Cloud networking refers to hosting or using some or all network resources and services—virtual routers, bandwidth, virtual firewalls, or network management software—from the cloud, whether public, private, or hybrid. With more and more companies realizing the economies of scale by utilizing cloud as a centralized resource-as opposed to a secondary resource-companies can leverage the power of public internet and SD-WAN technologies to create a true 'anywhere, anytime' platform for their employees and applications.
Transformyx and Microsoft Azure:
- Rely on a global network: Build your network in the cloud to reach your customers, on-premises users, and resources on a global scale. Seamlessly deploy your advanced networking infrastructure using a highly available global Azure DNS with your Azure Virtual Network resources. Optimize applications across Azure Availability Zones and multiple regions with Azure Load Balancer. Build scalable, secure, and highly available web front-ends in Azure with Azure Application Gateway. Accelerate performance and availability of your content to customers worldwide with Azure Content Delivery Network.
- Secure your apps and infrastructure: Provide a secure environment for your data with more compliance certification offerings than any other cloud service provider. Limit traffic to resources and applications in your virtual network with network security groups. Configure network security as an extension of your application’s structure and replicate your security policy with application security groups. Protect your applications from web vulnerabilities and exploits with web application firewall. Extend basic threat and DDoS protection with Azure DDoS Protection, offering resource-level protection, logging, alerting, and telemetry to further protect your virtual network from attacks.
- Intelligently monitor your resources: Create a monitoring strategy to determine the effectiveness of your applications and resources. Gain insight into the performance of all your applications, services, and resources using integrated tools and services in Azure, including Network Performance Monitor (NPM) which is part of the Azure Log Analytics suite. Monitor end-to-end connectivity and performance between your branch offices and Azure using NPM for Azure ExpressRoute. Track the performance, security, and health of your infrastructure with the tools available in Azure Monitor. Quickly diagnose problems and mitigate issues in your network with packet capturing, flow log analysis, and alerting in Azure Network Watcher.
- Make reliable, private connections: Add connectivity to your cloud resources, making Azure a natural extension of your existing network. Create a private and fast network connection to Azure with Azure ExpressRoute and take advantage of a global network owned and operated by Microsoft. Connect two Azure virtual networks anywhere without the overhead of using gateways to broker the connection with virtual network peering. Securely and privately access your Azure resources with built-in VPN capabilities in Azure Virtual Network. You’ll find point-to-site functionality and site-to-site options for region to region or connectivity to your own datacenter with multiple bandwidth options and support from multiple leading appliance vendors.
