Service Description

The connection path from a client to Microsoft Azure normally includes a certain section on the public Internet. This results in access times being influenced by other Internet traffic. To avoid this, a private network connection can be set up from Azure data centers to the customer's local compute resources via ExpressRoute. This can significantly increase the throughput, stability, and reliability of connections to Azure.
