Features and Benefits

  • Equinix global footprint, direct connection services and ExpressRoute allow you to access Azure and Office 365 through our data centres securely and with low latency for better application performance of Office 365’s collaboration tools like Skype for Business (formerly Lync), SharePoint, and Yammer.
  • Choose your preferred technology solution (using native Ethernet or IP), or let Equinix help set up and manage it for you.
  • Equinix private access enables Microsoft Azure to deliver the unique capabilities of hybrid cloud, including application services, production and identity management, data and backup and recovery services, and infrastructure services such as virtual networks and traffic management.
  • Seamless, automated provisioning using integrated API capabilities so you can set up virtual connectivity and Azure services in near real time.
  • Redundant and diverse interconnectivity paths to and from the Microsoft Azure cloud for true reliability.

Direct, Secure Connections

Microsoft Azure ExpressRoute provides a private, dedicated, high-throughput network connection between Microsoft Azure data centres and on-premises IT environments. ExpressRoute connections bypass the public Internet and offer more reliability, faster speeds, lower latencies and superior data privacy and security. ExpressRoute connections that transfer data between on-premises and Azure can also help drive down operating costs while improving quality of experience (QoE) for latency sensitive applications like Microsoft Lync/Skype and SharePoint/Yammer.


Multiple connection speeds:

  • Fibre-optic cross connects that provide either 1- or 10-gigabits per second connections
  • Virtual connections via the Equinix Cloud Exchange™ in a scalable range, including 200M, 500M, or 1G virtual connections over 1G/10G ports
