This week is Microsoft Build 2018, our premiere event of the year for our gifted developer audience. With a strong appetite for technology and a desire to learn and immerse themselves in new ways to build and create cloud applications, thousands of software professionals and coders are coming to Seattle this week. We’d like to take this opportunity to let you know about new networking services we have launched as well as enhancements we have made.
As businesses of all sizes increasingly move their mission-critical workloads to Azure, new opportunities arise to simplify the overall network experience, from security and management over monitoring to key areas such as reliability and performance. Launching new services such as DDoS, VNet access to Azure services, zone-aware Application Gateways, a new global scale CDN offering, along with a new and super-fast Load Balancer, we continue to enhance the networking capabilities of Azure and more importantly develop new services and technologies to help customers run, manage, and achieve more when running their most demanding workloads.
