EdgeConneX, a pioneer in global hyperlocal to hyperscale data center solutions, announced that Megaport, a leading network as a service (NaaS) provider, is expanding its software-defined network (SDN) to three EdgeConneX data centers, including Atlanta02, Detroit, and Miami02.
This multi-city deployment accelerates hybrid cloud and multi-cloud capabilities for EdgeConneX customers across these key markets.
The power of the Megaport network is that organizations can deploy private point-to-point connectivity between any location on Megaport’s global network, including on-demand access to the leading global cloud providers from the SDN platform.
Now in nine EdgeConneX data centers globally, customers can avoid the public internet and establish secure, direct, and dedicated connections between their EdgeConneX data center environment and the cloud, supporting their data growth and localization of mission-critical applications.
As reported recently by Zippia, 94 percent of enterprises use cloud services to reduce costs and increase security, with 80 percent of companies reporting operation improvements after adopting the cloud.
With the increase in cloud-based IT architectures, organizations must modernize their cloud connectivity strategy. By tapping into Megaport at an EdgeConneX data center, businesses with global IT footprints can use IT backbone capacity between service regions, cloud regions and data centers in near real-time.
EdgeConneX empowers organizations to overcome common barriers to adoption and improve performance and economics.
“Megaport brings high value to in-region organizations who seek to adopt hybrid cloud and multi-cloud architectures,” said Aron Smith, VP of Product Management at EdgeConneX “By leveraging Megaport on-ramps in key data center locations across our portfolio, EdgeConneX customers can achieve secure, reliable low-latency connections between production and secondary environments through the various on-demand connectivity options available on the platform.”
Megaport VP of Global Business Development Matt Simpson added, “EdgeConneX’ global data centers and cloud interconnection ecosystem presents a win for companies that require high cloud availability. Megaport customers can easily and securely connect to their cloud services over Megaport’s software-defined network in a scalable and cost-efficient way.”
