Direct, Secure Connections

Microsoft Azure ExpressRoute provides a private, dedicated, high-throughput network connection between Microsoft Azure data centers and on-premises IT environments. ExpressRoute connections bypass the public Internet and offer more reliability, faster speeds, lower latencies and higher security. ExpressRoute connections that transfer data between on-premises and Azure can also yield significant cost benefits.

Choose multiple connection speeds:

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

Global Availability

Microsoft Azure ExpressRoute is available in 16 global locations: Atlanta, Chicago, Dallas, Los Angeles, New York, Sao Paulo, Seattle, Silicon Valley, Washington DC, Amsterdam, London, Hong Kong, Melbourne, Singapore, Sydney, Tokyo and Osaka* (*Coming in 2015).
