Enter, a provider of network and cloud services based in Italy, will offer near-instant access to its Enter Cloud Suite (ECS) and services ecosystem through Megaport’s global elastic interconnection network, built on software-defined networking (SDNs).
Enterprise and carrier customers connected to the Megaport network in Amsterdam, as well as any other Megaport-enabled locations, can now directly connect to Enter’s innovative cloud platform and tap into Megaport’s global footprint.
“Megaport’s SDN enables us to extend direct connectivity to our cloud services beyond Milan, Frankfurt and Amsterdam to address increasing customer demand for network and cloud services across Europe and beyond,” said Milko Ilari, head of International Business & Strategy at Enter. “The relationship also enables automated provisioning to Enter Cloud Suite via dedicated connections from any Megaport-enabled data center.”
Enter Cloud Suite is the first European, OpenStack-based cloud infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) solution. ECS enables the orchestration of servers, storage, networks, domain name system (DNS) and content delivery network (CDN) through an intuitive graphical interface or advanced API. The highly available, resilient and scalable offering can be delivered autonomously or as a fully managed, turnkey solution that encompasses architecting, design, setup, migration, and ongoing maintenance and support.
Wholly owned and operated, and built upon secure open source technology, Enter Cloud Suite is compliant with European data protection and privacy legislation. It is one of the official cloud platforms of 52 European institutions and agencies, such as the European Parliament and Court of Justice.
