Megaport builds connection between enterprises in A/NZ and North America

10 May 2017

Megaport recently announced that it has delivered capacity between Sydney to Los Angeles to cater for growing demand.

The software-defined networking provider says enabling this route on the Megaport network is the foundation for enterprises wanting to utilise key cloud nodes outside of Australia and New Zealand (A/NZ).

This will enable a geographical differentiator to connect to multi-national cloud nodes from one physical interface by providing access to any cloud node across the Megaport platform.

According to Megaport, within its global footprint Australia is its most mature market and as such, enabling this capacity for customers and partners is valuable for the ecosystem as a whole.

Network architect at Hillsong, Ricky Cook says he agrees with Megaport’s statement that 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,” says Cook.

“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.” 

And of course, 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, says chief commercial officer at Megaport, Belle Lajoie.

“This means that A/NZ 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.”
