NOTE: this post was written by our friend Kylie Liang (@liangkylie) from the Microsoft Azure Spring Cloud team. Thanks, Kylie!

We are excited to announce the general availability of the Azure Spring Cloud Managed Virtual Network and Autoscale features. Both are critical to securely running production workloads at scale on the Azure Spring Cloud service.

Secure Azure Spring Cloud in Managed Virtual Network

With the Managed Virtual Network feature, you can provision the Azure Spring Cloud service in your virtual network which enables:

  • Isolation of Azure Spring Cloud apps and service runtime from the internet on your corporate network.
  • Interacting with systems in on-premises data centers or Azure services in other virtual networks.
  • Controlling inbound and outbound network communications for Azure Spring Cloud.
