EdgeConneX Beefs Up Boston Cloud Connectivity

EdgeConneX will facilitate the availability of direct cloud connectivity to Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure and Google Cloud Platform within its Boston Edge Data Center via the deployment of Megaport’s SDN-based elastic interconnection fabric.

Datapipe and Comcast Business will offer localized cloud migration services to ease enterprise adoption and simplify network connectivity to the cloud.

Datapipe, a leading global managed hosting and cloud services provider, will offer Boston-based cloud integration services, facilitating and managing local enterprises through the appropriate migration to public and hybrid solutions. Comcast Business, which offers Ethernet, Internet, Wi-Fi, voice, TV and managed enterprise solutions to help organizations of all sizes transform their business, is offering its direct and private Ethernet services to the EdgeConneX Boston Edge Data Center (EDC) and will be training its sales team to speed enterprise adoption of hybrid cloud services.

Megaport will provide its elastic interconnection platform, as a Microsoft Azure ExpressRoute connectivity partner, Amazon AWS Direct Connect partner and Google Cloud Platform Carrier Interconnect partner.

“It’s amazing that a top-five enterprise market relies on services hundreds of miles away for critical IT infrastructure,” remarks Clint Heiden, chief commercial officer, EdgeConneX.  “Effective cloud solutions, and thus adoption by enterprises, depends on reliable, fast and secure connectivity.  Furthermore, an effective hybrid implementation is still one that is local to the customer. Boston marks our third rollout of local cloud services, following the May and June announcements of Portland and Detroit, respectively. We plan to continue rolling out these services across our entire global EDC footprint.”
