Cinia partners with Megaport to deliver direct cloud connectivity

Megaport and Cinia Oy announced that they have partnered to enable enterprises direct access to leading cloud service providers (CSPs) and extend Cinia’s network services reach.

Megaport CEO Vincent English says, “The core tenet of Megaport is making connectivity easy, we overcome barriers to entry for cloud adoption by making it easy to get connected directly to cloud, managed, and network service providers.”

“This enables scalability, consistent performance, and bandwidth optimisation that helps reduce total cost of ownership.”

“Our Software Defined Network empowers enterprises to architect multicloud and hybrid cloud connectivity.”

For maximum ease of use, customers can order services in real-time via their Portal or through their API. 

Their partnership with Cinia enables Finnish enterprises with direct cloud access via Cinia’s national and international network. 

Cinia has leveraged Megaport’s global SDN as a part of its cMatrix service, a customer-specific direct connect solution that bypasses the internet and gives enterprises direct access to CSPs and the data centres in Europe where CSPs enable their services. 

Enterprises will access Megaport’s Ecosystem of over 250 service providers including Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud, Oracle Cloud, IBM Cloud, and Alibaba Cloud with high capacity and low latency through Cinia’s C-Lion1 Submarine cable, the most direct route from Finland to Central and West Europe.

Cinia SVP Taneli Vuorinen says, “We partnered with Megaport because connectivity is a key factor when accessing public cloud services and their solution, combined with our footprint in the Nordics, addresses a clear demand.

“The majority of data centres that house public CSPs for European customers are located in Central and Western Europe, this does not account for enterprises that can be over a thousand kilometres away and creates challenges in terms of latency.”

“We wanted to deliver an option for customers to access direct connectivity to cloud services and give them the autonomy to dial these connections up and down as their business demands require it, as such, partnering with Megaport was the natural decision.”

Megaport is a global provider of elastic interconnection services. 

Using software-defined networking (SDN), the company’s global platform enables customers to connect their network to other services across the Megaport Network.
