Extended Security Updates in Azure: Customers who migrate workloads to Azure Virtual Machines (IaaS) will have access to Extended Security Updates for both SQL Server and Windows Server 2008 and 2008 R2 for three years after the End of Support dates for no additional charges above the cost of running the virtual machine. For many customers, this is an easy first step before upgrading or modernizing with newer versions or services in Azure. Those that decide to move to Azure SQL Database Managed Instance (PaaS) will also have access to continuous security updates, as this is a fully managed solution. Customers do not need Software Assurance to receive Extended Security Updates in Azure.

Azure Virtual Network—Network address translation is now in preview
Updated: February 18, 2020
Azure Virtual Network now offers network address translation (NAT) (in preview) to simplify outbound-only internet connectivity for virtual networks. All outbound connectivity uses the public IP address and/or public IP prefix resources connected to the virtual network NAT. Outbound connectivity is possible without a load balancer or public IP addresses directly attached to virtual machines. Virtual Network NAT Preview is fully managed, highly resilient.

Private Link:
Azure Private Link is a secure and scalable way for Azure customers to consume Azure Services (such as Storage, SQL, and Cosmos DB) or Customer Own services (for example, Partner Service and BYOS) privately from within their virtual network. Private Link brings in true private connectivity experience between services and virtual networks. The technology is based on a provider and consumer model where the provider and the consumer are both hosted in Azure. A connection is established using a consent-based call flow and, once established, all data that flows between the service provider and the service consumer is isolated from the internet and stays on the Microsoft network. There’s no need for gateways, NAT devices, or public IP addresses to communicate with this service.

Azure Backup offline-backup with Azure Data Box
Updated: February 19, 2020
Now Azure Backup customers can take advantage of Azure Data Box to move large backups of critical enterprise data through offline mechanisms. With this preview, customers will be able to use Azure Data Box (100 TB appliance) and Azure Data Box disks (up to 8 TB each) with the Microsoft Azure Recovery Services Agent to seed large initial backups (up to 80 TB per server) offline to an Azure Recovery Services Vault. Subsequent backups will take place over the network.
