Note:- Below information was received by email from Azure Team and would like to share with reader about the good news on Azure services. Enjoy!
At TechEd North America 2014, we announced the general availability of Azure ExpressRoute, Virtual Networking enhancements, compute-intensive A8 & A9 VirtualMachines, IP Reservation, Import/Export Service, Managed Cache Service, Traffic Manager support for external endpoints, and several other features. In addition, we announced the public preview of RemoteApp, API Management, Redis Cache, Files, BizTalk Hybrid Connections, and Internal Load balancing. Support plans from the providers of top Linux distributions were also announced.
ExpressRoute now generally available
General availability of Virtual Network enhancements
Second, VNET-to-VNET connectivity has been enabled. That is, multiple virtual networks can be directly and securely connected with one another. Using this feature, you can connect VNETs that are running in different Azure regions and have traffic route via the Azure backbone. This feature enables scenarios that require presence in multiple regions, applications that are highly available, or the integration of VNETs for a larger network. The data traffic flowing between VNETs is charged at the same rate as egress traffic.
IP Reservation for VIPs now generally available, and instance-level public IPs for Virtual Machines in preview
For more information, visit the Azure RemoteApp website. RemoteApp is available at no additional cost during public preview.
Specifically, the following support plans are now available.
Requests for premium support are routed through the regular, paid Azure support channels to determine whether the issue is related to the infrastructure or the operating system. If the issue is related to the operating system, the request is transitioned to the appropriate Linux provider’s support process.
