Azure Private Link is now generally available
Updated: 18 February, 2020
Azure Private Link is now generally available. Azure Private Link is a secure and scalable way for you to consume services (such as Azure PaaS, Partner Service, BYOS) on the Azure platform privately from within your virtual network. Private Link also enables you to create and render your own services on Azure. It enables a true private connectivity experience between services and virtual networks. The technology is based on a provider-and-consumer model where the provider and the consumer are both hosted in Azure. A connection is established using a consent-based call flow and once established, all data that flows between the service provider and service consumer is isolated from the internet and stays on the Microsoft network.
With the general availability of private endpoint and Private Link service resources, Azure customers and partners can create a Private Link service on Azure and render it privately to their consumer's virtual networks using private endpoints. Note that several Azure PaaS services such as Azure Storage, Azure Data Lake Storage Gen 2, Azure SQL Database, Azure SQL Data Warehouse, Key Vault, Azure Database for MySQL, Azure Database for PostgreSQL and Azure Database for MariaDB still offer consumption over Private Link in preview. Azure PaaS will soon offer support for consumption over Private Link in general availability.
