Megaport Singapore, a subsidiary of Australia's Megaport, has entered into an arrangement to provide enterprises with direct and scalable access to Alibaba Cloud via the Megaport global SDN.
By accessing Alibaba Cloud Express Connect, a high-speed dedicated network connection that securely links customers with their VPCs through Megaport’s SDN, enterprises can scale their cloud connectivity and enable rapid provisioning of capacity to Alibaba Cloud.
From a single global account, Megaport customers can cut down latency and deploy globally on Alibaba Cloud’s network of cloud regions.
Alibaba Cloud’s customers will be able to access Megaport’s global network in more than 20 major markets in the Asia Pacific, North American, and European regions with 150 points of presence.
Alibaba Cloud will extend its edge closer to enterprises, provide consistent network performance for its customers, and expand its direct access capabilities around the world.
“Megaport’s extensive global footprint is strengthened by our partnership with Alibaba Cloud,” said Vincent English, Chief Executive Officer of Megaport.
“Direct, dedicated access to Alibaba Cloud’s services adds value to our platform. This partnership enables customers globally to directly access services from the leading cloud provider based in China. Partnering with China’s largest public cloud provider aligns with our strategy to enrich our Ecosystem and provides greater service options for our customers.”
