Virtual WAN provides a simple, unified, global connectivity and security platform to allow the deployment of large scale branch infrastructure. ExpressRoute provides private connectivity into the Microsoft global network. Announcing a preview of the next service addition to virtual WAN, which will allow customers to access corporate resources that are connected to an ExpressRoute circuit like an on-premises datacenter/headquarters and VNets connected to the ExpressRoute circuit.
Additionally, a feature available only in the Virtual WAN will enable the ability for branches to access resources connected to the ExpressRoute circuit and vice-versa. This will enable a new class of capabilities between branches connected over VPN and sites, VNets, and customer premises connected over ExpressRoute.
