Megaport Brings Elastic Interconnection to Aqua Comm’s AEConnect

Aqua Comm and Megaport (USA) announced a partnership whereby Megaport will access the Aqua Comms’ America-Europe Connect (AEConnect) subsea cable system, linking New York, Dublin and London, and enable elastic interconnection to its transatlantic subsea cable network. 

This partnership will allow enterprise customers to access transatlantic capacity on AEConnect via Megaport’s global Software Defined Network (SDN), the company said.

“We’re excited to partner with Megaport and enable its enterprise customers to rapidly connect their network to other services and data centres across the world via elastic interconnection to AEConnect,” said Nigel Bayliff, CEO, Aqua Comms. “We’re confident that this initial pact is a precursor to many successful alliances between our companies in the near future.”

As with all Megaport enabled networking services, customers can consume elastic bandwidth on the Aqua Comms systems, pay for what they use and adjust it as their business demands change. Megaport’s estimated ready for service date is targeted for early December 2016, the company informed.

“Megaport enables enterprises to utilize Aqua Comms’ subsea capacity in a way that they haven’t been able to before,” said Denver Maddux, CEO of Megaport. “Enterprises can now directly connect to public cloud providers outside of their own region, on-demand. This opens the door for new use cases and better economics as IT architecture moves towards multi-region, multi-cloud deployments. Directly connecting at the capacity your business needs between regional public and private cloud infrastructure enables redundancy, improved security, and, in general, better performance for cloud-based applications.
