RagingWire Data Centers Inc. has added Megaport’s global software-defined network to its Cloud Connect portfolio.

“Enterprises must ensure that their cloud-enabled applications perform flawlessly,” says Megaport CEO Vincent English. “Customers using Megaport’s SDN, in combination with RagingWire’s world-class data centers, will benefit from next-generation hybrid cloud solutions with secure and direct interconnection to public cloud service providers with higher performance, lower latency, greater control, and improved uptime. Partnering with RagingWire gives their data center customers multiple configurable bandwidth options that are optimized for hybrid multicloud deployments that are now the standard IT strategy.”

Owned by NTT Communications, RagingWire Data Centers designs, builds, and operates mission-critical data centers. RagingWire has a total of 140 data centers in 20 countries and regions around the world.

That includes 1.5 million square feet of data center infrastructure in Ashburn, Va.; Dallas; and Northern Calif. Megaport’s SDN offering is available in these facilities.

RagingWire’s Cloud Connect allows organizations to integrate public clouds with their enterprise applications running in its data centers. The runs carrier-neutral facilities, so customers have their choice of an array of carriers and connectivity. And these customers can now benefit from dynamic bandwidth allocation, flexible connectivity, on-demand provisioning, and user-controlled management and reporting via a web interface.

“We are excited to add Megaport to RagingWire’s Cloud Connect portfolio,” said Bruno Berti, Vice President of Product Management at RagingWire. “Together, we are achieving a significant milestone in the innovation of ‘cloud neutral’ services, to go along with the ‘carrier neutral’ services that have become an industry standard. Through Cloud Connect, our data center customers now have more options than ever to connect their companies to the best clouds in the world and quickly and securely deploy hybrid cloud systems and applications.”

Tuesday was Day 2 of Cisco Live for Fiber Mountain and we continued to experience high levels of traffic, with many high value decision makers and influencers visiting our booth.
