BT to provide managed services for new Microsoft Azure virtual WAN
New services will be available directly from BT and through the Microsoft Azure Marketplace
BT is to offer a range of new managed network services for multinational customers deploying applications and IT services in Microsoft Azure.
This comes on the back of an announcement naming BT as one of the first partners of the new Azure Networking Managed Services Provider programme launched today by Microsoft.
“BT’s new suite of Azure Networking managed services will help customers consume cloud services without barriers. It will show them where they are on their intelligent enterprise cloud journey and create the right cloud architecture to deliver the agility and flexibility they need,” said Maria Grazia Pecorari, managing director, strategy & digital solutions at BT’s Global unit.
The new managed Azure Networking services include consultancy, managed cloud security and managed services for Azure Virtual Wide Area Networking (WAN) as well as Azure ExpressRoute connectivity deep into the cloud. They will be available directly from BT and through the Microsoft Azure Marketplace.
By providing end-to-end visibility and management of hybrid infrastructures spanning branches, WAN and multi-cloud hybrid environments, BT can help customers increase automation, lower risks and accelerate adoption of cloud services with better security.
