Azure Virtual Network (vNet) in Classic

This blog post will cover how to create an Azure Virtual Network (vNet) in Classic deployment model.

Virtual network (vNet) in Azure allows you to create your own network boundary in the cloud.

Subnets can be created in each Virtual network (vNet) allowing a logical subdivision, dividing a network into one or more networks. For example, “frontend” subnet for DMZ zone, web servers etc and “backend” subnet for database servers.

Network security groups or firewalls can then control traffic between each subnet.
