Without physical infrastructure, you can leverage cloud to cloud networking, private peering between leading public Cloud, IaaS and SaaS providers, and direct connectivity to any provider on the Megaport Software Defined Network. There is no need to own and maintain equipment and no IP address or Autonomous System Numbers to procure. MCR takes the complexity out of getting connected at Layer 3 and opens up new possibilities for virtualised networking.

Private Connectivity Between Service Providers

MCR enables private multicloud access with no physical infrastructure required.

MCR Multicloud


You require private multicloud connectivity between two chosen Cloud Service Providers, for example, AWS (Service Provider 1) and Microsoft Azure (Service Provider 2), but do not own any physical infrastructure.


You can provision an MCR to connect directly between multiple leading Cloud Service Providers on our Ecosystem. By leveraging our global Network, there is no need to bring multiple connections back to a data centre you manage.

Global Expansion Strategy

MCR enables connectivity between global routing zones to expand and scale your business.


You are a VoIP provider operating from New Zealand. You want to scale your business globally. You require cost-effective, fast, and secure connectivity to expand your business to three new markets outside of this region.


You can provision an MCR for on-demand, private connectivity from your data centre into locations such as London, Ashburn, and Sydney. This rapidly extends your global reach into these new markets, without the need for physical infrastructure, and at a fraction of the cost.

Private Hybrid Cloud Connectivity

An MCR with a Megaport enables hybrid connectivity between a private data centre environment and cloud environment.

MCR Hybrid Cloud Scenario


You are connected to a Megaport via a physical cross connect in your closest location: Miami. You require private connectivity between your Megaport and AWS (Service Provider 1) and Microsoft Azure (Service Provider 2) environments.


You can provision an MCR in Ashburn to establish an inter-cloud gateway to make routing decisions remote from your physical Megaport. You can then pass traffic only destined for your Megaport back via your VXC to your data centre for private hybrid cloud use.
