Written on the 19 January 2016
MEGAPORT'S United States subsidiary has signed an alliance agreement with CyrusOne.
This will deliver SDN-enabled, elastic interconnection and cloud exchange services in CyrusOne data centres in the US.
This alliance expands Megaport's services to 13 new locations in markets that include Austin, Dallas, Chicago, Cincinnati, Houston, Phoenix, Sterling and San Antonio, among others.
Megaport CEO Denver Maddux says the agreement will serve the growing demand for the company which has developed a platform that allows businesses to connect with cloud providers at various speeds, rather than on fixed bandwidth.
"Our elastic fabric brings a whole new dimension to the growing demand for interconnectivity and peering services market by delivering truly dynamic connectivity capabilities," says Maddux.
Megaport has completed installation of 15 of its first-phase core footprint sites in the US. The Chicago, Dallas, Los Angeles, New York City, Northern Virginia, Seattle and Silicon Valley metros are live for services.
This core footprint provides immediate access for new and existing customers to acquire connectivity from cloud and network service partners.
