Deploying ExpressRoute Direct In Azure

The ExpressRoute Direct connects directly to Microsoft's global network via strategically located peering points. The ExpressRoute Direct provides 10 Gbps or 100 Gbps connectivity, which supports Active/Active connectivity.


This feature is not generally available in the Azure portal, and we must register this service before using this service.

Implementing Traffic Manager Profile In Azure

 Microsoft Azure uses a DNS-based load balancer called Traffic Manager to control how users are routed to their services' endpoints across multiple data centers. This tool can protect your services from subpar availability and response times in Azure's global regions.

In this article, we will learn how to create a Traffic Manager profile that provides high availability for our web application.

Deploying Auto Registration For Azure DNS

 The Azure private DNS zones auto registration capability is responsible for managing DNS records for virtual machines in a virtual network. When we connect a virtual network to a private DNS zone with this setting enabled, a DNS record for each virtual machine in the virtual network is created.


A record will be created for each virtual machine. DNS entries for freshly deployed virtual machines are also created automatically in the associated private DNS zone. If we delete a virtual machine, all the DNS records are automatically removed from the private DNS zone.

Configuring Windows Admin Center (WAC)

Server Manager is a great tool, but server manager is only for on-premises use and lets you administer multiple servers.

Microsoft has introduced a new tool that would allow us to manage our on-premise environment and interact with the azure environment in one central place. 


In this article, we will learn how to configure Windows Admin Center (WAC) in On-prem Server.
