Private Link vs Private Endpoint

Private Endpoint: It brings the service into your virtual network. It's a network interface created that uses a private IP address from your virtual network. The service could be almost any available in Azure:

  • Azure Storage

  • Azure Cosmos DB

  • Azure SQL Database

The private endpoint must be deployed in the same region and subscription as the virtual network.

Private Link – The umbrella Azure service under which you can make your PaaS resources available privately on a virtual network.
