Aviatrix Controller (AVX-CTRL) can be deployed in AWS, Azure, GCP or OCI. Only one single AVX-Controller needed for an enterprise multi-cloud deployment. A single AVX-Controller can control, manage and operate resources in an all the public clouds.
Recently I noticed that more and more enterprises are asking to deploy Aviatrix Controller in Azure. Hence I decided to write this short blog with screen shots.
Azure Cloud Portal
This blog assumes that you are somewhat familiar with the Azure Cloud Portal.
1- Login to Azure Portal @ https://portal.azure.com
2- Click on the Marketplace link (this could be in a different place depending on your customization) as shown in the screen-shot here
3- Search Aviatrix in Azure Marketplace (as shown in the screen-shot below)
Here you need to select the Aviatrix Bundle – PAYG.
After that, you will see multiple Aviatrix plans listed on Azure Marketplace page. These plans listed based on your enterprise needs and use-cases. In this deployment I have picked pick “Aviatrix Networking Platform Bundle”
|Aviatrix Software plan||Description|
|Multi-service units and SSL VPN users per BYOL||Each FQDN deployment, site to cloud tunnel, or multi-cloud tunnel is a service unit. You can configure as many as SSL VPN users to access your private cloud with MFA and SMAL on Aviatrix Secure Networking Platform.|
Deploy Aviatrix Controller VM in Azure
At this stage, Azure will created the Aviatrix Controller VM. All the steps onward are related to Azure’s Aviatrix VM creation.
Now that your Aviatrix Controller VM is ready, you can login to the UI by browsing the Public IP address of your controller. The default user name is admin and default password is the “Private IP Address” of Aviatrix Controller VM.
