Utilzing Self-hosted Integration Runtime on Azure VM for on-prem workloads

Hi,

I have a general question about the self-hosted integration runtime. We have two different networks from different companies. Does it make a difference if the self-hosted integration runtime is installed on-prem in comparison to us installing the integration on a VM in our Azure subscription? In case we have it installed on a VM in the Azure environment, woudln't we just need to whitelist the IP address of the IR VM in network which hosts the e.g. SQL server?

Just looking for the best practice in that case also in regards to security considerations.

Many thanks.
Best
Marcel

Hi @mapleloops ,
Welcome to Microsoft Q&A platform and thanks for posting your query.
As I understand your question, it seems you want to know if it's possible to fetch the data from VM by installing Self hosted Integration runtime in on-premise system or do we need to install SHIR in the same VM to fetch the data. Please let me know if my understanding is incorrect .

It is possible to fetch the data from VM by installing self hosted integration runtime in on-premise machine , provided, the local machine needs to be in the same virtual private network. No IP whitelisting is needed .

Hope this will help. Please let us know if any further queries.

Rather the other way around. Installing a self-hosted integration runtime in a VM in the environment where also the ADF resides and then utilizing this VM (in a vnet) to connect to on-prem source systems. How do we best ensure secure connectivity and ensure that the self hosted integration runtime on the vm can communicate with the source environment?

Hi @mapleloops ,
The workaround you suggested is also reliable solution. To ensure SHIR in VM and on-premise can communicate with each other, you can create multiple nodes for your SHIR. You need to install SHIR in both VM as well as On prem server and enable remote connection for both SHIR while registering. Both machines will act as nodes of same IR in your ADF.
