megaportCavern Technologies, a data center services provider specializing in the development, leasing, and operation of build-to-suit wholesale data centers in the Kansas City region, has added Megaport’s Software Defined Network (SDN) to its customer offerings.

Megaport’s global SDN includes over 220 data center Points-of-Presence (PoPs) and enables on-demand and “elastic” interconnection to clouds, networks, enterprises, and managed services.

“This gives our customers more opportunities to connect with leading clouds,” said Sean Khurana, President, and COO of Cavern Technology. “Megaport also provides customers a safe and fast way to set up hybrid cloud systems and applications.”

As a global Network-as-a-Service (NaaS) provider, Megaport enables secured, direct connectivity to an ecosystem of over 250 service providers including Amazon Web Services (AWS Cloud), Microsoft Azure, IBM Cloud, Google Cloud Platform, and Oracle Cloud, as well as hundreds of other managed and network service providers.

Multi-Cloud Solutions

They are also able to use Megaport Cloud Router (MCR) to create “high-performance” multi-cloud and cloud-to-cloud solutions without the need to directly manage IP network infrastructure.

“As our industry evolves, we are always looking to find products and services that will address the ever-changing needs of our customers,” said John Clune, CEO of Cavern Technologies. “Megaport is a leader in NaaS and its SDN supports hybrid cloud connections, which will allow our customers to continue to grow.”

On-Demand Connectivity

“To stay competitive in a cloud-enabled world, it’s critical data centers have access to an ecosystem of leading cloud and managed service providers,” said Vincent English, CEO of Megaport. “Cavern Technologies customers will benefit from Megaport’s ability to provide direct, on-demand connectivity that aligns with cloud consumption models. As more enterprises are integrating public cloud providers as part of their IT strategy, direct connectivity has become critical to ensuring performance, security, and scalability.”
