Azure DNS Private Resolver is a new Microsoft service that allows organizations to query Azure DNS private zones from an on-premises environment, and vice versa, without the need to deploy VM based DNS servers. This new service is fully managed in Azure, and in May 2022, Microsoft announced its availability in public preview.
This new product enables customers to conditionally route domains back to on-premises across multi-cloud providers and public DNS servers without having to provision IaaS-based solutions on their virtual networks. This works for your existing Azure ExpressRoute, Azure Bastion setups, and Azure VPN.
Furthermore, you will be able to modify their DNS settings at Virtual Network level in a more straightforward manner, by attaching rules to each Virtual Network and enabling conditional forwarding at scale.
