New York, NY (PRWEB) September 21, 2016
NexGen Networks, the premier provider of fiber optic-based network solutions to the world’s top financial services firms and global enterprises, has announced a new partnership agreement with Microsoft Online Services to allow connections from NexGen’s global network into the Windows Azure cloud. The partnership will provide NexGen customers with direct private network connectivity to Microsoft Online Services via Microsoft ExpressRoute Meet-Me Locations, in lieu of having their traffic routed over the public Internet. This will be known as NexGen Networks Direct Connect for Microsoft Azure Expressroute.
“This partnership will allow our clients to take full advantage of the power and flexibility of cloud computing while enhancing security and providing reliable, high-throughput, low-latency connections to Microsoft Online Services,” says NexGen’s Vice President Jeffrey Barth. “Our clients can operate in a truly global fashion while maintaining the security and privacy of a local connection.”
ExpressRoute is a set of Microsoft technologies, capabilities and services that are offered to Microsoft Online Services users seeking direct network connectivity over a private network. By allowing customers to separate their internal applications from the public internet, ExpressRoute provides a higher standard of security and ensures a more consistent user experience through a powerful private connection. NexGen Networks clients who take advantage of the service can thus extend their most critical internal applications around the global NexGen Network at the maximum speed, security, and availability.
