SUNeVision unveils Microsoft Azure ExpressRoute in Hong Kong data centre
Data centre provider SUNeVision Holdings Ltd. has announced a new Microsoft Azure ExpressRoute site in Hong Kong.
The Azure ExpressRoute site in Hong Kong, data will be transferred to and from Microsoft Azure within MEGA-i, without going through the public internet, which is designed to enhance security, network and latency performance for its customers, according to the company.
Enterprises will have the ability to directly connect to Azure in MEGA-i, either through an onsite point of presence (PoP) or via telco partners, managed service providers or cloud exchange platforms, which are already available on the company’s MEGA campus.
The company added that Azure users in Hong Kong and in mainland China will be able to establish private access across the regions.
Enterprises from neighbouring countries including Vietnam, Philippines, Cambodia, Myanmar and Brunei will also be able to connect directly at MEGA-i.
“The addition of Azure ExpressRoute on MEGA Campus is a win-win to extend Microsoft Azure reach in the region,” said Raymond Tong, Chief Executive Officer at SUNeVision.
