Delivering unmatched access to Microsoft Azure via Microsoft Azure ExpressRoute
London, UNITED KINGDOM – 30 September 2015 – euNetworks, a unique bandwidth infrastructure provider, today announced its collaboration with Microsoft Azure, enabling direct access to Microsoft Azure for clients via Microsoft Azure ExpressRoute.

euNetworks delivers cloud connectivity with its Cloud Connect solution, offering connectivity through a private network in preference to using the Internet. Azure ExpressRoute connections in place with this new relationship do not go over the public Internet and offer more reliability (improved SLA), a lower committed latency and higher security as a result.
