Bluebird Network announces its allies with Megaport Limited to enable private access to cloud providers such as AWS, Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud, Oracle Cloud, Alibaba Cloud, IBM Cloud, Nutanix, and Salesforce.
The partnership with Megaport gives customers of Bluebird Network and the Bluebird Underground Data Center, unprecedented connectivity to each of these top-tier cloud computing and “as-a-service” providers.
Further, it will help to strengthen customer product offerings and improve support to both data center and network customers. Customers can expect improved performance through secure end-to-end connections linking customer locations to cloud networks without traversing the public internet. Private, dedicated connections will allow customers to better control where and how their data gets to the cloud.
Additionally, customers will be able to connect to the cloud service provider onramp and location that works best for their network architecture. This removes the dependency on traditional internet providers, reduces hardware costs, aligns connectivity to cloud models, and opens deployment options and support for hybrid cloud solutions.
“Our partnership with Megaport provides both our data center and network customers with additional resources to support their business-critical operations; allowing for dedicated, secure, and scalable connections to the cloud,” states Michael Morey, President, and CEO of Bluebird Network.
Utilizing Megaport’s Software Defined Network (SDN), Bluebird will directly support customer connections to the destination of their choice including over 300 service providers within the Megaport Ecosystem. The Megaport Cloud Router (MCR), will enable Bluebird cloud-to-cloud connectivity directly between cloud service providers and manage IP routing capabilities for customers.
Peter Hase, Chief Commercial Officer, Megaport, commented, ” Utilizing Megaport’s SDN and Megaport Cloud Router, Bluebird can support advanced connectivity use cases like cloud-to-cloud. We are delighted to partner with Bluebird to empower their customers with connectivity to the service providers that drive their mission-critical IT applications.”
