The third day at Ignite was kind a hard to start up, it were long day’s and fun long nights but 2 double espresso kind a pushed me out of my morning dip. Ready to start the day!
Azure High Performance Networking:
This sessions was initially not about new stuff. It’s was more to make things more clear about Azure networking. Near the end there was a lot of new stuff about ExpressRoute though!
Public and Microsoft Peering
Earlier I hear some noise from several people that the Office 365 peering, or Public Peering was to be canceled. But now we know that it’s not cancelled but that the 2 peerings have merged. That makes things simpler, but also more complex, because one of the most issue’s I hear customers talking about is that they don’t want to peer with all Azure or Office 365 services and now there is no choice in those either. It’s either none ore all in! But Microsoft must have heard this complaint because the came up with a new feature for ExpressRoute called Route Filters. With the filters you can choose what routes you want advertise to use only the service you want over the ExpressRoute connection. Nicely done! 🙂
