Volta Data Centres, the carrier-neutral data centre, has announced a new strategic partnership with a leading Network as a Service provider Megaport. The new partnership will see Volta provide space within its Central London facility for Megaport to offer its cloud and software defined networking (SDN) solutions to Volta enterprise and carrier tenants.
Volta customers will benefit from secure and scalable connectivity to Megaport’s major cloud service providers such as Amazon Web Services, Alibaba Cloud, Microsoft Azure, IBM Cloud, Oracle Cloud, Salesforce, and Google Cloud Platform. The Megaport ecosystem has over 300 service providers. Customers can provision capacity to key service providers around the globe, on demand and rapidly through Megaport’s intuitive self-serve portal.
Volta’s location in Central London was a major influence in bringing together the two companies. The data centre holds a 100% uptime record for its customers and is used by many of the capital’s major businesses which require high-performance and always-on networks – such as those in the financial services, media and healthcare industries.
Vincent English, CEO at Megaport, said: “Enterprises demand a better way of connecting rapidly to the cloud service providers that are increasingly powering next generation IT strategies. Volta, as a leading provider of data centre services to enterprises, is an excellent partner for Megaport. Its central London data centre represents a substantial opportunity to extend the reach of cloud services directly to where enterprises are housing their mission-critical private and on-premises infrastructure to enable multicloud and hybrid cloud solutions.
Jonathan Arnold, Managing Director, Volta Data Centres, added: “Megaport is a huge brand and this partnership reflects the global importance of Volta services. With Megaport, our customers can now instantly and securely connect to some of the world’s biggest and best cloud platforms and third-party service providers – opening up new services and functionalities for our customers, such as SDN, multicloud connectivity and pay-as-you-go contracting.”
