Azure ExpressRoute is a really cool and important feature – #Microsoft, #Azure, #ExpressRoute

Everyone talks about the “cloud” and how you can leverage all the benefits or a public, private or hybrid cloud model. And one challenge and huge risks that enterprises see with moving into a public cloud like Azure is the dependency to the public Internet.

Is the connection secure, stable, available and how can you determine that I have the connectivity between my on-premise stuff and Azure..?

It’s here where I think that Microsoft really has made a HUGE step towards getting more traction with the larger enterprises with the new ExpressRoute feature! Now you can get your own dedicated connection to Azure through it’s partner network of service providers like AT&T and Verizon etc.!

TechnicalOverview

Microsoft Azure ExpressRoute lets you create private connections between Azure datacenters and infrastructure that’s on your premises or in a co-location environment. With ExpressRoute, you can establish connections to Azure at an ExpressRoute partner co-location facility or directly connect to Azure from your existing WAN network (such as a MPLS VPN provided by a Network Service Provider). 

ExpressRoute connections do not go over the public Internet. ExpressRoute connections offer higher security, more reliability, faster speeds and lower latencies than typical connections over the Internet. In some cases, using ExpressRoute connections to transfer data between on-premises and Azure can also yield significant cost benefits. Use ExpressRoute to extend your network to Azure and unlock hybrid IT scenarios. See the ExpressRoute FAQ for more details.

I think that Microsoft for sure is the main player when it comes to attracting more and more companies towards public and hybrid cloud adoption!
