Now we have made the Microsoft NVGRE Gateway in System Center VirtualMachine Manager for our Private Clouds :
It’s Time to make Hybrid Cloud with a Virtual Site-2-Site VPN Gateway with Microsoft Azure.
Here is our configuration on-premisses :
To make a Microsoft Virtual Site-2-Site VPN Gateway with Microsoft Azure follow the next step-by-step guide :
- The name of your Virtual Network in Microsoft Azure ( We called it YellowAzure Because we have also a Private Cloud called YellowTenant )
- Select the region
- And we Created a new Affinity Group Name called YellowAffinityGroup
Here we set two items for the Site-2-Site VPN Gateway :
- Our DNS Server on-premisses YellowDC01 with IP-address 192.168.101.4
- And we mark checkbox Configure a Site to Site VPN
More information on Virtual Network Overview in Microsoft Azure is here
- The Name of the On-Premisses VPN Site, we called YellowTenant.
- The outside IP-Address of your VPN Device, that’s our Microsoft RAS Server. ( Remote Access Server)
- And you add the local address Space, in our case 192.168.101.0/24
Up to 5 Virtual Networks are allowed per subscription and up to 5 Local Networks are allowed per subscription. Each Virtual Network can connect to only one Local Network (one gateway) but there can be multiple subnets on that Local Network for routing purposes.
All the information is there to create the Microsoft Azure VPN Gateway.
The Gateway is ready now on Microsoft Azure, go to the right site of the screen and download the VPN Device Script :
Here you can choose your VPN Device, we have a Microsoft Server 2012 R2 with RAS role active so we choose this one.
The Virtual S2S VPN Gateway is active and running, we have HYBRID CLOUD.
To see this work we made a Cloud Service in Microsoft Azure by the next steps :
The Cloud Service YellowAzure is made and now we are going to provision a Virtual Machine in this Cloud with our own IP-Address :
We joined the YellowAzureVM01 Virtual Machine to the on-premisses domain and is working with servers in the private Cloud called Yellow Tenant.
Hybrid Cloud is working great with Microsoft CloudOS 🙂
