How NaaS Enables Direct Access to Leading Cloud Services
Network as a Service is providing cloud service providers with the ability to extend their reach quickly, enabling more customers to connect to their services easily.
FREMONT, CA: A leading global Network as a Service (NaaS) provider, Megaport, has launched Network as a Service (NaaS) in Japan. This expansion of services to Japan will enable direct access to pioneering cloud services via a single global network, including Equinix TY2, TY4, and AT TOKYO CC1. Megaport has planned to extend the services in NTT DATA Otemachi, NEC Kanagawa, Colt Shiohama, MC-Digital Realty Mitaka, and TELEHOUSE TOKYO Otemachi in future. Customers can now take full advantage of direct connections to Azure, AWS, Oracle, and IBM cloud onramps in Japan. Megaport connects more than 525 enabled data centers and 141 cloud onramps. It allows businesses in Japan to seamlessly and directly access cloud and IT services on a global level without the necessity to manage sophisticated network infrastructure.
Businesses with global IT footprints can take advantage of Megaport's presence in Japan immediately to connect to key data centers on demand. Megaport expedites the growth of hybrid cloud capabilities to streamline IT between service regions, cloud regions, and data centers. It supports data growth and the localization of mission-critical applications. According to IDC, the Japanese cloud market has entered a period of maturity, representing an extensive opportunity for cloud networking to promote the ongoing adoption of cloud services throughout. The company brings strong value to both end-users and partners by broadening the choice of service providers, enabling greater access to direct cloud connectivity.
