NextDC Sydney gets Microsoft Azure ExpressRoute

Sydney-based NextDC clients could soon access Microsoft Azure services more directly, predictably and securely via ExpressRoute.

The S1 Sydney data centre is NextDC’s third to receive ExpressRoute infrastructure and will see the company “offer an enhanced level of support for Microsoft Azure ... providing customers with the most direct, high-performance, low-latency connections which will significantly improve the customer connectivity experience”, NextDC Chief Customer Officer and Executive Vice President of Technology David Dzienciol said.

Microsoft’s ExpressRoute is accessed via NextDC’s connectivity platform, Axon, which offers private and dedicated connectivity to Azure and allows organisations to “build and scale flexible hybrid environments”, NextDC explained. It also delivers virtual connections to public cloud platforms and supports “network and geographically redundant designs which are aligned to Microsoft best practices”, the data-centre-as-a-service provider said.
