Microsoft Azure

DIRECT CONNECTIONS TO MICROSOFT AZURE

Early adopters of cloud computing used the Internet to reach their platforms. But with more business critical data and workloads moving to the cloud, having a fast and predictable connection is quickly becoming a requirement for many companies.

WHAT NL-IX CAN DO FOR YOU

Most cloud providers have options for direct connections to their compute platforms at selected locations. But you may not have a presence in the same datacentre, city or even country. By connecting our network to those cloud providers we can make those direct connections available to you in any of the sites we have a presence in.

MICROSOFT AZURE EXPRESSROUTE

ExpressRoute is an Azure service that lets you create private connections between Microsoft datacenters and infrastructure that’s on your premises or in a colocation facility. ExpressRoute connections do not go over the public Internet, and offer higher security, reliability and speeds with lower latencies than typical connections over the Internet. In some cases, using ExpressRoute connections to transfer data between on-premises devices and Azure can yield significant cost benefits. With NL-ix's cloud portfolio we can extend Microsoft's ExpressRoute to a location of your choice.
