On-demand connectivity for Munich

Megaport, a global leading Network as a Service (NaaS) provider servicing more than 1,500 customers worldwide, has completed the deployment of EdgeConneX's elastic cloud connectivity fabric at the EdgeConneX Munich data center. Megaport’s cloud connectivity solution enables enterprises to reduce operational costs, increase control and scale by leveraging multiple on-demand cloud services. The Munich announcement follows as EdgeConneX and Megaport expand their relationship globally, having recently announced Megaport cloud service availability in EdgeConneX Denver data centers and Memphis data center, bringing the total number of markets that Megaport is deployed in at EdgeConneX to 8.

“Munich is a large underserved market for network and peering, and is seeing substantial growth as enterprises demand local and secure access to the cloud,” comments Dick Theunissen, Managing Director EMEA at EdgeConneX. “Customers in these markets want the flexibility to choose different clouds on-demand and desire a more localized alternative to accessing leading cloud service providers. Our partnership with Megaport means we can bring the cloud locally to enterprise customers in Munich with direct access to all service partners available on their global network platform.”

The demand for multi-cloud and hybrid cloud architectures and the ability to efficiently move data between locations and applications is essential to guaranteeing service performance. By leveraging Megaport’s next-generation SDN fabric on-ramp for public, private and hybrid services at EdgeConneX, customers in Munich can now choose the optimal cloud service for their specific applications and requirements, thus reducing costs, and increasing flexibility and performance.

"Cloud adoption in Europe is greatly accelerating as evidenced by the growth in multi-cloud and hybrid cloud architectures enabled via elastic connectivity on the Megaport Software Defined Network,” commented Peter Hase, Chief Commercial Officer for Megaport. “Our leading integrations with cloud providers empower enterprises to connect locally to cloud service providers within their region to support data sovereignty and improved application performance. Customers can connect to over 130 different global cloud onramps via the Megaport platform and can enable cloud-to-cloud connections using Megaport Cloud Router to support their global IT architectures. We are happy to grow our valued partnership with EdgeConneX in Europe, as we extend the reach of cloud services further to the edge."
