We’re thrilled to announce that Megaport is now a Microsoft Azure ExpressRoute partner!
With Microsoft Azure ExpressRoute enabled, customers in any of Megaports 26 enabled data centres in Australia and New Zealand will be able to establish instant, dedicated, and secure connections to Microsoft Azure. With Megaport, customers can improve performance, get dedicated access to a global ecosystem of cloud services that now includes Microsoft Azure ExpressRoute, and benefit from flexible commercial terms on an award winning SDN based network platform.
Microsoft Azure ExpressRoute is designed for customers who want to build, test, deploy, and migrate workloads from on-premise IT to Microsoft Azure with increased reliability, higher speed, and lower latencies. By working together, Megaport and Microsoft Azure ExpressRoute create a cost-effective solution for data migration, business continuity and disaster recovery, high performance compute applications, and workload portability into the cloud. Megaport customers using Microsoft Azure ExpressRoute can provision services up to 10G instantly and deprovision when it is no longer needed, making it an ideal fit for transferring large volumes of data or time based workloads.
Microsoft Azure ExpressRoute will be available later this quarter and to celebrate Megaport is offering three months free connectivity to Microsoft Azure ExpressRoute for customers that pre-order their service before 15 August, 2015.
