EdgeConneX and Megaport recently announced they have partnered to expand cloud access in three US cities – Dallas, Atlanta and Chicago.
The partnership will enable customers in those markets to connect their on-premises IT infrastructure to public cloud providers like AWS, Microsoft Azure and has partnered with Megaport to expand its cloud access capabilities in three U.S. cities: Atlanta, Detroit and Miami. This joint venture enables customers at these data centers to have access to hybrid cloud and multi-cloud services for their businesses, the companies say.
Megaport’s network provides organizations with private point-to-point connections between any location on its global network, allowing them to access cloud providers from EdgeConneX data centers. With this connection, customers can establish dedicated and secure connections between their EdgeConneX environment and the cloud, providing support for more data growth and localizing mission-critical applications, the company executives say.
“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,” says Aron Smith, the VP of product management at EdgeConneX.
EdgeConneX’s partnership with Megaport provides customers with access to private point-to-point networks, allowing them to securely and directly connect their data center environment to the global cloud providers. This service is now available in nine EdgeConneX data centers globally, supporting the localization of mission-critical applications.
EdgeConneX was in the news in March for successfully executing $3.3 billion in sustainability-linked financing — helping to create digital infrastructure to fulfill the requirements of customers’ data centers.
