SANTA CLARA, Calif.--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--Console Connect, a leading provider of global direct connect solutions, today announced its integration with Microsoft Azure ExpressRoute, Microsoft’s private connection solution for the Microsoft Cloud. The integration allows Microsoft customers to connect securely and reliably to their cloud environments from more locations via the Console Platform. Azure ExpressRoute via the Console Platform is currently available for connections between Console’s 170 PoPs and Azure regions.
“As CIOs look to secure their cloud environments, the networks on which they connect to the cloud are coming under increasing scrutiny. Opening up more opportunities for secure, predictable direct connections will help ensure safer cloud deployments as adoption continues to rise.”
“Integrating the Console Platform with Microsoft Azure ExpressRoute brings simple, single-click interconnection to Azure customers around the world,” said Jef Graham, CEO, Console Connect. “As CIOs look to secure their cloud environments, the networks on which they connect to the cloud are coming under increasing scrutiny. Opening up more opportunities for secure, predictable direct connections will help ensure safer cloud deployments as adoption continues to rise.”
Console Connect’s integration with Azure ExpressRoute allows Azure customers to establish private connections to the Microsoft cloud in more locations. Currently, the integration enables secure interconnections to be set up between any Console node, and Azure ExpressRoute locations in Silicon Valley, CA; Los Angeles, CA; Ashburn, VA; Chicago, IL; Dallas, TX; Toronto, Canada; and London, UK.
The Console Platform removes the complexity of interconnection, allowing enterprises to establish private, secure and reliable connections with just a single click. Previous interconnection solutions required extensive investment of time, capital and network engineering for each direct connection to be established, making it an unrealistic alternative to the increasingly dangerous public internet. But, by automating the interconnection process through to layer 3, Console Connect has opened the door for IT teams to embrace the technology and end their reliance on the public internet for business-critical applications.
