What is Virtual Network Peering in Azure?
One of the greatest benefits of moving an organization's production environment to the public cloud is the ability to create redundancy by spanning multiple locations in multiple virtual networks within Azure. This benefit mitigates the risk of data outages or exposure by ensuring that if one location sustained an outage or data loss, the organization could simply run from the other location.
One of the critical requirements here as we look to facilitate multiple Azure networks communicating with one another is the use of virtual network peering. Virtual Network Peering or VNet Peer Connection allows two-segmented Azure networks to communicate with one another. Once established, this connection between networks can be seen as one single network facilitating communication seamlessly between locations.
