  • AtlasEdge customers to benefit from direct connectivity to leading public cloud providers

London, United Kingdom & Fortitude Valley, Australia – Thursday, 12th January 2023

AtlasEdge, a leading pan-European Edge data centre provider, and Megaport, a leading global
Network as a Service (NaaS) provider, have announced a strategic partnership which will see
AtlasEdge utilise Megaport’s on-demand Software-Defined Network (SDN) across its
expanding portfolio.

The partnership will commence with two of AtlasEdge’s key UK locations becoming Megaportenabled. The sites, which are in London and Manchester, will offer AtlasEdge customers:

  • Choice: Dedicated private access to an industry-leading 243 cloud on-ramps and more than 700 on-net locations
  • Security and Performance: Reliable, direct, private connections that bypass the public internet
  • Marketplace: A global ecosystem of more than 350 service providers, including, AWS, Google Cloud, IBM Cloud, Microsoft Azure, Nutanix, Oracle Cloud, Salesforce, Rackspace and SAP, as well as leading IP Transit, VIOP allowing customers to easily consume services from within the ecosystem.
  • Ease-of-Use: Delivered from the self-service easy-to-use Portal, Megaport services can be enabled and adjusted as required in real time.
  • Optionality: Enable hybrid cloud, multicloud, and cloud-to-cloud architectures via point-andclick provisioning with the intelligent Megaport Cloud Router
  • Performance: Localise applications and terminate traffic closer to the edge where performance matters
  • Scalability: Elastic connectivity supports business needs and aligns to cloud consumption models

The Megaport SDN is then intended to be rolled out to more AtlasEdge locations across Europe,
providing customers with the ability to take a hybrid approach to data storage and computer
functionality. The collaboration is one of many growing partnerships entered into by AtlasEdge and
will play a key role in supporting the company’s ongoing mission to deliver seamless, localised and
ultra-low latency digital infrastructure across the continent.

“This strategic partnership provides our customers with enhanced choice, security, performance and
optionality”, commented Giuliano Di Vitantonio, CEO, AtlasEdge. “We look forward to working closely
with the Megaport team as we continue to build Europe’s leading, next generation edge platform.”

“We are pleased to be partnering with AtlasEdge as part of our growing ecosystem of data centre
partners. Providing Megaport’s leading NaaS platform on AtlasEdge’s sites simplifies cloud
connectivity for customers, enabling them to quickly choose and connect to the services they need,”
said Vincent English, Chief Executive Officer at Megaport.
