In this article, I am going to try and explain what a VNet in Azure is and also show you how to create one.
What is a VNET
A VNet (Azure virtual network) is basically your own network in Azure. You are able to configure your Azure network settings and define DHCP address blocks, DNS settings, security policies, and routeing. You can also use subnets. Because of this, you are able to deploy Azure IaaS virtual machines (VMs) and PaaS role instances the same way you would in your on-premises infrastructure. You can even expand your network to Azure, bringing your own IP address blocks.
Read the Microsoft guide virtual network overview if you are not familiar with VNets.
