DRFortress, Megaport Team to Expand Hawaiian Access to Cloud Providers

DRFortress, a carrier-neutral data center and cloud marketplace, launched a new public cloud on-ramp solution alongside network as a service (NaaS) solutions provider Megaport. With this, the companies will offer Hawaiian businesses secure, high-speed access to premier cloud providers via DRFortress’ Cloud Connect.

DRFortress customers will gain dedicated, private access to more than 280 cloud on-ramps and 850+ on-net locations within Megaport’s global network. Moreover, Megaport Cloud Connect will deliver fast, secure connectivity between Hawaii and leading cloud platforms such as Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure, Oracle Cloud Infrastructure, Google Cloud and an array of cloud, network and content service providers.

In addition, Hawaii businesses will be able to reduce network connectivity costs by harnessing a single layer 2 network circuit for high-speed connectivity, ranging from 1G to 100G, and straightforward cross-connections to public cloud providers.

“Our expansion into Megaport’s cloud nodes demonstrates our commitment to drive innovation and foster digital transformation across Hawaii,” said Fred Rodi, founder and co-president, DRFortress. “Megaport Cloud Connect enables us to extend our customers’ reach to the edge globally with direct access to top cloud providers right from our data center.”

“We are setting a new standard for cloud connectivity in Hawaii,” said Megaport CEO, Michael Reid. “The addition of DRFortress into the Megaport’s network enables Hawaii-based businesses to embrace the cloud with confidence, backed by our reliable and high-performance global network.”
