Although there are plenty of resources out there that tell you how to create a dev/test environment in a cloud-only virtual network, what if you want to set up something that mimics a hybrid cloud, complete with a cross-premises virtual network to a VPN device at your organization? To address this need, the following set of topics for hybrid cloud test environments are now published:
- Set up a hybrid cloud environment for testing
- Set up a SharePoint intranet farm in a hybrid cloud for testing
- Set up a web-based LOB application in a hybrid cloud for testing
- Set up Office 365 Directory Synchronization (DirSync) in a hybrid cloud for testing
These environments use your local Internet connection and one of your public IP addresses and step you through setting up a functioning, cross-premises Azure virtual network. When complete, you can begin performing application development, experimenting with simplified IT workloads, and gauge the performance of a site-to-site VPN connection relative to your location on the Internet.
