As Quoted from: Hosting Journalist (January 29, 2016)
Wowrack, a global hybrid IaaS solutions provider offering various hosting services including managed hosting, cloud, dedicated servers, colocation and bandwidth delivery, has announced its partnership with Megaport (ASX: MP1) – a Brisbane, Australia-based provider of global SDN-based elastic interconnection.
Through this partnership, Wowrack customers can access Megaport’s elastic interconnectivity services to “quickly and easily” connect to a rich ecosystem of service providers across the Megaport fabric.
Combined with Wowrack’s managed private cloud environments, customers can broaden their reach with hybrid cloud capabilities as well as the ability to move workloads in a dynamic way.
“Our goal to deliver the ability for customers to freely move their data within multiple Cloud Providers – anytime, anywhere, any place – is now a reality,” said Ed Kimm, Chief Revenue Officer, Wowrack. “MegaPort’s virtual cross connect technology allows us to offer true interoperability to our customers, all through an on demand, utility based pricing model.”
The partnership with Megaport would allow Wowrack to further its business model of providing global hybrid IaaS solutions. Using Megaport’s “award-winning” portal, customers can instantly order Virtual Cross Connects (VXCs) to their environments within major public cloud providers. The Megaport API also makes it possible for customers to integrate their ordering and provisioning functions.
“ Wowrack‘s focus on providing its customers with flexibility, choice, and superior service aligns well to our goals as a business,” said Brynn Maddux, Executive Vice President, the Americas, Megaport. “We look forward to working with the Wowrack team to enable elastic interconnection solutions to customers looking for a better way to implement cloud networking solutions in Seattle.”
The announcement follows the news that Megaport’s U.S. subsidiarysigned an alliance agreement to become the exclusive global elasticcloud interconnection partner for Amsterdam Internet Exchange (AMS-IX). AMS-IX will in turn provide its Internet Exchange (peering) service in key Megaport-enabled markets across the globe.
