Germany’s tech hubs are continuing to heat up with surging demand for scalable, on-demand connectivity to cloud service providers. In Munich, where most businesses operating in the city are based elsewhere, this trend is especially hot. After all, the ability to move data efficiently between locations and applications is essential to guaranteeing service performance and better business results.
For EdgeConneX®, pioneers in edge data center development, the answer has always been in bringing its existing partner Megaport’s elastic cloud connectivity fabric into its Munich data center. With the completion of this deployment announced today, enterprises throughout the south German city can now reduce operational costs, increase control and scale by leveraging multiple on-demand services. This news comes as EdgeConneX and Megaport work on other global expansions together. With a presence in EdgeConneX facilities in Denver and Memphis, the two companies are redefining what it means to connect to the cloud at the Edge in a total of eight markets.
“Munich is a large underserved market for network and peering and is seeing substantial growth as enterprises demand local and secure access to the Cloud. Customers in these markets want the flexibility to choose different clouds on-demand and desire a more localized alternative to accessing leading cloud service providers. Our partnership with Megaport means we can bring the Cloud locally to enterprise customers in Munich with direct access to all service partners available on their global network platform.” – Dick Theunissen, Managing Director EMEA at EdgeConneX.
“Cloud adoption in Europe is greatly accelerating as evidenced by the growth in multi-cloud and hybrid cloud architectures enabled via elastic connectivity on the Megaport Software Defined Network. Our leading integrations with cloud providers empower enterprises to connect locally to cloud service providers within their region to support data sovereignty and improved application performance. Customers can connect to over 130 different global cloud onramps via the Megaport platform and can enable cloud-to-cloud connections using Megaport Cloud Router to support their global IT architectures. We are happy to grow our valued partnership with EdgeConneX in Europe, as we extend the reach of cloud services further to the edge.” – Peter Hase, Chief Commercial Officer for Megaport
