Published date: 16 August, 2018
We're excited to announce the general availability of virtual network service endpoints for Azure Database for MySQL in all regions where the service is available for General Purpose and Memory Optimized servers. Visit region expansion for service availability.
You can use virtual network service endpoints to isolate connectivity to your logical server from only a subnet or a set of subnets within your virtual network. The traffic to Azure Database for MySQL from your virtual network always stays within the Azure backbone network. Preference for this direct route is over any specific routes that take internet traffic through virtual appliances or on-premises.
There's no additional billing for virtual network access through service endpoints. The current pricing model for Azure Database for MySQL applies as is.
