Interxion Holding has become a Microsoft Global Azure ExpressRoute EXP partner.
Through the addition of ExpressRoute, via Interxion’s Cloud Connect platform, enterprises and service providers can now establish security-enhanced, high performance, low latency connections to Azure making Interxion’s facilities the ideal location to build hybrid cloud solutions.
Research from IDG Connect has shown that whilst organisations want to benefit from the flexibility, scalability and cost savings of the public cloud, they are uneasy about migrating further workloads due to concerns around connectivity, security and application performance. Significantly, respondents stated they would move 69% more workloads to the cloud if connectivity and security issues were resolved.
“Our collaboration with Interxion provides our joint customers new options to benefit from the efficiencies of hybrid cloud,” said Ross Ortega, Microsoft Azure, Networking Product Management. “Interxion is a strong, established data centre provider in Europe and through this relationship we are able to bring the benefits of Microsoft Cloud Services to more partners and customers.”
Interxion Ireland MD Tanya Duncan commented: “Being a Microsoft Azure ExpressRoute EXP Partner is great news for our customers in Dublin. It means that Interxion can more effectively support their hybrid cloud developments across Europe based on the Microsoft Azure cloud platform.”
