PacketFabric is to provide private network connectivity to Microsoft for its customers in the US using Azure ExpressRoute.

The connectivity-as-a-service (CaaS) company says the service will be available from more than 150 locations.

"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. "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."

The California-based company says its dedicated cloud connectivity product, PacketCOR, will allow its customers to establish direct, secure connections to cloud service products, including Azure ExpressRoute.

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

PacketFabric says it is available in more than 150 colocation facilities in 17 US markets.
