Megaport Achieves the AWS Outposts Ready Service Designation
Megaport Limited (ASX: MP1) ("Megaport"), a global leading Network as a Service (NaaS) provider, announced today that Megaport has earned an Amazon Web Services (AWS) Outposts Ready Partner designation as part of the AWS Service Ready Program. AWS customers can use Megaport's global, private Software Defined Network to securely connect Outposts racks to AWS Direct Connect service locations, enabling more reliable and performant application migrations and operations to Outposts.
The AWS Service Ready Program provides customers with AWS Partner software solutions that have passed a technical validation for sound architecture and have proven customer success. AWS Outposts Ready Partners offer products that work with Outposts deployments. These products have been tested by Outposts and follow AWS security and architecture best practices. As part of this program, Megaport's solutions come confidently recommended based on technical validation and testing performed by AWS Partner Solutions Architects.
"We're thrilled to be named an AWS Outposts Ready Partner," explained Vincent English, Chief Executive Officer of Megaport. "Many of our customers run applications that have low-latency requirements and must run on-premises, and using Megaport to privately connect Outposts racks to AWS Direct Connect service locations ensures that these applications run reliably and are highly performant."
Megaport and Outposts customers can enjoy the following benefits:
"Being able to ramp up the bandwidth whenever we need allows us to scale our sports visualisation systems at speed and only pay for what we need - that is the most amazing part of using Megaport to connect to AWS," said John Rendall, Head of Technology and Innovation for Animation Research Ltd / Virtual Eye, a multi-award-winning sports graphics production company.
