Network componentens

All networking infrastructure is located in Azure.

Altinn 3 is based on different network components in Azure.

Virtual Network

As part of the Altinn 3 platform there is serveral Virtual Networks. Each Kubernetes Cluster have their own Virtual Network.

This increases security and isolates the different org cluster from eacother.

Application Gateway

Azure Application Gateway is a web traffic load balancer that enables you to manage traffic to your web applications. Traditional load balancers operate at the transport layer (OSI layer 4 - TCP and UDP) and route traffic based on source IP address and port, to a destination IP address and port.

In Altinn 3 we use Application gateways in front of Azure Loadbalancers.
