Megaport and Bluebird Announce Partnership

Bluebird Network has announced a key partnership with Megaport.

This partnership will provide customers of Bluebird Network and the Bluebird Underground Data Center unprecedented connectivity to leading cloud providers like AWS, Google Cloud, Microsoft Azure, Oracle Cloud, Alibaba Cloud, IBM Cloud, Nutanix, and Salesforce. It will also strengthen customer product offerings and improve support to both data center and network customers.

Customers can expect improved performance through secure end-to-end connections, and secure links to cloud networks. Private, dedicated connections will allow customers to better control where and how their data gets to the cloud.

Additionally, customers will be able to connect to the cloud service provider onramp and location that works best for their network architecture—removing dependency on traditional internet providers, reducing hardware costs, aligning connectivity to cloud models, and opening deployment options and support for hybrid cloud solutions.

Utilizing Megaport’s SDN, Bluebird will directly support customer connections to the destination of their choice including over 300 service providers within the Megaport Ecosystem. Utilizing Megaport Cloud Router (MCR), Bluebird can enable cloud-to-cloud connectivity directly between cloud service providers and manage IP routing capabilities for customers.
