The Azure VMware Solution private cloud connects to the Azure fabric through an ExpressRoute, that ExpressRoute comes bundled with the Azure VMware Solution. This micro-architecture will guide connecting the Azure VMware Solution private cloud to the Azure fabric via this internal ExpressRoute. After this configuration step, the AVS vCenter will be accessible from the vNet where the ExpressRoute terminates.
The AVS ExpressRoute is bundled part of the private cloud cost, therefore no egress/ingress charges apply between AVS and the vNet where the ExpressRoute terminates.
Bandwidth can get up to 25 gbps, depending on the size and configuration of the ExpressRoute gateway.
Connect the AVS ExpressRoute up to 10 different virtual network gateways. You may choose to do this when there are Azure services located in multiple Azure regions.
When the AVS private cloud is connected to the vNet w/ the ExpressRoute all normal Azure routing/networking applies to any ExpressRoute connected sites.
The AVS private cloud and the ExpressRoute Gateway DO NOT need to be in the same Azure region.
There are automation options to complete this step in-lieu of the manual steps outlined below;
