In my series about Windows Server 2019, I have a new feature I want to introduce to you, called the Azure Network Adapter. The Azure Network Adapter is one of the features to improve the hybrid cloud experience in Windows Server 2019. A lot of workloads are running cross-cloud and require connections to virtual machines running in Azure. There are several options like Site-to-Site VPN, Azure Express Route, or Point-to-Site VPN. With Windows Admin Center and Azure Network Adapter in Windows Server 2019, you get a one-click experience to connect your Windows Server with your Azure Virtual Network using a Point-to-Site VPN connection.

Even this is might not for every enterprise scenario, and there are a lot of scenarios where you might quickly want to connect a server to Azure. The Azure Network Adapter functionality gives you that feature with a one-click button. And by the way, it also works on Windows Server 2012 R2 and higher.
