VPN Gateways

Setting up a virtual network is free of charge. However, we do charge for the VPN gateway that connects to on-premises and other virtual networks in Azure. This charge is based on the amount of time that the gateway is provisioned and available.

Data Transfers

Type Example Price
Inbound inter-virtual Data going into Azure data centres between two virtual networks Free
Outbound inter-virtual Data going out of Azure data centres between two virtual networks

From Zone 1*— $0.035 per GB

From Zone 2*— $0.09 per GB

From Zone 3*— $0.16 per GB

Outbound P2S (point-to-site) VPN Data going out of Azure Virtual Network via P2S VPNs Data transferred out of Azure Virtual Networks via the P2S VPNs will be charged at standard data transfer rates.

VPN gateways – Availability Zones

As with all of Azure, we are continuously innovating, upgrading and refining our virtual network gateways to further increase reliability and availability. By adding support for Azure Availability Zones, we bring increased resiliency, scalability and higher availability to virtual network gateways. You can deploy VPN and ExpressRoute gateways in Azure Availability Zones by using the new Zone Redundant Gateway SKUs. This physically and logically separates them into different Availability Zones protecting your on-premises network connectivity to Azure from zone-level failures. The bandwidth thresholds remain the same for the zone-redundant gateways.

Frequently asked questions

  • Yes. A partial hour is billed as a full hour.

  • Yes. Data transfers between two virtual networks are charged at the Inter-virtual network rates noted above. Other data transfers over the VPN connections to your on-premises sites or the Internet in general are charged separately at the regular data transfer rate.

  • A sub-region is the lowest level geo-location that you may select to deploy your applications and associated data. For data transfers (except CDN), the following regions correspond to Zone 1, Zone 2 and Zone 3:

    • Zone 1 – US West, US East, US North Central, US South Central, Europe West, Europe North, France Central, France South
    • Zone 2 – Asia Pacific East, Asia Pacific Southeast, Japan East, Japan West, India South, India West, India Central
    • Zone 3 – Brazil South
  • Similar to standard data transfer charges, inter-virtual network charges are based on the source zone. For example, if data is transferred from a virtual network in US West (Zone 1) to a virtual network in Asia Pacific East (Zone 2), the charge will be based on Zone 1 rates.

  • No. Only data transfer between two different regions will be charged, except with P2S VPNs.
