CyrusOne is expanding its partnership with Megaport by deploying the full suite of Megaport services at its London I data centre in Slough, UK.

In doing so, CyrusOne is delivering access to more than 300 service providers, including global Cloud Service Providers (CSPs) enabling its customers to have secure, on-demand connections to leading CSPs directly from its London facility.

“As more and more enterprise customers opt for hybrid cloud architectures, they want the flexibility to scale rapidly and course correct quickly as their demands change,” said Tesh Durvasula (pictured), president of Europe at CyrusOne. “Given the highly successful partnership we already have in the US, it was an easy decision to bring this service to Europe where we have a rapidly growing portfolio of enterprise customers.”

Leveraging Megaport’s elastic connectivity, customers have the flexibility to vary connectivity requirements based on actual demand. Therefore CyrusOne customers can order new cloud services, scale, and control in real-time, enabling them to deploy a network strategy in days and pay only for what they need. All connections are secure and protected, with automatic fail-over, offering customers complete freedom over how they architect their hybrid cloud solutions.

"We have a strong partnership with CyrusOne already and expanding this into Europe will further enhance our ability to provide flexible, reliable and scalable connectivity solutions together, adding value for our Enterprise customers,” said Peter Hase, chief commercial officer, Megaport. “CyrusOne’s premier London location gives enterprises a great local option for building their hybrid, multi-cloud, cloud-to-cloud, and disaster recovery solutions. Our proven working relationship enables us to move quickly to meet the escalating demand in Europe.”

The news marks the first collaboration between the two companies in Europe, both parties have already collaborated in the US with Megaport services already available across CyrusOne’s portfolio of data centres in the region.
