By

Regional data centre operator Leading Edge Data Centres will use Megaport to provide direct connectivity from its Newcastle data centre.

Megaport's network provides direct access to 215 cloud on-ramps to leading providers, bypassing the public internet.

Claimed benefits include security, performance, scalability, and ease of use (controlled from the Megaport Portal),

Megaport provides access to more than 350 service providers, including Alibaba, AWS, Google Cloud, IBM Cloud, Microsoft Azure, Nutanix, Oracle Cloud, Salesforce, Rackspace and SAP.

"Leading Edge Data Centres chose to partner with Megaport to provide our customers choice when they connect to the cloud," said Leading Edge Data Centres CEO Chris Thorpe.

"Megaport provides options around on-demand, multicould connectivity with access to the broadest set of cloud on-ramps globally. Providing this capability is a huge benefit for our customers across regional Australia."

Megaport acting chief commercial officer Joshua Munro said "We are very pleased to be welcoming Leading Edge Data Centres to our growing ecosystem of data centre partners.

"The Megaport SDN simplifies connectivity for enterprises by removing many of the traditional cloud access complexities involving technical resources, capital costs, performance and security.

"Newcastle is one of the fastest-growing regions in Australia, and through our rich global network of service providers, businesses in the Hunter Region can choose and rapidly connect to the services that are right for their specific requirements and digital strategies."
