Azure continuously monitors the latency (speed) of core areas of its network using internal monitoring tools as well as measurements collected by ThousandEyes, a third-party synthetic monitoring service.
Many organizations require both high availability provided by availability zones that are also supported with protection from large-scale phenomena and regional disasters.
