Azure Global VNET Peering now available

Good news, everyone! Azure global VNET peering is now generally available in all Azure public regions.

Using AWS? Don’t fret! In November 2017 AWS announced inter region VPC peering. At the time of writing only a select number of regions are enabled for this service.

As a reminder, the main benefits of using VNET or VPC peering compared to traditional gateways are as follows

  • Traffic stays on Microsoft or Amazon backbone network and doesn’t traverse the internet
  • Improved bandwidth and latency
  • Simplified management
