Question:

Most customers now a days are going to have more than one ISP and need a redundant connection to their Azure .  Dynamic failover capabilities are surely a must for most organizations.  Does Azure support redundant Site to Site VPN connections?

Answer:

Yes Azure now supports redundant Site to Site VPNs.  Here is the link to the article that discusses how to setup redundant VPNs:

https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/documentation/articles/vpn-gateway-bgp-overview/

A Couple of the FAQs I want to point out:

Is BGP supported on all Azure VPN Gateway SKUs?

No, BGP is supported on Azure Standard and HighPerformance VPN gateways. Basic SKU is NOT supported.

Can I use BGP with Azure Policy-Based VPN gateways?

No, BGP is supported on Route-Based VPN gateways only.

 

One last thing to add:

Here is a link that talks about the different VPN Gateway types:  https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/pricing/details/vpn-gateway/

Here is the link that describes the maximum throughput per gateway SKU: https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/documentation/articles/vpn-gateway-about-vpngateways/ 

 

 

Until next time,

 

Rob
