The global Network-as-a-service provider Megaport announced that it has partnered with the Polish data center operator, Beyond.Pl.
With the partnership, the duo aims to respond to the rising demand from organizations for connectivity services. The launch of Megaport’s point of presence (PoP) at the Poznan data center campus will make it possible to establish connections between the Polish operator and data centers worldwide.
"The addition of Megaport cloud connectivity services to Beyond.pl’s portfolio will provide Beyond.pl’s Polish and international customers with direct, secure access to more than 360 cloud and SaaS providers, including AWS, Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud, Oracle Cloud, Nutanix, Alibaba Cloud, and Salesforce, with minimal latency and using any configuration possible (multi-cloud, hybrid cloud, and cloud to cloud)," said a press release.
Additionally, Beyond.pl’s customers will be able to create direct, cost-efficient connections to Megaport’s global ecosystem of 700+ data centers while Megaport customers will gain access to a new colocation site strategically located halfway between Berlin and Warsaw, offering the highest levels of security and fully powered with green energy, it added.
“Poland is one of the fastest-growing emerging data center markets in Europe. This is being driven by growing demand for IT and cloud services in Poland,” says Eric Troyer, Chief Marketing Officer, Megaport. “ Customers will not only benefit from its unique colocation offering but can also simplify their data center interconnect and cloud deployment strategies with fast, secure, and on-demand Network as a Service capability to connect their evolving IT architectures to the services and locations that power their business."
Megaport’s connectivity services at Beyond.pl will become available by the end of September 2021. The services will be offered through a private SDN, bypassing the public internet. Access to these services will be provided through a Megaport PoP located at Data Center 2 in Poznan, Poland.
