Evoque Data Center Solutions, a global colocation services company, has partnered with Megaport to launch Megaport’s Cloud Connectivity service.

The solution enables enterprises to connect to multiple cloud providers as and when it’s needed. The offering provides seamless, flexible, on-demand and secure connections to a multi-cloud platform in several Evoque data centres, allowing customers to connect to global cloud service providers (CSPs).

"Enterprises are discovering which applications and workloads perform better in cloud environments and which are better served from a data centre," said Tim Caulfield (pictured), CEO of Evoque. "As workloads are developed and mature, they are moved between cloud and data centres. By having this multi-cloud capability, we are enabling our customers to easily move workloads in and out of cloud environments to the data centre. Customers want access to the cloud, and they want the ability to pay for what they use when they want it."

Using SDN, the company's global platform enables customers to rapidly connect their network to other services across the Megaport network. In addition, services can be directly controlled by customers using either their mobiles, computer or via an open API.

The first five data centres to launch the Megaport cloud services are in Allen, Texas; Mesa, Arizona; Ashburn, Virginia; Lithia Springs, Georgia; and Redditch - Birmingham, UK. Additional sites are planned to receive the service in the future.

"Enterprises need to have immediate access to extra compute, storage, or processing during high volume times," added Caulfield. "By having scalable immediate access to clouds from within the data centre, our customers are able to effectively manage these peaks and valleys."

For Evoque offering Megaport's Cloud Connectivity services allows the company to expand its global customer footprint.

"This gives us immediate recognition in the market as an interconnectivity player in this space," Caulfield said. "Megaport levels the playing field for us against our core competitors. This partnership also gives us the immediate expansion of our ecosystems to other providers and other Evoque IDCs.  It is a first step to building our carrier neutral model."

At the start of May, Evoque opened its data centres to all carriers, responding to the increasing demand for diverse connectivity options among both large and small enterprises.
