Azure virtual networks (VNets) connected with a VNet-to-VNet connection can communicate through a secure IPSec/IKE encrypted tunnel using Azure's backbone network without ever traversing the public internet. VNet-to-VNet connections can connect VNets in different regions, Azure subscription, and associated with different Azure Active Directory tenants. VNet-to-VNet connections are ideal for setting up your own geo-replication or synchronization with secure connectivity over Azure's backbone network and for connecting VNets in multi-tier applications with isolation or administrative requirements between tiers.
In this lab, you will establish a VNet-to-VNet connection to allow a virtual machine to access another the virtual machine in a different VNet.
Upon completion of this lab you will be able to:
You should be familiar with:
You can fulfill the prerequisites by completing the Introduction to Azure Virtual Networking Course and the Linux Command Line Byte Session Learning Path.
