Megaport, a global Network-as-a-Service (NaaS) provider, has expanded its Software Defined Network (SDN) services to additional Evoque data center locations. Megaport’s SDN services will soon be available in Lynnwood (Seattle), WA; San Jose, CA; and Watertown (Boston), MA. These locations join several Evoque data centers that already feature Megaport’s cloud connectivity solutions.
The inclusion of Megaport’s Software Defined Network (SDN) services into these markets provides multi-cloud connectivity and point-to-point network connectivity to all Evoque customers in these markets. Utilizing Megaport’s services within Evoque’s facilities would enable clients to create customized hybrid data solutions by connecting to multiple cloud providers on an as-needed basis.
These three new locations join several Evoque data centers that currently feature Megaport’s cloud connectivity solutions:
- Allen, TX
- Ashburn, VA
- Irvine, CA
- Lisle, IL
- Lithia Springs, GA
- Mesa, AZ
- Piscataway, NJ
- Redditch (Birmingham), United Kingdom
“We are pleased to grow our partnership with Evoque Data Center Solutions,” said Peter Hase, Chief Commercial Officer (CCO) at Megaport. “Their strong enterprise-focused data center service offerings align perfectly with Megaport services to provide a secure, highly available, well connected location to enable their customers’ IT infrastructure. Our expansion to additional Evoque locations will support more businesses as they undergo their digital transformation in key markets and provide them low-latency access to the services they need while keeping their valuable IT resources local.”
The Evoque and Megaport partnership would provide customers with:
- Choice – Direct private access to an industry-leading 171 cloud on-ramps and over on-net locations.
- Security and Performance – Reliable, direct, private connections that bypass the public Internet.
