Green Mountain, operator of some of the world’s greenest data centers, has announced it has been selected as a Microsoft Azure ExpressRoute partner connecting in Stavanger. “This enables our clients to extend their on-premises networks into the Microsoft Azure cloud over a private connection,” says CEO, Tor Kristian Gyland.
Azure ExpressRoute connections bypass the public Internet and offer more reliability, faster speeds, predictable latencies and data privacy. “For latency sensitive applications this will mean improved performance and user experience.” says CSO, Svein Atle Hagaseth. “Green Mountain is one of the first data centers in Norway to be operational with this solution. This will greatly benefit all of our current and prospective clients who are utilizing Microsoft Azure cloud services.”
An increasing number of companies deploying a hybrid cloud strategy has driven a need for a private connection between public cloud providers and a company’s data centres – Azure ExpressRoute is an answer to these requirements.
With a fast and reliable connection to Azure this solution is well-suited for high availability scenarios including business continuity replication, periodic data transfer, emergency recovery and so forth. As an Azure ExpressRoute partner Green Mountain can simplify the connection to Azure for Norwegian clients and secure a resilient, high-speed, low-cost connection.
“Inclusion into the Microsoft Azure ExpressRoute program strengthens our position as one of the most connected data centres on the west-coast of Norway and one of the most connected colocations in the Nordic region,” Gyland concludes.
