After setting up Virtual Network in Microsoft Azure, I can configure Point-to-Site or Site-to-Site VPN to allow on-premises computer to connect to that VNet. What is the difference if I set up a Windows Server in the same VNet and configure RRAS (Routing and Remote Access Service)? And if I would like to access Internet using both method, what configuration do I need?


As far as I know, the difference would be:

  1. Price, Azure VPN would be cheaper for you on the long run compared to running your own VPN setup inside a VM.
  2. SLA, 99.9 for VPN, while for VM they won't support the configuration inside it.

And Internet access is enabled by default once you create a Vnet or a VM.

  • Add capacity to that as well, different SKUs provide you with different throughput offerings. – Martyn C May 17 '16 at 21:43
