Published date: 16 March, 2020
Azure Private Link for Azure Cosmos DB is now generally available. Azure Private Link provides private connectivity from a virtual network to Azure PaaS services. It simplifies the network architecture and secures the connection between endpoints in Azure by eliminating data exposure to the public Internet.
By using Azure Private Link, you can connect to an Azure Cosmos account from your virtual network via a private endpoint, which is a set of private IP addresses in a subnet within the virtual network. You can then limit access to your Azure Cosmos account over these private IP addresses. When Private Link is combined with restricted network security group (NSG) policies, it helps reduce the risk of data exfiltration.
