Colt Technology Services said it is offering its German customers dedicated access to Microsoft's new German Azure cloud platform, using data centres in Frankfurt am Main and in Magdeburg. This allows them to use ExpressRoute architecture using private network connections, such as Ethernet or IP VPN ones. The two German Azure data centres ensure business continuity and disaster recovery through constant synchronisation via a private grid that is not connected to the internet, and all data remain within Germany.
