QTS deploys Megaport in seven data centres


QTS Realty Trust has deployed Megaport’s Software Defined Interconnection services in seven additional data centres.

The provider of software-defined and mega scale data centre solutions enhanced access to the networking-as-a-service (NaaS) provider’s SDI services in its Atlanta, Ashburn, Piscataway, Miami, Suwanee, and Sacramento data centres to respond to surging demand for diverse cloud connectivity options.

The partnership complements QTS' existing portfolio of network services to include direct, on-demand connectivity to the world's largest cloud and hyperscale providers, such as: AWS, Azure, Google Cloud, Oracle Cloud, IBM Cloud, Alibaba Cloud, Salesforce.com, SAP and Nutanix. Earlier this year, QTS became a Microsoft Azure CSP Direct Reseller partner and launched its Managed Azure Essential service.

"Megaport's NaaS platform aligns well with QTS' innovative software-defined data centres and hybrid IT solutions. Their commitment to strategic carrier-neutral cloud interconnection has created environments where enterprises can go to solve the challenges of adopting and scaling cloud services," said Eric Troyer, chief marketing officer at Megaport.

"The Megaport ecosystem enables QTS customers with the greatest choice of service providers and global cloud onramps. Direct connections to cloud onramps improves performance, scalability, and can reduce costs for QTS customers and partners. With Megaport Cloud Router, QTS customers can directly connect between public cloud providers through point and click provisioning - making multicloud networking a reality."

Megaport's deployment is part of QTS' multi-phased approach to expand its carrier-neutral cloud ecosystem and simplify customer network strategies by providing connectivity for cloud and hybrid IT environments.

"QTS is highly focused on providing our customers with the widest range of connectivity, interconnection and peering options," added Sean Baillie, chief of staff at QTS. "Speed, agility and efficiency are central to every hybrid IT strategy and Megaport provides our customers with a highly elastic option for connecting with who they want, when they want, more efficiently and effectively."

Access to Megaport's platform is already available in QTS' Chicago, Dallas-Irving, Richmond and Santa Clara facilities. QTS customers will now have access to Megaport across 10 different data centres.

In the past few months, Megaport has expanded its NaaS offering to Japan and expanded the service footprint and additional capabilities of its Megaport Cloud Router (MCR).
