With the collaboration of Megaport and EdgeConneX bringing multi-cloud access closer to end users, customers can now receive the full promise and benefits of Cloud computing.
EdgeConneX, Megaport, and AWS in Portland Use Case
Public, private, and hybrid cloud solutions deliver management benefits and cost savings. However,connecting to these cloud environments using the public internet often means slow performance and service degradations. With direct cloud connectivity solutions, users gain access to the best paths available, eliminate multiple hops, bypass network transfers, and avoid congestion inherent in the public internet. This direct path to the cloud results in lower latency and faster application performance.
Cloud Connectivity: Improving Response Time
EdgeConneX has worked in partnership with Cedexis, the leader in real user performance measurements to cloud and CDN providers, to validate the improvement of direct cloud latency. Cedexis measured public internet throughout the Portland area using their panel of response time metrics. Comparing this with a sample of similar metrics using the Megaport Software Defined Network (SDN) solution shows significant improvement for cloud connection.
