Microsoft (AS 8075) is a new member at NaMeX. The renowned US company, leader in the industries of software developing, gaming and cloud computing, has chosen Rome to be one of its edge sites.
What is then an edge site? They are strategically placed sites which dramatically accelerate the performance of cloud-based services. In fact, latency might be an important issue that can be an obstacle to cloud adoption or migration.
High latency is usually caused by network infrastructures that are not designed to be efficient for a global cloud market. Through the deployment of edge sites, Microsoft can provide an enhanced user experience while accessing apps, content, or services such as Azure and Office 365 on the Microsoft global network.
Edges optimize network performance through local access points to and from the vast Microsoft global network, in many cases providing up to 10x the acceleration to access and consume cloud-based content and services from Microsoft.
The arrival of such an important player in Rome, confirms the fact that NaMeX is growing consistently and that it is an essential point of presence for the delivery of services with the highest quality in the whole Italian territory and specifically in the central and southern regions.
