Region expansion: Global VNet Peering
Posted on 18 April 2018
Global VNet Peering is now generally available in four additional regions: Europe West, US East 2, Asia South East, and Central US.
Global VNet Peering enables resources in your virtual network to communicate across Azure regions privately through the Microsoft backbone. Resources communicate directly, without gateways, extra hops, or transit over the public internet. This allows a high-bandwidth, low-latency connection across peered virtual networks in different regions.
With just a couple of clicks, you can use Global VNet Peering to share resources within a global, private network. You can then easily replicate data across regions for redundancy and disaster recovery. For more information, refer to our overview page, detailed documentation, and pricing.

- Americas: West Central US (Wyoming), West US 2 (Washington), Central US (Iowa), US East 2 (Virginia), Canada Central (Toronto), Canada East (Quebec City)
- Asia Pacific: Southeast Asia (Singapore) Korea South (Buscan), South India (Chennai), Central India (Pune), West India (Mumbai)
