Azure Virtual Network Manager

Azure Virtual Network (VNet) Manager is a cloud-based tool provided by Microsoft that enables users to manage and configure virtual networks in the Azure cloud. It allows users to create and configure virtual networks, as well as manage the resources and services within those networks.

Using Azure VNet Manager, users can create virtual networks and specify the subnets and address spaces for those networks. They can also create network security groups (NSGs) and configure access control rules for the virtual networks.

In addition to creating and configuring virtual networks, Azure VNet Manager also allows users to manage the resources and services within those networks. This includes tasks such as creating and configuring virtual machines, creating and configuring load balancers, and creating and configuring VPN gateways.

Here are the steps to use Azure Virtual Network (VNet) Manager:

  1. Sign in to the Azure portal: The first step in using Azure VNet Manager is to sign in to the Azure portal. You can do this by visiting the Azure portal website and entering your Azure account login credentials.
  2. Create a virtual network: Once you have signed in to the Azure portal, you can create a virtual network by clicking on the “Create a resource” button and selecting “Virtual network” from the list of available resources. You will need to specify the name of the virtual network, the address space, and the subnets for the virtual network.
  3. Configure network security groups (NSGs): Once you have created a virtual network, you can configure network security groups (NSGs) to control access to the resources within the network. To create an NSG, click on the “Create a resource” button and select “Network security group” from the list of available resources. You will need to specify the name of the NSG and the rules for controlling access to the resources within the virtual network.
  4. Create and configure virtual machines: You can create and configure virtual machines within your virtual network by clicking on the “Create a resource” button and selecting “Virtual machine” from the list of available resources. You will need to specify the name of the virtual machine, the size and configuration of the virtual machine, and the virtual network and subnet in which the virtual machine will be deployed.
  5. Create and configure load balancers: You can create and configure load balancers to distribute incoming traffic across multiple virtual machines or resources in your virtual network. To create a load balancer, click on the “Create a resource” button and select “Load balancer” from the list of available resources. You will need to specify the name of the load balancer, the virtual network and subnet in which it will be deployed, and the resources that it will be load balancing.
  6. Create and configure VPN gateways: If you want to establish a virtual private network (VPN) connection between your virtual network and an on-premises network, you can create and configure a VPN gateway. To create a VPN gateway, click on the “Create a resource” button and select “VPN gateway” from the list of available resources. You will need to specify the name of the VPN gateway, the virtual network and subnet in which it will be deployed, and the type of VPN connection you want to create (e.g., Site-to-Site, Point-to-Site).
  7. Manage resources and services: Once you have created and configured the resources and services within your virtual network, you can use Azure VNet Manager to manage those resources and services. This includes tasks such as viewing resource usage and performance metrics, modifying resource configurations, and scaling resources up or down as needed.

How do Organisation’s use Virtual Network Manager

Organizations use Azure Virtual Network (VNet) Manager to manage and configure virtual networks in the Azure cloud. VNet Manager enables organizations to create and configure virtual networks, as well as manage the resources and services within those networks.

Some of the ways that organizations use VNet Manager include:

  1. Creating and configuring virtual networks: VNet Manager allows organizations to create and configure virtual networks in the Azure cloud. This includes tasks such as specifying the address space and subnets for the virtual network, and configuring network security groups (NSGs) to control access to resources within the network.
  2. Managing virtual machines: VNet Manager allows organizations to create and configure virtual machines within their virtual networks. This includes tasks such as specifying the size and configuration of the virtual machines, and configuring their networking and security settings.
  3. Managing load balancers: VNet Manager enables organizations to create and configure load balancers to distribute incoming traffic across multiple virtual machines or resources in their virtual network.
  4. Managing VPN gateways: VNet Manager allows organizations to create and configure VPN gateways to establish a virtual private network (VPN) connection between their virtual network and an on-premises network.
