Through the rapidly growing adoption of Azure PaaS offerings, customers need to access data and services privately and securely from their networks grow exponentially. This is more pronounced in hybrid environments – on-premises, cross-cloud and cross-platform. We have been incrementally adding support for network isolation through VNet Service Endpoints and Firewall rules. Today, we’re excited to announce the public preview of Azure Private Link support for Azure Service Bus Premium tier.
Azure Private link is a secure and scalable way for Azure customers to address their Azure Service Bus namespace privately from within their Azure Virtual Network. 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. There is no need for gateways, network address translation (NAT) devices, or public IP addresses to communicate with the service.
Azure Private Link essentially brings Azure services inside the customer’s private VNet. The Service Bus namespace can be accessed using the Private IP address just like any other resource in the VNet. This significantly simplifies the network configuration by keeping access rules private.
To learn more about how to setup Azure Private Links for Azure Service Bus Premium tier using PS, CLI or the Azure Portal, please refer to the below documentation.
Note: Private endpoints is supported for Azure Service Bus only in the Premium tier.
