Microsoft Azure Germany available at e-shelter
Frankfurt am Main, 2016, 11th of May – e-shelter, leading data center operator in Europe and an NTT Communications group company, announced today that Microsoft Azure Germany cloud services will be accessible to customers in e-shelter facilities via Microsoft Azure ExpressRoute. At the same time, e-shelter will be launching its e-connect platform.
In the future customers will have secure, private access to other services in the Microsoft Cloud via Azure ExpressRoute through e-shelter.
With the new e-connect service platform, e-shelter customers are now able to use carrier-neutral, flexible and scalable connectivity to connect to Microsoft Azure. e-connect is based on a dedicated proprietary network infrastructure operated by e-shelter, and does not use the public Internet. Customers will therefore benefit from greater reliability, higher speeds, lower latencies and better security than classical Internet connections.

“With the development of the Internet, mobile computing and Big Data, the expectations of users and customers have changed. Use of business cloud services is a driver of this digital transformation, and has become a corporate reality. Through our relationship with Microsoft we are now closer to the cloud, and our customers thus receive all services from a single source. Being located in Germany furthermore guarantees data security according to German law,” explains Toan Nguyen, Director Business Development & Cloud Platform of e-shelter. “Combined with our e-connect service portfolio, we are able to connect our customers across different locations and reliably into the world of the hybrid cloud.”
