ExpressRoute to VNet Gateway name changes – Explained

So if you were checking the list of Azure Updates https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/updates/, you may have come across an interesting update titled “ExpressRoute to VNet Gateway name changes” and within there is a short non-descriptive article and table detailing name changes for the ExpressRoute Gateway.

With no other information, this may have caused you some confusion where service names are changing and if this might have any flow on effects. Well it turns out that this change is primarily to address a billing inconsistency. If you had a VPN Gateway, you may have seen it listed as “ExpressRoute” on your bill. With this change, this has been corrected and now if you have a VPN Gateway or an ExpressRoute Gateway you will see VNet Gateway for both types on the bill.

You can find a link to the update article and an excerpt of the table below.
