Megaport and NTT Singapore have jointly launched NexConnect Cloud Service, a new platform that gives Singapore’s enterprises access to elastic, on-demand connections to multicloud solutions.
NexConnect Cloud Service leverages Megaport's global Software Defined Network (SDN) to give customers direct and private access to an ecosystem of Cloud Service Providers (CSPs) from NTT's Serangoon data center in Singapore.
“Singapore is an incredibly important location for cloud in Southeast Asia, and we've experienced increased demand for flexible, multicloud solutions in the region,” comments Joshua Munro, executive vice president, Asia Pacific, Megaport.
“NTT's Serangoon data center in Singapore has a direct connection to the Asia Submarine-cable Express (ASE) which enables ultra-low latency connections between major cities in Asia,” adds Munro.
“With NTT Singapore's unique, high-performance infrastructure integrated with the Megaport SDN, the NexConnect Cloud Service will enable significant optionality for Singapore enterprises and the rest of Asia Pacific as they architect their IT strategies.”
