​Megaport Limited has announced the launch of Megaport Exchange.

What they’re claiming is the leader in global software defined networking, Megaport says the marketplace hosted on the Megaport Portal is designed to connect its rich Ecosystem of partners to its global network of customers.

Megaport CEO, Vincent English says Megaport Exchange is an example of their commitment by Megaport to continue evolving and adding value to their customers.

“We’ve added Megaport Exchange to our product suite to enhance the customer experience, enabling them to connect to each other and to partners across our Ecosystem. We are proud to showcase our providers to the market and continue to be the leader in the networking space,” says English.

“Finding a way to match our powerful Ecosystem with our wide customer base was the logical next step for the company and this marketplace aligns perfectly with our vision to make connectivity easy.”

According to Megaport, the new platform will allow customers to search for services and engage with providers to meet their networking needs.

The company affirms Megaport Exchange is a direct response to the increased demand for control of connectivity within the enterprise space, and was designed to meet these needs by creating a data centre and service provider neutral, self-serve marketplace enabling enterprises to access business critical services on demand.

Some of the key features include:

  • Neutral, inclusive marketplace: Megaport is data centre agnostic, meaning that customers can access Megaport Exchange and tap into services by some of the world’s leading technology providers without being locked to a single data centre provider
  • Rapid and agile connectivity: Enterprise customers can find and connect to providers around the world in as little as 59 seconds
  • Self-serve: Putting the control back in the hands of Enterprise customers, they can connect with who they want when they want, to meet their specific business needs, in an easy to use manner
