Megaport and Orixcom have partnered together to enable enterprises and carriers in the Middle East with direct access to Managed Service Providers (MSPs) and Cloud Service Providers (CSPs).

“With cloud service providers making greater investments in the UAE and Middle East, it’s important enterprises have a scalable and easy way to get directly connected,” said Vincent English, CEO of Megaport. “Megaport provides a powerful platform that simplifies the management of cloud connectivity to enable multi-cloud and hybrid architectures. Our SDN provisions services at cloud-speed and reduces the complexity of connecting to cloud services. This empowers enterprises to deliver mission critical applications quickly, securely, and reliably. We are excited to partner with Orixcom to extend the reach of cloud services and satisfy the growing demand for cloud connectivity in the Middle East.

Using Megaport’s global SDN, Orixcom customers are able to directly access top cloud service providers such as AWS, Azure, IBM Cloud, Google Cloud Platform, Oracle Cloud, Alibaba Cloud, and Salesforce. In addition, customers can ‘right size’ their connections to ensure they can scale services while at the same time optimising costs. Megaport Cloud Router (MCR) delivers virtual routing capabilities to give greater traffic control and enables use-cases like cloud-to-cloud and virtual points of presence.

”Cloud is transforming the world of Enterprise IT, and we need to transform the world of Enterprise connectivity,” said Andrew Grenville, CEO of Orixcom. “By partnering with Megaport, the global leader in this area, Orixcom continues to drive change to deliver more value in the Middle East region with connectivity choices. We’re delighted that with one link to Megaport in Dubai many hundreds of commercially attractive connectivity options, both local and global, are immediately available to all enterprises and carriers”

Only last month, VXchnge, a data centre, colocation and interconnection solutions provider, extended its partnership with Megaport. Under the terms of the extended partnership, Megaport will enable vXchnge to deliver elastic interconnection and direct cloud connectivity services using software defined networking (SDN) across eight vXchnge data centres in key strategic growth markets.
