Swisscom expands use of Microsoft Cloud globally and in Switzerland


In response to the rapidly growing demand for public cloud solutions, Swisscom and Microsoft Switzerland are intensifying their partnership. Swisscom is now offering its customers managed public cloud services delivered via Microsoft’s global infrastructure and the new Swiss cloud regions. Swisscom will also be the first Swiss telco-provider to offer ExpressRoute, a secure, highly available, high-performance and private connection to Microsoft Cloud services.

The long-standing cooperation model with Microsoft Switzerland ensures that Swisscom, as a full-service provider, can build up a broad Managed Services Portfolio on the Microsoft cloud. Thanks to this portfolio and the expanded possibilities of the Azure Cloud platform in the areas of scalability, economy of scale and innovation, Swisscom is excellently positioned to accompany its existing and new customers into the future.

“The close partnership with Microsoft Switzerland is an essential aspect for the further development of our cloud strategy. This promotes access to innovative technologies that we can offer combined with our services on the market”, says Urs Lehner, Head of Swisscom Business Customers. “The offer enables small and large companies to use the latest technologies simply and securely in order to organise their IT more efficiently and grow with new business models.”
