Megaport expands services to Japanese market

By

Australian-listed network as a service (NaaS) provider Megaport has announced the expansion of services to Japan, with cloud connectivity services now available in Tokyo, through multiple data centres.

Megaport (ASX: MP1) says connectivity is available through Equinix TY2, TY4 and AT TOKYO CC1 data centres, with future locations to include NTT DATA Otemachi, Colt Shiohama, NEC Kanagawa, MC-Digital Realty Mitaka, and TELEHOUSE TOKYO Otemachi.

Megaport says customers can also take advantage of direct connections to AWS, Azure, Oracle, and IBM cloud onramps in Japan.

Currently available in 102 cities globally, Megaport says it connects more than 525 enabled data centres and 141 cloud onramps, enabling businesses in Japan to “seamlessly and directly access access cloud and IT services on a global level without the need to manage complex network infrastructure”.

“Businesses with global IT footprints can immediately take advantage of Megaport's presence in Japan to connect into key data centres on demand. The ability to provision IT backbone capacity between service regions, cloud regions, and data centres in near real-time via Megaport's interconnection fabric accelerates the growth of hybrid cloud capabilities globally and supports data growth and localisation of mission critical applications,” Megaport says.

 "Japan has proven to be one of the leading cloud markets in the Asia Pacific region and has been growing at a rapid rate over the last several years," said Josh Munro, EVP APAC at Megaport.

"Megaport is very excited to launch services in Tokyo. This will provide opportunity for our existing customers to grow with Megaport and create new opportunities for Megaport to service our local partners and customers.”

"Cloud service providers have made massive investments in Japan to meet the growing demand for cloud-based services," said Vincent English, CEO at Megaport.

"Businesses in Japan are increasingly utilising multiple service providers to build their next generation IT services. Megaport is excited to partner with leading data centres around the country to extend the reach of cloud services to where enterprises house their critical private IT infrastructure.

“With Megaport cloud router available in Japan, customers can directly connect their service providers together for cloud-to-cloud applications. The Megaport Software Defined Network (SDN) offers choice, flexibility, and ease of use through a single global network, allowing businesses to simplify and accelerate their journey to the cloud."
