STT GDC partners with Megaport to bolster its data center services

28 Aug 18

In a bid to diversify its services and make them more agile, STT GDC has announced a new partnership.

Megaport will be providing its SDN-enabled, elastic interconnection and cloud exchange services within the STT Tai Seng 1 data centre in Singapore.

STT GDC group chief marketing officer Christopher Street says this will allow enterprise customers to benefit from powerful networking capabilities with rapid provisioning on a pay-as-you-go basis.

Further, customers will still retain control and flexibility over their architecture by accessing a number of leading cloud service platforms that include Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud Platform, Alibaba Cloud, IBM Cloud, Oracle Cloud, and Salesforce as well as hundreds of Managed Service Providers and networks.

“STT Tai Seng 1 houses Points of Presence of more than a dozen local and international carriers as well as Singapore Internet Exchange and Australia Singapore Cable. The global exchange of data traffic underpins the digital economy, the efficiency of this exchange is in turn dependent on the broad selection of network services and choice of providers that our customers enjoy,” says Street.

“We recently expanded to add another 4.6MW of capacity in response to strong enterprise customer demand. The combination of Megaport’s Network as a Service and our leading data center solutions creates a powerful value proposition for our customers to connect and scale with the cloud services they need.”

Megaport chief executive officer Vincent English says the company is thrilled to be partnering with STT GDC.

“The growing demand for interconnectivity and peering services in Asia Pacific is placing Singapore as a regional innovation hub to deliver connectivity services across the region,” says English.

“STT GDC is well-positioned to support the growth of cloud adoption as enterprises in Asia Pacific undergo digital transformation. Extending the reach of cloud services to STT GDC is a testament to our commitment to neutrality and making connectivity easy.”
