Multi-Region, Multicloud Connectivity Options for Enterprises in ANZ and USA
Brisbane, Australia – 9 May 2017 – Megaport Limited (ASX: MP1) ("Megaport"), the leader in global Software Defined Networking (SDN), today announced that it has delivered capacity between Sydney, Australia to Los Angeles, USA to cater for growing demand. Enabling this route on the Megaport Network is key for enterprises wanting to utilise key cloud nodes outside of Australia-New Zealand. By providing access to any cloud node across the Megaport platform, the Sydney to Los Angeles route enables a geographical differentiator to connect to multi-national cloud nodes from one physical interface.
Australia is the most mature market in Megaport’s global footprint. As such, enabling this capacity for customers and partners is valuable for the Ecosystem as a whole. Enterprises now have a platform to grow outside of the Australia-New Zealand region while leveraging a cost effective, low latency solution.
“The decision to go with Megaport in order to leverage scalable international capacity was an easy one to make,” said Ricki Cook, Network Architect at Hillsong. “Over the last year with Megaport, we’ve found them to be experts in NaaS (Network-as-a-Service). The team’s expertise, coupled with the cost savings of a true consumption based model, give us full confidence in using them for our Australian Cloud connections, and also for this international connection.”
This announcement comes shortly after the recently announced Oracle and Megaport Global Cloud Collaboration.
“I’m pleased to be announcing this new international route, with the Oracle Cloud node now part of the North American Megaport fabric. This means that ANZ enterprises will now have a dedicated and reliable way to access Oracle’s bare metal cloud infrastructure (Fast Connect). This is really exciting for Megaport customers in all regions, as it delivers yet another solution for MP1’s global customer base” said Belle Lajoie, Chief Commercial Officer at Megaport.
