EdgeConneX’s Warsaw data centre gains support for Megaport’s SDN Cloud

EdgeConneX has announced that Megaport, a Network as a Service (NaaS) provider, has completed the deployment of its elastic cloud connectivity fabric at the EdgeConneX Warsaw, Poland, data centre. 

Megaport’s software-defined cloud connectivity solutions are designed to help enterprises reduce operational costs, increase control and scale by leveraging multiple on-demand cloud services, including: AWS, Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud, IBM Cloud, Oracle Cloud among others. 

So far, nine EdgeConneX Edge data centre markets worldwide have deployed Megaport’s SDN, including Portland, Santa Clara, San Diego, Phoenix, Denver, Houston, Memphis, Munich and Warsaw. 

The EdgeConneX Warsaw data centre is a carrier neutral, 15,070 sqft facility with 2.5 MW N+1 of capacity. 

“Relative to other markets in the region, Warsaw is relatively underserved with purpose-built data centres and world-class offerings,” states Dan Bizo Principal Analyst for Datacenter Services & Infrastructure Channel at 451 Research.

“Financial services, gaming clouds and development, car manufacturing and aviation IT services, and content providers are among the major sectors. German and Dutch companies are also expected to take up more capacity, with a growing requirement for cross-border IT services in a lower-cost facility, such as analytics, HPC and disaster recovery. Transit costs to Frankfurt and Amsterdam are relatively negligible.”

 “Our partnership with EdgeConneX, provides enterprises local hybrid and multi-cloud access in Warsaw,” commented Eric Troyer, Chief Marketing Officer for Megaport. 

“Through integration with leading cloud providers, Megaport simplifies the process of connecting to cloud. With Megaport Cloud Router, customers can also connect cloud-to-cloud with ease and in real time.”

“Warsaw is a burgeoning market for network peering solutions as enterprises require local and secure access to premier cloud providers,” comments Dick Theunissen, Managing Director EMEA at EdgeConneX. 

“Businesses in these markets demand the ability to choose different clouds on-demand and want a truly local way of accessing leading cloud service providers and transmitting data between locations. Our partnership with Megaport certainly provides this. In effect, we are bringing a lower cost, more secure cloud to customers in Warsaw and an open door to other Edge markets worldwide.”
