Express Route

Express Route

ExpressRoute gives you a high-performance and secure connection direct from your infrastructure to Azure data centres. ExpressRoute connections do not use the public internet so you’ll get better reliability, faster speeds and lower latencies than typical internet connections.

ExpressRoute connections to Azure allow you to create your own private cloud environment, giving you extra security and peace of mind when transferring data between your on-premises systems and Azure. In some cases, ExpressRoute can also deliver significant cost savings for large data transfers compared to other connectivity options.

With our comprehensive provisioning services, Cloud Direct can manage the setup and management of your Azure services, connectivity and ExpressRoute connections. As ExpressRoute is so flexible, you can scale your provision up and down on demand to suit your needs.
