As companies build hybrid cloud environments, many customers are looking for a seamless bridge between public cloud providers and physical data centers. Microsoft has extended its partnership with Equinix to help close that gap by offering Microsoft Azure ExpressRoute in 16 markets globally, spanning four continents.
ExpressRoute is designed to help make the most of on-premises investments by extending a company’s network beyond their existing data centers and enterprise IT infrastructure in a cost-effective and more secure way.
Private access, intelligent interconnection capabilities and a choice of private network connectivity options make Microsoft Azure appear as seamless extension to a physical datacenter, providing the scale, flexibility and economics of cloud.
Head over to the Windows Azure blog to find out more about this extended partnership with Equinix.
