS protection for individual Ips vs. protecting your entire organization. This gives smaller organizations and those only needed DDoS protection on specific IP addresses a cost-effective option vs.
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!
