Redirecting O365 traffic

Robert Cook 1 Reputation point

We have a large network in Azure (no on-prem) which generates a lot of O365 traffic. This currently flows through the firewall and out to the internet but is it possible to implement something like a service endpoint or express route in Azure to direct this traffic direct to O365?

    @RobertCook-1692 ,

    You don't need any specific service to route traffic from Azure to Office 365. It by default takes Msn network. Your traffic will not leave MSN network to reach Office 365 destination if the source is Azure VM.

    You can do a tracert from the VM to see the hops if you wanted to be sure.
