Overall Satisfaction with Azure Virtual WAN

As I am working as a consultant in the Oil and gas domain in my current organization, we are using Azure Virtual WAN as our primary Cloud provider. So there are a Lot of Vnets in multiple locations, we are using Azure Virtual WAN for handling Site to Site VPN Connectivity, Routing, Intracloud connectivity, and a lot more communications between multiple sites.
  • It offers a seamless experience while connecting Virtual networks and Workloads via Azure Hub.
  • Lot of connectivity options present - site to site VPN/Express route etc.
  • Very easy connectivity and migration with on-premise sites and Azure Hub.
  • Learning and managing Azure Virtual WAN has quite a steep learning curve.
  • Flexibility and solutions are limited to the available feature set compared to a classic hub and spoke.
  • Sometimes can cost very high if not used efficiently.
  • Provides a rich feature set and automation.
  • All in one solution/service provided by Azure for connectivity, security, and monitoring.
  • Easy Upscaling and downscaling of the environment without any downtime.
  • With Azure Virtual WAN we were able to centralize our dysfunctional network infrastructure.
  • The cost was effectively decreased as we were using Pay-as-yo-go model.
  • As this provides very good troubleshooting, we were able to solve the issues faster which resulted in a Good SLA, and helped in getting more projects from the customer.
As we were already using Azure as a cloud platform, it was easy setting up a Virtual WAN inside Azure as users/developers and DevOps engineers were familiar with the user interface and functioning as compared to going to some other portal for just the VWAN solution. The umbrella of features provided by Azure Virtual WAN made it the right choice for our infrastructure.

Azure Virtual WAN is a diverse connectivity service that brings together networking, connectivity, security, monitoring, and routing features. It provides a centralized console for the management of our network backbone. Earlier our network connectivity options were limited and disoriented but after implementing Azure Virtual WAN, we were able to build a Global network backbone with managed points of presence all across the globe.
