How long does it take to go from West US to UK and back?
I have been asking myself this question for a while and now it’s time to find out.
Azure supports VNET peering between regions in selected datacenters. I want to build a global network and look at which performance you get from this feature.
3 VM’s and 3 VNET’s
Located in these datacenters:
- UK South
- West US 2
- India South
Before a could add the vnet peering I had to register for the preview feature:
And then I added VNET peering between all VNET’s (Both directions)
UK – US
UK – India
US – UK
US – India
India – UK
India – US
I then logged in to my VM’s and send Ping commands
I have created a global spanning VNET across the globe in less than 1 hour. (I’m impressed 🙂 )
Ping times are as follows:
UK – US – 141ms
UK – India – 132ms
US – UK – 142ms
US – India – 201ms
India – UK – 133ms
India – US – 201ms
Currently VNET peering between regions is in Public preview and only available in selected datacenters.
I want to measure the bandwidth provided on the geolinks.
I want to look into the costs associated with building this.
