Azure DNS Private Zones
Azure DNS private zones provide a simple, reliable, secure DNS service to manage and resolve names in a virtual network without the need to create and manage a customised DNS solution. Use your own domain names and get name resolution for virtual machines within and between virtual networks. Additionally, configure zone names with a split-horizon view to allow a private and a public DNS zone to share the same name.
Azure DNS Private Resolver Preview
Azure DNS Private Resolver (in preview) is a cloud-native, highly available, and DevOps-friendly service. It provides a simple, zero-maintenance, reliable, and secure DNS service to resolve and conditionally forward DNS queries from a virtual network to on-premises DNS servers and other target DNS servers without the need to create and manage a customised DNS solution. Resolve DNS names hosted in Azure DNS private zones from on-premises networks as well as DNS queries for your own domain names. This will make your DNS infrastructure work privately and seamlessly across on-premises networks and enable key hybrid networking scenarios.
