Who we are
Megaport was founded in Australia by industry expert and entrepreneur Bevan Slattery (iSeek, PIPE Networks, NextDC, Asia Pacific Data Centre Trust, SubPartners, Superloop, Cloudscene) who aimed to create an Software Defined Networking (SDN) platform that gave customers access to elastic interconnection services that align with cloud-based models. The vision was to give customers greater simplicity, control, and choice over how they connected to, and between the services, applications, providers, and networks they needed for their businesses.
What we do
Megaport’s innovative interconnection platform transforms the way businesses connect. We offer fast, secure connectivity services on a flexible, pay-as-you-go basis with no setup fees. Our platform provides real-time provisioning, allowing our customers to deploy services almost immediately, compared to setup times anywhere from one week to several months under traditional models. Connection speed, capacity, and destination can be varied almost instantaneously through a self-serve online portal.
Customers can easily access on-premises, cloud, and third-party application environments on Megaport’s virtualised platform, removing the need to be physically collocated with an application environment. Almost two thirds of customer connections are to the major Cloud Service Providers – AWS, Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud Platform, Oracle Cloud, IBM Cloud, Alibaba, Salesforce, Nutanix, and SAP. Megaport has connections to over 170 cloud on-ramps in 85 Cloud regions.
How we do it
Our Global Reach
Megaport has installed server equipment in over 366 data centres, which are redundantly connected using leased fibre – typically dark fibre, leased bandwidth, and sub-sea capacity. This physical network connects 680+ enabled data centres globally, over which Megaport runs its services.
Our Software Defined Network
Megaport operates the largest Software Defined Network (SDN) platform globally, providing our 1,850+ customers the ability to connect to 680+ enabled data centres in 128 cities throughout 23 countries in North America, Europe, Asia, and Australia. Our Network as a Service solutions remove the need for customers to invest in direct, physical, point-to-point interconnection. We operate a standards-based, neutral platform, and have partnerships with 102 unique data centre operators, allowing our customers to connect to applications without the limitations of being tied to a particular data centre operator or geographic connection location.
Megaport’s Marketplace is an online hub where global service providers and enterprise customers interconnect. Customers can efficiently multi-source IT services by connecting to a broad range of private and public transit services, cloud providers, managed services, and many others, right down to hosted voice services – all on a single platform and bypassing the public internet. Service providers on our network can showcase their brand, reach global enterprises, scale to new markets, and provide solutions for businesses worldwide.
Our Flexible Pricing
The “glue” that brings these elements of our business together is Megaport’s flexible pricing plan. This provides customers a pay-as-you-go model and right-sized bandwidth, mirroring how businesses consume their cloud services.
Strong, Resilient Growth
Megaport’s innovative interconnection platform helps companies accelerate their digital transformation by offering fast, secure connectivity services on a flexible, pay-as-you-go basis with no setup fees. Our SaaS-based model has delivered resilient, recurring revenues that have grown as customers have added additional services to facilitate the increasing complexity of their IT networks.
