Megaport’s expansion into the US interconnection marketplace got a big boost today with the announcement of a new alliance agreement. The Australian-based Megaport has teamed up with the national data center provider CyrusOne in a deal that brings it to 13 new locations in one fell swoop.
Under the agreement, Megaport will be leveraging the National IX fabric that CyrusOne has built out, taking it into new locations in Austin, Dallas, Chicago, Cincinnati, Houston, Phoenix, San Antonio, and northern Virginia. CyrusOne customers, meanwhile, will be able to take advantage of Megaport’s elastic fabric, API, portal, and applications to better scale their bandwidth across multiple service providers and clouds.
Megaport has been building out its US footprint over the last few quarters, replicating the model it has been successful with down under. With 15 of its first-phase nodes already in place and CyrusOne as a new partner, it’s clear they weren’t kidding around. For a deeper look at where they are going, you can read this Industry Spotlight we did with CEO Denver Maddux a few months back.
