Equinix and Microsoft have collaborated to help businesses connect on-premise IT infrastructure with Azure cloud via a private network. The tie-up comes as enterprises seeking a hybrid cloud strategy want a secure and private connection between public cloud services and their in-house datacentres.

Businesses are demanding private and secure connections to the cloud to ensure optimal performance and scalability, according to analysts at research firm IDC.

“On-site applications, such as virtual desktops and customer relationship management (CRM), are migrating to the cloud, alongside big data and Internet of Things (IoT) business processes. As a result, companies are looking for cloud connectivity alternatives that offer more consistent performance than the public Internet can provide,” said Melanie Posey, research vice-president at IDC.

Through the partnership, Equinix will allow data centre customers to directly connect to Microsoft Azure cloud services and fully integrate cloud services and internal applications to build hybrid clouds. The partnership makes Equinix the first data centre provider to bring Microsoft Azure Express Route service to enterprises at 16 countries.
