There is growing demand for rapid connectivity to top cloud services like Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud and Amazon Web Services (AWS). To meet this need, connectivity service providers are responding by implementing new ways for their customers to access these core services.

In one example, PacketFabric has announced it will provide network connectivity to Microsoft using Azure ExpressRoute from any of its 150+ on-net locations across the U.S. Packet Fabric will accomplish this using PacketCOR, the company’s dedicated cloud connectivity solution that allows customers to establish secure and direct connections to a variety of leading cloud services.

“We’ve seen a lot of demand for connectivity to Microsoft Azure from our enterprise customers,” said Jezzibell Gilmore, SVP of Business Development at PacketFabric, which offers businesses a highly scalable Connectivity-as-a-Service (CaaS) platform. “Our integration with Microsoft for connectivity to ExpressRoute will offer our customers private, secure access to Azure for business-critical uses such as data migration, disaster recovery, and high-performance cloud computing.”

“We’re pleased to add PacketFabric as an option for companies to connect to Microsoft Azure through Azure ExpressRoute,” added Ross Ortega, Partner PM Manager of Azure Networking. “PacketFabric customers will benefit from the productivity, intelligence and hybrid capabilities of Azure, supporting our mutual customers in their cloud journey.”

PacketFabric is now available in more than 150 data centers across the U.S., delivering highly-scalable, automated and reliable connectivity across any two or more points on its fabric.
