Region expansion: Global VNet Peering

Friday, January 19, 2018

At Ignite, we announced that you can use Global VNet Peering to peer virtual networks across Azure regions. Today, we're expanding to more support regions—enabling direct VM-to-VM connectivity without any public internet involvement or any extra hops.

With just a few clicks, you can use Global VNet Peering to connect virtual networks across Azure regions to share resources or create a global, private peered virtual network. This enables a variety of scenarios such as data replication, disaster recovery, and database failover through private IPs alone.

You can now peer across the following regions:

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

The new regions add to the previously announced regions:

  • US West Central
  • Canada Central
  • US West 2
