Could your business operations improve with Blaze Networks?

Microsoft Azure

Microsoft Azure Cloud Services

Many organisations choose to use AZURE for their cloud hosting requirements. Built using Microsoft’s $15 Billion investment into Datacentre Infrastructure which spans the globe, Azure is one of the largest cloud platforms in the world. For companies who wish to use the Azure platform, Blaze can act as your service provider – offering Azure hosting packages and the appropriate network connections.

In addition to offering Azure hosting packages at very competitive rates, Blaze Networks can provide Microsoft ExpressRoute, a direct peering connection to the Azure platform.

Microsoft ExpressRoute

Blaze has established direct (and resilient) network links to Azure, thereby avoiding passing any network traffic over the public internet. 

As Blaze Networks are also an Internet Service Provider (ISP) we can provide Azure customers with ExpressRoute – a direct connection into Microsoft’s Network from own Blaze Private Core Network.  This offers a fast, low latency, secure and reliable connection directly into Microsoft’s Azure network.

ExpressRoute lets you extend your on-premises networks into the Microsoft cloud over a private connection facilitated by a connectivity provider. With ExpressRoute, you can establish connections to Microsoft cloud services, such as Microsoft Azure and Microsoft 365 Business.

ExpressRoute connections do not go over the public Internet. This allows ExpressRoute connections to offer more reliability, faster speeds, consistent latencies, and higher security than typical connections over the Internet.

Key benefits of ExpressRoute:

  • Layer 3 connectivity between your on-premises network and the Microsoft Cloud through Blaze Networks.
  • Dynamic routing between your network and Microsoft via BGP.
  • Built-in redundancy in every peering location for higher reliability.
  • Connection uptime SLA.
  • QoS support for Skype for Business and Microsoft Teams.

Blaze provide the flexibility to include any combination of hosted environments in your own Private SD-WAN, thereby ensuring a very high level of security across your network as well as delivering operational flexibility.
