This direct, private connection enables a secure, high capacity, high performance connection to AWS cloud solutions. For more information, contact the Cologix Team or visit the AWS website

Microsoft Azure ExpressRoute
Microsoft Azure ExpressRoute lets you extend your on-premises networks into the Microsoft cloud over a dedicated private connection facilitated by a connectivity provider. ExpressRoute connections do not go over the public Internet providing unique benefits: 1.) Greater security and privacy via private connections 2.) Lower latency by traversing shortest path to the Microsoft Cloud 3.) Predictability & optimized speed when leveraging ExpressRoute.
