Azure Private Link for Azure Cache for Redis in general availability
Published date: March 31, 2021
Azure Private Link for Azure Cache for Redis provides private connectivity from a virtual network to your cache instance. It simplifies the network architecture and secures the connection between endpoints in Azure by eliminating data exposure to the public internet. Private Link carries traffic privately, reducing your exposure to threats and helps you meet compliance standards.
By using Private Link, you can connect to an Azure Cache for Redis instance from your virtual network via a private endpoint, which is assigned a private IP address in a subnet within the virtual network. Once a private endpoint is created, all access to your cache instance will be restricted to only connections using the private IP addresses when public network access is disabled.
