vXchnge has announced the availability of Microsoft Azure ExpressRoute in its Austin, Minneapolis, Philadelphia, Santa Clara, and St. Louis data centers. Utilizing vXchnge as the platform for high availability data centers, vXchnge customers can now leverage the interconnection solutions by privately connecting through a provider like Megaport to Microsoft Azure, Office 365, and Dynamics 365.

As a neutral interconnection provider, vXchnge provides private, secure, redundant connections and on-demand provisioning for hybrid infrastructure solutions. By integrating Azure ExpressRoute with a network service, customers can establish private high-throughput connections into Azure, Office 365, and Dynamics 365 that bypass the public internet.

“Flexibility in hybrid and multi-cloud solutions is increasingly a requirement among our customers, and private connectivity to Azure ExpressRoute enables this,” said Ernest Sampera, CMO of vXchnge. “Utilizing vXchnge as a data center platform, users of Azure ExpressRoute can now provision secure, reliable cloud connections to complement their hybrid digital transformations with speed and agility.”

ExpressRoute connections with Megaport offer private connectivity, lower latencies, and higher security than typical connections over the public internet. With a dedicated, high-performance Azure ExpressRoute connection, vXchnge customers can implement private connectivity capabilities to build extensible hybrid-cloud strategies.
