General availability: Global VNet Peering

Friday, March 30, 2018

Global VNet Peering is now generally available.

Global VNet Peering enables resources in your virtual network to communicate across Azure regions privately through the Microsoft backbone. VMs across virtual networks can 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

You can now peer across the following regions:

  • Korea South
  • UK South
  • UK West
  • Canada East
  • India South
  • India Central
  • India West
  • US West Central
  • Canada Central
