Responding to increasing customer demand for diverse cloud connectivity options, QTS has expanded the availability of Megaport to seven additional data centers. Customers will now have access to Megaport across 10 different QTS facilities.
The deployment of Megaport in additional data centers is part of QTS’ multi-phased approach to expand its carrier-neutral cloud ecosystem and simplify customer network strategies. It allows customers to expand their connectivity options for cloud and hybrid IT environments.
Customers in QTS’ Atlanta, GA; Ashburn, VA; Piscataway, NJ, Miami, FL, Suwanee, GA and Sacramento, CA data centers will now be able to access the Software Defined Interconnection services from Megaport. These Networking as a Service (NaaS) offerings were already available in QTS’ Chicago, IL; Dallas-Irving, TX; Richmond, VA and Santa Clara, CA data centers.
“Megaport’s NaaS platform aligns well with QTS’ innovative software-defined data centers and hybrid IT solutions,” said Eric Troyer, Chief Marketing Officer, Megaport. “Their commitment to strategic carrier-neutral cloud interconnection has created environments where enterprises can go to solve the challenges of adopting and scaling cloud services. The Megaport ecosystem enables QTS customers with the greatest choice of service providers and global cloud onramps. Direct connections to cloud onramps improves performance, scalability, and can reduce costs for QTS customers and partners. With Megaport Cloud Router, QTS customers can directly connect between public cloud providers through point and click provisioning – making multi-cloud networking a reality.”
Megaport complements QTS’ existing portfolio of network services to include direct, on demand connectivity to the world’s largest cloud and hyperscale providers such as AWS, Azure, Google Cloud, Oracle Cloud, IBM Cloud, Alibaba Cloud, Salesforce.com, SAP and Nutanix.
“QTS is highly focused on providing our customers with the widest range of connectivity, interconnection and peering options,” said Sean Baillie, Chief of Staff, QTS. “Speed, agility and efficiency are central to every hybrid IT strategy and Megaport provides our customers with a highly elastic option for connecting with who they want, when they want, more efficiently and effectively.”
