UK data center services provider Telehouse says that Microsoft has chosen the Telehouse London Docklands Data Centre campus as a second Microsoft Azure ExpressRoute location in the city. The data center will offer customers a low-latency, dedicated path to Microsoft's cloud services.

The Microsoft Azure ExpressRoute service connects customers to Microsoft's cloud services, including Microsoft Azure and Microsoft Dynamics. A private connection to Microsoft Azure ExpressRoute provides predictable performance for enterprises executing hybrid cloud strategies for their mission-critical workloads, says Telehouse.

"More and more enterprises are seeking resilient, cost-effective, and flexible solutions for managing their hybrid IT infrastructure. We are pleased to be able to meet the demands of customers by offering this private connection to Microsoft Azure ExpressRoute in our London data centres," said Ken Sakai, Telehouse managing director.

Telehouse, the data center subsidiary of Japanese corporation KDDI, says it serves more than 3,000 corporations around the world via its data centers, connectivity, and managed ICT offerings (see, for example, "Telehouse to extend its partner alliance with Atlantic Metro" and "ADVA supplies FSP 3000 CloudConnect to Telehouse for metro network data needs").
