Applies to: Configuration Manager (current branch)


The content sharing implementation from Azure has changed. Use the enterprise content-enabled cloud management gatewayEnable CMG to act as a cloud distribution point and serve content from Azure Storage. For more information, seeChange CMG.

As of version 2107, you cannot create a traditional cloud distribution point (CDP).

A cloud distribution point is a Configuration Manager distribution point hosted as a Platform as a Service (PaaS) on Microsoft Azure. This service supports the following scenarios:

  • Deliver software to customers using the Internet without additional local infrastructure

  • Activate the cloud for your content delivery system

  • Reduce the need for traditional distribution points

This article will help you learn more about the cloud distribution point, plan its use, and design your deployment. Contains the following sections:

  • Features and benefits
  • topology design
  • Requirements
  • Specifications
  • Cost
  • performance and scale
  • Ports and data flow
  • Certificates
  • Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Features and benefits


The cloud distribution point supports several features that are also supported by on-premises distribution points:

  • Manage cloud distribution points individually or as members of distribution point groups

  • Use a cloud distribution point as an alternate content location

  • It supports intranet and Internet clients


A cloud distribution point provides the following additional benefits:

  • The website encrypts the content before sending it to a cloud distribution point in Azure.

  • Manually scale your cloud service in Azure to meet ever-changing customer demand for content requests. This action doesn't require you to install and provision additional distribution points in Configuration Manager.

  • Supports downloading content from clients configured for other content technologies such as Windows BranchCache.

  • Use cloud distribution points as source locations for pulled distribution points.

topology design

Deploying and using a cloud distribution point includes the following components:

  • Acloud serviceson Azure. The website distributes the content to this service, which stores it in Azure Cloud Storage. The management point provides clients with this content location in the list of available resources, if applicable.

  • Amanagement pointthe site system role normally handles client requests.

    • Local clients typically use a local management point.

    • Internet customers use acloud management gatewaythe aonline management point.

  • The cloud distribution point uses aCertificate-based HTTPSa network service that provides secure network communication with clients. Clients must trust this certificate.

Azure Resource Manager

Create a cloud distribution point using aAzure Resource Manager deployment.Azure Resource Manageris a modern platform for managing all solution resources as one entity, the so-calledresource group. When you deploy a cloud distribution point with Azure Resource Manager, the site uses Azure Active Directory (Azure AD) to authenticate and create the necessary cloud resources.


This feature does not enable support for Azure Cloud Service Providers (CSPs). Cloud distribution point deployment with Azure Resource Manager still uses the classic cloud service, which CSP doesn't support. For more information, seeAzure services available in Azure CSP.

Azure Resource Manager is the only deployment mechanism for new cloud distribution point instances. Existing implementations will continue to work.

Hierarchical design

Where you create a cloud distribution point depends on which clients need access to the content.

  • Azure Resource Manager deployment - Create this type at a primary site or central administration site.

  • Cloud Management Gateway (CMG) can also deliver content to customers. This feature reduces the required certificates and costs for Azure VMs. For more information, seeOverview of the cloud management gateway.

Consider the following behaviors to determine whether to include cloud distribution points in your boundary groups:

  • Internet clients are not dependent on boundary groups. They only use online distribution points or cloud distribution points. If you only use cloud distribution points to serve these kinds of clients, you don't need to include them in your boundary groups.

  • For clients on your internal network to use a cloud distribution point, it must be in the same boundary group as the clients. Customers consider cloud distribution points last in the list of content sources because there is a cost to downloading content from Azure. Therefore, a cloud distribution point is typically used as a fallback source for intranet-based clients. If you need a cloud-based design, create boundary groups to meet this business requirement. For more information, seeSet up boundary groups.

Even if you install cloud distribution points in specific Azure regions, customers don't know the Azure regions. They randomly choose a cloud distribution point. If you are installing cloud distribution points in multiple regions and the customer gets more than one location in the list of content locations, it may mean that the customer is not using a cloud distribution point from the same Azure region.

recover and recover

When using a cloud distribution point in your hierarchy, use the following information to schedule backup and recovery:

  • when you useBackup site servermaintenance tasks, Configuration Manager automatically adds settings to the cloud distribution point.

  • Back up and keep a copy of the server authentication certificate. When restoring a Configuration Manager primary site to a different server, re-import the certificate.


  • you need oneAzure subscriptionhost the service.

    • Aazure administratoryou need to participate in the initial creation of some components, depending on your project. This person doesn't require permissions in Configuration Manager.
  • Site server requiredInternet accessto deploy and manage the cloud service.

  • When usingAzure Resource Managerdeployment method, integrate Configuration Manager withAzure ADDocloud management. Azure ADuser detectionIt is not necessary.

  • Aserver authentication certificate. For more information, seeCertificatessection below.

    • Use a public certificate provider for the server authentication certificate to reduce complexity. When you do that, you also have oneDNS CNAME-aliasfor customers to resolve the cloud service name.
  • Define the client configuration,Allow access to cloud distribution points, DoSimFrom homecloud servicesGroup. This value is set by defaultFrom home.

  • Require client devicesInternet connectionand must useIPv4.


  • The cloud distribution point supports all versions of Windows listed inSupported operating systems for clients and devices.

  • The administrator distributes the following types of supported software content:

    • Shape

    • donuts

    • Operating system update packages

    • Third Party Software Updates


      • Although the Configuration Manager console doesn't block the distribution of software updates from Microsoft to the cloud distribution point, you pay an Azure fee for storing content that your customers don't use. Internet customers always receive Microsoft software update content from the Microsoft Update cloud service. Don't distribute Microsoft software updates on a cloud distribution point.
      • When using CMG to store content, third-party update content is not downloaded to clients ifDownload Delta content when available client configurationit is on.
  • Configure the pull-down distribution point to source from a cloud distribution point. For more information, seeInformation about source distribution points.

Deployment settings

  • Download the content locally as needed for the running task sequence. The task sequence engine can download packages on demand from a content CMG or cloud distribution point. This option provides additional flexibility for in-place Windows Update deployments to Internet devices.

  • Download all content locally before starting the task sequence. With this option, the Configuration Manager client downloads content from a cloud source before starting the task sequence.

  • The cloud distribution point doesn't support package deployments with the om optionRun the program from the distribution point. Use the deployment optionDownload the content from the distribution point and run it locally.


  • You cannot use a cloud distribution point for PXE or multicast deployments.

  • The cloud distribution point doesn't support App-V streaming apps.

  • The cloud distribution point doesn't support content for Microsoft 365 app updates.

  • You can notintroductory contenton a cloud distribution point. The primary site distribution administrator who manages the cloud distribution point uploads all content.

  • You cannot configure a cloud distribution point as a pull-distribution point.



The cost information below is for estimation purposes only. Your environment may have other variables that affect the total cost of running a cloud distribution point.

Configuration Manager includes the following options for controlling costs and monitoring data access:

  • Manage and monitor the amount of content stored in the cloud service. For more information, seeMonitor distribution points in the cloud.

  • Configure Configuration Manager to alert you when client download limits reach or exceed monthly limits. For more information, seeData transfer threshold warnings.

  • Use one of the following peer-to-peer caching technologies to reduce the number of clients uploading data from cloud distribution points:

    • Peer Cache Configuration Manager

    • BranchCache runs on Windows

    • Windows delivery optimization

      For more information, seeBasic content management concepts.


The cloud distribution point uses the following Azure components that are billed to your Azure subscription account:


The cloud management gateway can also deliver content to customers. This feature reduces costs by consolidating Azure VMs. For more information, seeCloud management gateway costs.

virtual machine

  • The cloud distribution point uses Azure Cloud Services as a platform as a service (PaaS). This service uses virtual machines (VMs), which incur compute costs.

  • Each cloud distribution point service uses two standard A0 VMs.

  • LookAzure Pricing Calculatorhelp identify potential costs.


    Virtual machine costs vary by region.

outgoing data transfer

  • All data flows in Azure are free (inbound or in transit). Distribution of website content to a cloud distribution point is upload to Azure.

  • You are billed based on the data that leaves Azure (either outbound or ingested). Data streams from Azure cloud distribution points consist of software content that is downloaded by customers.

  • For more information, seeMonitor distribution points in the cloud.

  • LookAzure bandwidth pricing detailshelp identify potential costs. Data transmission prices vary. The more you use, the less you pay per gigabyte.

content storage

  • Online customers receive free Microsoft software updates from the Microsoft Update cloud service. Do not distribute software update deployment packages containing Microsoft software updates to a cloud distribution point. Otherwise, you'll incur data storage fees for content your customers never use.

  • Cloud distribution points with an Azure Resource Manager deployment use Azure Locally Redundant Storage (LRS). For more information, seeLocally redundant storage.

Other costs

  • Every cloud service has a dynamic IP address. Each individual cloud distribution point uses a new dynamic IP address. Adding additional VMs per cloud service does not increase these addresses.

Ports and data flow

There are two basic data flows to the cloud distribution point:

  • The website server connects to Azure to set up the cloud distribution point service

  • The client connects to a cloud distribution point to download the content

Website server for Azure

You don't need to open gateways to your local network. The site server initiates all communication with Azure and the cloud distribution point to deploy, update, and manage the cloud service. The site server must establish outbound connections to the Microsoft cloud. This action is equivalent to installing the distribution point site system role on the specified site.

Cloud distribution point client

You don't need to open gateways to your local network. Internet clients communicate directly with the Azure service. Internal network clients using a cloud distribution point must connect to the Microsoft cloud.

For more information about content location priority and when intranet customers use a cloud distribution point, seeContent source priority.

When a client uses a cloud distribution point as a content location:

  1. The management point provides the client with an access token along with a list of content sources. This token is valid for 24 hours and gives the client access to the cloud distribution point.

  2. The management point responds to the client's location request withFQDN servicefrom a cloud distribution point. This property is equivalent to the common name of the server authentication certificate.

    If you're using a domain name, such as, the client will first try to resolve that FQDN. You need a CNAME alias in your domain's Internet DNS so that customers can resolve the Azure service name, for example:

  3. The client then resolves the name of the Azure service, such as, to a valid IP address. This response should be handled by Azure DNS.

  4. The client connects to a cloud distribution point. Azure load balances the connection to one of the VM instances. The client authenticates with an access token.

  5. The cloud distribution point verifies the client's access token and provides the client with the exact location of the content in Azure Storage.

  6. If the client trusts the server's authentication certificate from the cloud distribution point, it connects to Azure Storage to download the content.

performance and scale

As with any distribution point design, consider the following factors:

  • The number of simultaneous client connections
  • The size of content that customers download
  • A period of time dedicated to meeting your business needs

depends on youtopology designOf course, if customers have more than one cloud distribution point to choose from for a given content, they draw those cloud services. If you distribute some content to only one cloud distribution point, and a large number of clients try to download that content at the same time, this activity puts more load on that single cloud distribution point. Adding an additional cloud distribution point also adds a separate Azure Storage service. For more information about how the client communicates with cloud distribution point components and downloads content, seePorts and data flow.

The cloud distribution point uses two Azure VMs as the front-end to Azure Storage. This standard implementation meets most customer needs. In some extreme circumstances, with a large number of concurrent client connections (for example, 150,000 clients), the compute power of Azure VMs cannot keep up with client requests. Azure VMs used on a cloud distribution point cannot be resized. While you can't configure the number of VM instances for a cloud distribution point in Configuration Manager, you must reconfigure the cloud service in the Azure portal if necessary. Manually add more VM instances or configure the service for autoscaling.


After Configuration Manager is updated, the site redeploys the cloud service. Manually reconfiguring the cloud service in the Azure portal resets the number of instances to the default value of two.

Azure Storage handles 500 requests per second for a single file. Performance testing of a single cloud distribution point deployed a single 100MB file to 50,000 customers within 24 hours.


Depending on the design of the cloud distribution point, one or more digital certificates are needed.

General information

Cloud distribution point certificates support the following configurations:

  • Key length 4096 bits

  • Version 3 certificates. For more information, seeOverview of CNG certificates.

  • When configuring Windows with the following rules:System encryption: Use FIPS-compliant encryption, hashing, and signing algorithms

  • Support for TLS 1.2. For more information, seeTechnical cryptographic checks.

server authentication certificate

This certificate is required for all cloud distribution point deployments.

For more information, seeCMG server authentication certificateand, if applicable, the following subsections:

  • CMG trusted root certificate for clients
  • A server authentication certificate issued by a public provider
  • The server authentication certificate issued by the PKI company

The cloud distribution point uses this type of certificate in the same way as the cloud management gateway. Clients must also trust this certificate. To reduce complexity, Microsoft recommends using a certificate issued by a public provider.

Don't reuse the same certificate unless you're using a wildcard certificate. Each cloud distribution point and cloud management gateway instance requires a unique server authentication certificate.

For more information on creating this certificate from PKI, seeDeploy the service certificate to cloud distribution points.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Does the client need a certificate to download content from a cloud distribution point?

A client authentication certificate is not required. The client must trust the server authentication certificate used by the cloud distribution point. If this certificate is issued by a public certificate provider, most Windows devices already contain trusted root certificates for these providers. If you issued your organization's PKI server authentication certificate, your clients should trust the issuing certificates throughout the chain. This chain includes the root CA and any intermediate CAs. Depending on the PKI design, this certificate can further complicate the deployment of a cloud distribution point. To avoid this complexity, Microsoft recommends using a public certificate provider that customers already trust.

Can my on-premises customers use a cloud distribution point?

Yes. For clients on your internal network to use a cloud distribution point, it must be in the same boundary group as the clients. Customers consider cloud distribution points last in the list of content sources because there is a cost to downloading content from Azure. Therefore, a cloud distribution point is typically used as a fallback source for intranet-based clients. If you want a cloud-based design, design your boundary groups accordingly. For more information, seeSet up boundary groups.

Do I need Azure ExpressRoute?

Azure ExpressRouteyou can extend your local network to the Microsoft cloud. ExpressRoute or other VNet connections are not required for the Configuration Manager cloud distribution point.

If your organization uses ExpressRoute, isolate the Azure subscription on the cloud distribution point from the one that uses ExpressRoute. This configuration ensures that the cloud distribution point does not accidentally get connected in this way.

Should I keep Azure VMs?

No maintenance required. The cloud distribution point project uses Azure as a Service (PaaS). Using the subscription provided, Configuration Manager creates the necessary VMs, storage, and networking. Azure secures and updates your VMs. These VMs are not part of your on-premises environment like infrastructure as a service (IaaS). The cloud distribution point is a PaaS that extends the Configuration Manager environment to the cloud. For more information, seeSecurity benefits of the PaaS cloud service model.

Does the cloud distribution point use Azure CDN?

Azure Content Delivery Network (CDN) is a global solution for fast, high-bandwidth content delivery by caching content on strategically placed physical nodes around the world. For more information, seeWhat is Azure CDN?.

The Configuration Manager cloud distribution point currently doesn't support Azure CDN.
