EdgeConneX Cloud Access Partnerships
Continue to Expand

Over the course of the past six months, EdgeConneX has continued its extensive expansion efforts to bring local cloud access solutions to the Edge of the network. In addition to its existing APN Partnership status with AWS, EdgeConneX has recently established a direct partnership with Microsoft Azure, offering access to ExpressRoute in several EdgeConneX EDCs across North America.  Microsoft’s ExpressRoute allows customers to extend their on-premises networks into the Microsoft cloud over a dedicated private connection. In addition, this service offering provides users with the ability to establish connectivity with multiple Microsoft cloud services, including Microsoft Azure, Office 365, and Dynamics 365. With direct connection to customer WANs, ExpressRoute delivers improved speed, increased reliability and enhanced security, bypassing the public internet. This solution, facilitated by EdgeConneX and our networking partner, Megaport, enables direct network links within the local data center, allowing virtual connections to be provisioned on-demand in real time through the online portal or  network-connected devices.

In addition to its recent ExpressRoute partnership, EdgeConneX is also expanding its relationship with Megaport. The companies recently announced a multi-site deployment agreement that will bring on-demand private cloud access to the Edge. Throughout the remainder of 2017 and continuing into 2018, Megaport will continue to deploy their SDN platform into most EDCs around the world. This will provide elastic bandwidth for virtual connections to the cloud enabled via web portal or mobile app for full automation and service flexibility.

Service Benefits of the Megaport SDN Solution:

  • Automatic provisioning and deprovisioning of connections established with leading global cloud providers
  • Multi-cloud access to provision unlimited virtual connections to various cloud services from a single port
  • Flexible contract terms offered on a daily, monthly, or yearly basis
  • Total network management control provided over iOS, Android, Windows, and compliant web browsers
