Fujitsu has signed a global reseller agreement with leading Elastic Interconnection provider Megaport, allowing its customers access to a comprehensive range of cloud platforms via an "on-demand" provisioning model. Megaport points of presence will be established in the Fujitsu Malaga (Perth), and North Ryde (Sydney) data centres.
Megaport’s Fabric also enables customers to connect directly with Fujitsu’s managed services across a globally distributed platform using the Megaport portal or API to order direct, elastic connectivity. This expands the reach of Fujitsu’s managed services to additional customer segments and service markets.
The new service greatly reduces the time and complexity of provisioning cloud services, allowing customers wider coverage speed to market while reducing costs and enabling real-time provisioning across one platform.
The Megaport partnership is also aligned with Fujitsu’s Data Centre Roadmap, which was announced in 2015 and outlines ongoing investment in the company’s data-centre capability to keep abreast of evolving customer needs. The announcement of the additional functionality follows some enhancements recently highlighted including the planned Tier IV certification of the Fujitsu Malaga data centre and a significant power upgrade to its Western Sydney data centre.
Denver Maddux, chief executive of Megaport, said: “We are truly excited to have a trusted global data leader like Fujitsu joining the Megaport ecosystem. Our alliance enables us to address the need for scalable cloud services in Western Australia with real-time speed and greater optionality. Having Fujitsu’s managed services available across the Megaport Fabric provides great value to our global customers as they execute on their hybrid IT strategies.”
