Microsoft has recently announced “ExpressRoute” for their Azure stack! This is great news for security centric partners needed to ensure private access to the service hosted on Azure.
If you utilize a network service provider that supports ExpressRoute connections, your connection can even bypass the public internet entirely!
I am personally excited to see where this technology goes, and how many providers start to pick it up.
Please note, even if your carrier does not support ExpressRoute directly, you can still utilize the ExpressRoute service!
