Outbound data transfer from Azure

      Last updated April 20, 2020

    Fastly has integrated a local circuit with Microsoft Azure ExpressRoute Direct. Once you’ve signed up for Fastly services and configured them correctly, outbound data transfers from the appropriate Azure regions to Fastly will use this local circuit when configured with Fastly shielding.

    To configure your Azure origin to use this direct connectivity, choose one of the following combinations for your Azure service region and its associated shielding location when configuring your Fastly service:

    For this Azure service region … Choose this shielding location …
    East US Ashburn (BWI)
    West Europe Amsterdam (AMS)

    Because Fastly has purchased this local circuit from Microsoft, Microsoft does not apply outbound data transfer rates to traffic traveling over it. Use of this local circuit should work with Azure services like Container Instances, Functions, and Media Services, as well as Blob Storage.
