Partner Spotlight: ROOT Data Center

Filed under:

“The partnership between ROOT Data Center and Megaport removes the barriers to cloud adoption, providing customers with a more flexible option to leverage public cloud services in conjunction with colocation. Their legacy applications can remain in ROOT’s colocation facilities, while cloud-ready applications can seamlessly migrate to various CSPs and their specific global regions using a single cross-connect to Megaport from our Montréal data centers.”
