IT service, data centre, and cloud solutions provider OneAsia has partnered with network-as-a-service (NaaS) provider Megaport to open up cloud connectivity options for Hong Kong-based enterprises.

OneAsia will be launching Express Connect to Any Cloud (ECAC) which is a new service the company says provides secure and on-demand managed connections to leading cloud service providers.

"Today, the powerful momentum towards cloud computing continues to grow exponentially as enterprises look for greater flexibility, higher levels of resilience, operational efficiencies and lower Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) across their IT systems," says OneAsia CEO and founder Charles Lee.

"Through our partnership with Megaport launching ECAC, these enterprises can move mission-critical workloads into their choice of cloud in near-real time, through a single point of contact with a user-friendly interface, thus simplifying the building of highly scalable hybrid and multi-cloud models."

Under the partnership, OneAsia will be leveraging Megaport’s services to introduce a wider range of cloud connectivity options. These services include Megaport’s global software defined network (SDN) that provides customers with direct private connections to more than 100 cloud service providers on-ramps around the world directly from OneAsia’s Kowloon Bay data centre in Hong Kong.

The NaaS provider possesses an ecosystem that allows connections to more than 300 service providers and in excess of 240 data centres around the globe.

This means customers of OneAsia’s data centre in Kowloon Bay now have direct and flexible access to a wide range of cloud service providers, including all the big names like Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud, among others.

"We are pleased to partner with OneAsia," says Megaport CEO Vincent English.

"Combining OneAsia's managed service capabilities and data center service with Megaport's global connectivity and deep cloud integration creates a powerful, holistic solution for enterprises in Hong Kong. As cloud adoption in Hong Kong continues to accelerate, this partnership positions us to break down the barriers to cloud adoption and scale the next wave of cloud growth in Hong Kong and the greater Asia Pacific region."

OneAsia now has more than ten years of experience in hybrid IT and multi-cloud managed services and is interconnected with a fully protected fibre network outside Hong Kong with extensive coverage across the region.
