CMC PRODUCTS | MICROSOFT AZURE PEERING SERVICES

CMC is now a Partner for Azure Peering Service in Africa and any of our Enterprise customers can register a Peering Service connection by using the Azure portal and connect to Microsoft public services in a more available and predictable way.

Azure Peering Service is a networking service that enhances customer connectivity to Microsoft cloud services such as Microsoft 365, Dynamics 365, software as a service (SaaS) services, Azure, or any Microsoft services accessible via the public internet.

The Partnership makes use of CMC’s direct, highly available, geo-redundant connections and optimised routing to Microsoft allowing our Enterprise customers to connect to Microsoft Cloud at an edge location in Johannesburg or Cape Town.

As opposed to the CMC Cloud Connect providing Azure ExpressRoute which is a private, dedicated connection from one or multiple customer locations, the Peering Service offers enterprise grade public connectivity across the Microsoft Public network.

Additional
The Azure portal is simple to use and only requires our Azure Enterprise clients to choose CMC and the edge location.

Additional metrics are available in the Azure Portal to measure the latency to the Microsoft network, BGP route monitoring and alerts against leaks and hijacks.

CMC will be announcing additional sites across Africa at a later stage.
