Santa Clara, CA – Console, the enterprise software and interconnection platform that is changing the way businesses directly connect to their customers, vendors, and partners, today announced that Microsoft has joined its revolutionary platform. The collaboration provides enterprises globally with direct access to Azure through the Console platform, bypassing the public Internet and providing improved security and performance.
“Historically, security, performance and complexity concerns have always been barriers to enterprise cloud deployment. By enabling direct interconnection with Azure, the Console platform expels this notion, allowing our users to securely and directly connect to Azure with a click of a button,” says Al Burgio, CEO of Console Inc. “Our revolutionary Console platform, combined with Microsoft’s powerful cloud offerings, enable enterprises to realize the tangible business benefits of the cloud faster and easier than ever before.”
The Console platform provides a security-enhanced, simple, and faster way for companies across the globe to directly connect to business-critical cloud providers, SaaS providers, and partners. Azure ExpressRoute provides direct access to Azure through the Console platform, so customers can create private connections between their offices or data centers and Azure, bypassing the public Internet. These direct connections via the Console platform provide improved security, faster speeds, and lower latency.
“Our collaboration with Console will expand the number of enterprises able to directly access Microsoft Azure through Azure ExpressRoute,” says Ross Ortega, Principal Product Manager, Networking, Microsoft Azure. “With Console’s direct connections customers can quickly provision and access Microsoft cloud services with better predictability, privacy, and performance.”
