Azure Event Hubs flavors multi-tenant offering and single-tenant Dedicated Event Hubs clusters. This single-tenant offering guarantees 99.99% SLA while letting you ingress in GB’s per second with guaranteed capacity and sub-second latency. Customers love the high-scale, low-latency capabilities that Dedicated Event Hubs clusters offer. Along with this rapid adoption of Azure, customers also want to access the data and services securely and within private network boundaries. We have been incrementally adding support for network isolation through VNet Service Endpoints and Firewall rules. Today we are extending this support and are excited to announce the GA of Azure Private Link support for Azure Event Hubs. Private Link support is available for both Standard and Dedicated SKU's of Event Hubs.
Azure Private Link enables you to access Azure PaaS Services (like Azure Event Hubs) and Azure hosted customer/partner services over a Private Endpoint in your virtual network. Traffic between your virtual network and the service traverses over the Microsoft backbone network, eliminating exposure from the public Internet. You can also create your own Private Link Service in your virtual network (VNet) and deliver it privately to your customers. The setup and consumption experience using Azure Private Link is consistent across Azure PaaS, customer-owned, and shared partner services. The technology is based on a provider and consumer model where the provider and the consumer are both hosted in Azure. This also simplifies the network configuration by keeping access rules private
Note: While VNet Service Endpoints provides a way to lockdown access to PaaS resources to a virtual network, this still accesses a public endpoint. With service endpoints you are locking down access to a particular service and not to the resource itself.
Below are a couple of benefits that Azure Event Hubs support to private link provides:
