The Amsterdam Internet Exchange (AMS-IX) has added Microsoft Azure Peering Service to its cloud portfolio. This means that companies and organisations connected to the exchange will be able get high-quality connections to Microsoft cloud services like Azure and Microsoft 365. 

With the deal, AMS-IX users who use the Microsoft service will connect directly to the Global Microsoft Network via a port on the AMS-IX platform. Their traffic will be prioritised on the Global Microsoft Network and get routed to the nearest Edge PoP on the Microsoft Network, with Maps allowing for route analysis and traffic insights. AMS-IX said the system will enable customers to optimise their Microsoft traffic routing.
