Accessing Azure Redis in a vNet in different regions

I setup Azure redis in a vNet in centralUS and our application in a vNet in CentralUS. Our application uses redis for session state. I also setup our application in eastUS within a vNet and tried accessing the Azure Redis in centralUS.

I read somewhere in the Microsoft documentation that you can't access Azure Redis in a vNet across regions. I've tested it out and I'm unable to access the azure redis cache in centralUS from our application in eastUS. Is anyone aware of a workaround or if Microsoft is going to allow accessing Redis in a vNet from different regions in the near future?

PS. I did vnet peering between the app in eastUS and Redis in centralUS.

Thanks

    @Rick Tuck Welcome to Microsoft Q&A forums and thank you for your interest in Azure cache for Redis.

    Yes, your observation is correct.
    The client(s) should be in the same VNET as the Redis cache. This limitation is documented here
