Megaport introduces global cloud collaboration with Oracle

Megaport (USA), Inc., the US subsidiary of Megaport Limited (ASX: MP1) (“Megaport”), a global provider of Elastic Interconnection services and Silver level member of Oracle PartnerNetwork, has launched its cloud connectivity collaboration with Oracle, the company said.

Through this initiative, Megaport and Oracle can provide an easy, cost effective way for enterprises to create dedicated and private connectivity to Oracle Cloud services that can scale rapidly with changing business needs.

Enterprise customers continually look for more choices when it comes to designing networks that can flexibly and quickly address ever-changing workload requirements. Taking advantage of Megaport´s global network and API integration with Oracle Network Cloud Service – FastConnect, customers can now quickly establish connectivity between their on premise data center and Oracle cloud environments with higher bandwidth options and a more reliable and consistent networking experience when compared with internet-based connections.

Oracle customers can obtain access to the Megaport global network through the Megaport portal (megaport.al) in more than 20 major markets in Asia Pacific, North America and Europe with 150 points of presence[1]. From any of these locations Oracle customers can self-provision FastConnect via Megaport´s Web based portal/ API to the supported Oracle regions. Initial integration will be available at Ashburn and Phoenix with additional locations to be added in the near future.

Megaport is the global provider of Elastic Interconnection services. Using Software Defined Networking (SDN), the company´s global platform enables customers to rapidly connect their network to other services across the Megaport Network. Services can be directly controlled by customers via mobile devices, their computer, or our open API. The company´s extensive footprint in Australia, Asia Pacific, North America, and Europe, provides a neutral platform that spans many key data centre providers across various markets.

Oracle PartnerNetwork (OPN) is Oracle´s partner program that provides partners with a differentiated advantage to develop, sell and implement Oracle solutions. OPN offers resources to train and support specialized knowledge of Oracle´s products and solutions and has evolved to recognize Oracle´s growing product portfolio, partner base and business opportunity.
