Since I am working with Azure one of biggest problem was the connection across subscriptions. Although you can use several features to achieve this state such as Site-To-Site VPN, vNet-To-vNet peering, they have some serious limitations.
From my side the most relevant is vNet-To-vNet peering whose biggest limitations the regions where you can make a connection between two subscriptions. I mean You weren’t able to create without any difficulties VNet peering between subscriptions in US and Europe. Additionally You cannot create VNet peering between a subscription in AzureCloud and a subscription in AzureGermany cloud.
Luckily the good news was arrived on end of this March from Microsoft side: Global VNet Peering is now generally available.
This is awesome… 🙂
This was a huge missing feature and I feel this is a beginning of a bright future where we do not need to create VPN connection – which is far expensive than VNet peering – between our worldwide subscriptions.
Of course at the moment this feature is available in some regions but I am sure this list will be expanded soon.
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
- US West 2
