Megaport provides an interconnection fabric that 365 customers use to access AWS, Alibaba Cloud, Azure and at least six other public clouds. The new service, dubbed 365 Cloud Connect, complements 365’s existing private cloud service offerings.
“As IT stakeholders embrace public cloud as part of hyperconverged and hybrid cloud strategies, they are grappling with the connectivity requirements that will scale, and securely support interoperation of cloud-based services,” said Megaport chief marketing officer Eric Troyer. “By integrating with leading cloud providers and connecting to over 120 cloud on-ramps globally, Megaport’s software-defined network enables rapid, on-demand connections to a vast ecosystem of service providers. We are pleased to partner with 365 Data Centers and to provide this critical access to 365’s customers as we extend our collective reach and get customers directly connected to the public cloud.”
365 Data Centers CEO Bob DeSantis described Megaport as “the most competitive elastic cloud provider in the industry.”
“As a data center, network services, cloud and other managed services operator, 365 is an industry leader in optimizing redundancy and cost-efficiency for customers of our hybrid IT service offerings,” DeSantis said. “365 Global Connect further enhances 365 Data Centers value proposition for our existing and prospective customers.”
365 Data Centers revamped its channel program last year to focus on master agent partners, VARs, consultants and MSPs. The company said it was pivoting from colocation to hybrid IT services.
