Megaport USA is helping to empower vXchnge’s interconnection platform to deliver SDN-enabled, elastic interconnection and direct cloud connectivity services in vXchnge’s data centres.

Cloud spaceBy working with Megaport, vXchnge customers can flexibly scale bandwidth to optimise capacity so they pay only for what they use. Customers can access multiple service providers over the SDN and manage direct, multi-cloud connectivity through Megaport’s API, the Megaport.al, and Megaport’s mobile applications.

“Incorporating Megaport’s ecosystem into the vXchnge interconnection platform enables customers with additional options to provision secure, reliable cloud and peering connections,” said Ernest Sampera, CMO of vXchnge. “Megaport’s seamless connectivity can accelerate a customer’s digital transformation to cloud platforms.”

vXchnge customers utilising the Megaport Ecosystem gain access into additional networks with instant provisioning capabilities and the ability to leverage the resources of leading, global cloud service providers, including: Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud, Oracle Cloud, and Alibaba Cloud.

Our partnership lowers the barrier to entry for cloud adoption and extends Megaport’s service footprint to more of the locations where enterprises are enabling next generation cloud architectures in the US,” said Nicole Cooper, executive vice president of Americas at Megaport.
