Support for on-prem
It would be great to use Application Insights for on-premises scenarios as well.
Can you elaborate what specifically is needed? Application Insights can monitor on-prem services. It is really agnostic about where your application is hosted.
There are two issues with on-prem. 1) Not all servers have internet access due to mandated security requirements. And 2) Many companies are not comfortable with telemetry data leaving their network, regardless of how secure it may be.
In addition, it would be nice if there were some kind of aggregation gateway or proxy, that could forward the telemetry to the cloud, rather than requiring direct server to cloud connection.

Are there plans to update Application Insights so that we can run web tests from on-prem locations in addition to the Azure locations? We have a need to monitor from within our network as well as outside the network.

If you have to meeting any specification where you are legally required to be enclaved (HIPA, FINRA, FEDRAMP, etc.) you cannot simply connect to the Azure cloud.

I have created the Application Insight's URL ping Web Test. But my URL is of On Premise Server. And On premise server can only be recognizable by hybrid connection, virtual network etc. I dont see any option available in Application Insight to create Hybrid Connection to On premise server. How can i hit On premise server URL from Application Insight's URL ping Web test?
