Unlock the Power of Alternate ANCs in Windows 365: A Step-by-Step Guide

Using Alternate ANCs in Windows 365
When it comes to the cloud, having the right infrastructure in place is key to getting the most out of it. Windows 365 is no different. In this blog post, we’ll discuss one of the key components of Windows 365: Alternate ANCs (Application Network Connections).

What are Alternate ANCs?
Alternate ANCs are a feature of Windows 365 that allow you to configure your network to connect to different sites and services. This allows you to use different network configurations depending on the application or service you are accessing, or the geographical location of the user.

For example, if you have multiple remote sites, you can use Alternate ANCs to route traffic between the sites and the Windows 365 services. This way, you can use different network configurations to connect to the services depending on the user’s geographical location.

Why Use Alternate ANCs?
There are several benefits to using Alternate ANCs in Windows 365. The primary benefit is that it allows you to route traffic in the most efficient way possible, based on the user’s geographical location.

In addition, using Alternate ANCs can help reduce latency and improve performance. By routing traffic through the most efficient path, you can get the most out of your Windows 365 services.

Another benefit is that Alternate ANCs can help reduce costs. By routing traffic through the most efficient path, you can avoid paying for extra bandwidth and other resources that would otherwise be needed.

Finally, Alternate ANCs can provide a more secure connection. By routing traffic through the most secure path, you can ensure that your data is not compromised.

How to Configure Alternate ANCs in Windows 365
Configuring Alternate ANCs in Windows 365 is fairly straightforward. First, you need to configure the connection settings in the Windows 365 portal. You can do this by going to the Networking tab in the Windows 365 portal.

Once you’ve configured the connection settings, you can then configure the Alternate ANCs. This is done in the Windows 365 PowerShell. You can run the following command to create a new Alternate ANC:

New-AzureRmVpnGatewayConnection -Name $ConnectionName -Location $Location -ResourceGroupName $ResourceGroupName -EnableBgp $True

Once you’ve created the connection, you can then configure the Alternate ANCs. This is done by running the following command:

Set-AzureRmVpnGatewayConnection -Name $ConnectionName -EnableAlternateAnc $True

Once you’ve configured the Alternate ANCs, you can then configure the routing tables for the connection. This is done by running the following command:

Set-AzureRmVpnGatewayConnectionRoutes -Name $ConnectionName -Routes $Routes

Once you’ve configured the routing tables, you can then enable the Alternate ANCs. This is done by running the following command:

Set-AzureRmVpnGatewayConnection -Name $ConnectionName -EnableAlternateAnc $True

By following these steps, you can easily configure Alternate ANCs in Windows 365.

Final Thoughts
Alternate ANCs are a great way to optimize your Windows 365 infrastructure. By configuring the connection settings, routing tables, and Alternate ANCs, you can reduce latency and improve performance. In addition, you can save on costs by routing traffic through the most efficient path. Finally, you can ensure that your data is secure by routing traffic through the most secure path.

For these reasons, it’s important to understand how to configure Alternate ANCs in Windows 365. By following the steps outlined in this blog post, you can easily configure Alternate ANCs in Windows 365.
