Azure is a cloud computing platform and infrastructure created by Microsoft. It is used for building, deploying, and managing applications and services through a global network of Microsoft managed datacenters. For SonicOS platforms, Azure provides site-to-site Virtual Private Network (VPN) connectivity between a SonicWALL Next-Generation firewall and virtual networks hosted in the Azure cloud.

Deployment Considerations



Static Routing VPN

Site-to-Site VPN

Dynamic Routing VPN

Tunnel Interface VPN

Static Routing VPN/Site-to-Site VPN are policy-based VPNs that allow users to specify a site-to-site network as part of a VPN policy, separate from a routing table lookup.
Dynamic Routing VPN/Tunnel Interface VPN are route-based VPNs that can be used like an interface. This type of VPN can be configured with a route entry which is used to tunnel traffic as a part of the routing table lookup.
NOTE: Currently, only static routes are available for use with SonicOS because Azure does not support dynamic routing protocols such as BGP, OSPF, or RIP.
