What is the difference between Azure service endpoint and private endpoint?

Last updated on September 25, 2022 @ 12:43 pm

Azure service endpoint is a URL that is accessible from the public internet. Private endpoint is a URL that is accessible only from within your organization.

There are some important differences between Azure service endpoint and private endpoint:

Azure service endpoint is always publicly accessible. Private endpoint can be made publicly or privately accessible.

Azure service endpoint is associated with a resource. Private endpoint is not associated with a resource.

PRO TIP: – Azure service endpoint and private endpoint are two different types of endpoints that can be used to access Azure resources.
– Service endpoint provides a way to access Azure resources over the public internet, while private endpoint provides a way to access Azure resources over a private network connection.
– Service endpoint is less secure than private endpoint because it is accessible over the public internet. Private endpoint is more secure because it is only accessible over a private network connection.

Azure service endpoint can be used to access your resources from the public internet. Private endpoint can only be used to access your resources from within your organization.

Azure service endpoint uses the HTTP protocol. Private endpoint uses the HTTPS protocol.

Azure service endpoint has a shorter lifespan than private endpoint. Private endpoint can be maintained for an indefinite period of time.

Overall, Azure service endpoint is a more accessible URL that can be used to access your resources from the public internet. Private endpoint is used for resources that need to be accessed only from within your organization.
