Integration Cloud offers a wide set of application and protocol connectivity:
- When we expose an endpoint over a web service, so that other applications can send to this endpoint, we leverage Windows Identity Foundation to secure these connections.
- When integrating to local systems (databases, file system, web services…) that are not connected over a virtual network with our cloud runtime, we use the Cloud Connector, lightweight local installation that can connect to local systems, using a set of (pluggable) adapters.
- It is possible to connect Integration Cloud in a virtual network with other servers (either locally or in the cloud). This can be achieved through Microsoft Azure Virtual Networking.
- Microsoft Azure SQL Database provides a relational database service for Microsoft Azure and other Internet-based applications. The SQL Database firewall prevents all access to your SQL Database server until you specify which computers have permission.
