Azure IP Ranges

For an integration scenario I’m working on I had to connect Microsoft Azure with my local datacenter. I know there are some solutions available to create a secure connection between your datacenter and Microsoft Azure, but in this case I had to fall back to a direct TCP connection. To minimize the security footprint, I wanted to restrict the range of IP addresses that could access my local server.

But how do I know which IP address range is used by Microsoft Azure? Easy, download the Microsoft Azure IP Ranges document. This file contains the Compute IP address ranges (including SQL ranges) used by the Microsoft Azure Datacenters.
