connectivity between Azure and AWS? RRS feed

  • Question

  • If we have separate azure cloud ( this would be separate subscriptions ) within the same region.  I am assuming the recommendation would be to connect the disparate azure clouds can be done using a cisco 1000v router would we need to have a express route between these azure clouds?  Note - the azure clouds would be in the same region.   One of the clouds will be the primary with an express route to a colo at equinix.   There is a requirement to connect the azure clouds together.

    Or should we peer the separate azure cloud together instead of using the cisco 1000v router?   The primary cloud has 4-5 vnets and the other clouds can have an equal number of vnets hence thinking a cisco 100v router would be best.   Also if we were going to peer between different clouds would we use a express route between them (the azure clouds are within the same region)?  Or does this connection between the separate azure clouds occur across the Azure network backbone and not require any additional cost other than the cost of peering?   
    If we want to connect a azure cloud and a aws cloud for the purpose of allowing systems to communicate with each other.  For example, the azure cloud has a system A while the AWS cloud has a system B.  We need both systems to communicate with each other.   If we want to have a direct pipe between the clouds how should we do this?   Do you have detailed steps on how to implement this?,... would we peer or would we use a cisco 1000v?   

    Would we need an express route to connect the AWS cloud to the Azure cloud?  

    Also wondering if it might be better to connect the clouds cloud converge at the colocation site equinix.  Note- the colo site is an extension of on-premise to a network/security infrastructure before going to the cloud,... on- premise communication will travel through the colo site before entering the cloud.   Azure>colocation site>A

  • Greetings,

    You can connect Azure and AWS clouds with a VPN tunnel or EXPRESSROUTE and it completely depends on your infrastructure design. If you would like to have a dedicated private network with high availability  then the right choice here is opting for ExpressRoute connection between them. If you are just migrating your workloads from AWS to Azure, then you can go with VPN tunnel. Although this setup goes with out any hassle, yet you have some limitation like adding an extra virtual edge device on AWS side.

    Here is a blog for your reference.
