EdgeConneX has announced an expansion of its Denver facility and a new partnership with Megaport at the US site.
EdgeConneX, which specialises in edge data centre solutions,
has added 21MW of additional capacity to the 115,000 square
foot Edge Data Center campus in Denver.
The facility, which is located in the heart of
Denver’s technology centre, offers carrier-neutral
operations for content, network, cloud and IT proviers, with
support up to 30kW per rack.
The expansion also sees Megaport deploying its
software-defined network to enable elastic interconnection
services within the Denver site, offering enterprises direct
connections to multiple cloud services including Amazon Web
Services and Oracle Cloud.
Customers in the facility will have the ability to leverage
Megaport to interconnect to cloud and managed service providers
with flexible terms, and scale bandwidth on demand from 1 Mbps
to 10 Gbps.
The addition of Megaport’s SDN services will
extend "the reach of the leading cloud service providers to the
Edge and locally to markets like Denver" EdgeConneX said,
offering "improved choice, security, performance and economics
when migrating their workloads to the cloud."
"By expanding our available capacity seven fold in the
Denver market, we can easily scale our existing ecosystems of
network and content service providers to include cloud service
providers looking to garner hybrid cloud deployment from
enterprises," explains Jeff King, VP and general manager for
"Additionally, by layering in cloud access solutions from
Megaport, and managed cloud service providers, we are helping
bring cloud solutions locally to Denver."
Megaport recently announced direct interconnect to Oracle
Cloud in London, as has
EdgeConneX through its Denver facility.
