Public preview: Virtual network service endpoints for Azure Storage and SQL Database
Posted on 25 September 2017
You can now secure Azure Storage and Azure SQL Database to only your virtual networks, by using virtual network service endpoints. Endpoints provide a direct connection from your virtual network to the Azure services, extending your virtual network's private address space and identity to the services. Traffic from your virtual network to the services will always remain on the Microsoft Azure network backbone.
Virtual network service endpoints are in public preview for the following regions:
- Azure Storage: EastUS, WestUS, WestCentralUS, WestUS2, AustraliaEast, AustraliaSouthEast
- Azure SQL Database: EastUS, WestCentralUS, WestUS2
To learn more about virtual network service endpoints, see our documentation.
