Azure Storage—Routing preferences now available for preview
Published date: May 19, 2020
Routing preferences for Azure Storage is now available for preview in France South, North Central US, and the West Central US regions.
Configure a routing preference to direct network traffic for the default public endpoint of your Storage account using the Microsoft global network or using the public internet. Optimize for premium network performance by using the Microsoft global network, which delivers low-latency path selection with high reliability and routes traffic through the point-of-presence closest to the client. Alternatively, route traffic through the point-of-presence closest to your storage account to lower network costs and minimize traversal over the Microsoft global network.
Routing configuration options for your Storage account also enable you to publish additional route-specific endpoints. Use these new public endpoints to override the routing preference specified for the default public endpoint by expliciting routing traffic over a desired path.
