Megaport Use Cases

Solving critical business challenges

Megaport makes connectivity easy by solving critical business challenges. Discover our real-world solutions below to see how Megaport can transform your business and elevate your IT strategy.

Cloud Connectivity

I want secure, low-latency, and scalable cloud connectivity.

Challenge:

High costs, lack of security, and unreliability often associated with connecting to the cloud via the public internet.

Solution:

Megaport enables dedicated connectivity between your data centre and leading Cloud Service Providers (CSPs) on our market-leading, globally distributed SDN. Connecting to the cloud via Megaport means secure and reliable deployment of workloads via direct connectivity that negates the unreliable public internet and ensures predictable network performance. With scalable bandwidth, you can select only what you need, and scale bandwidth up and down as needs dictate.

Data Centre Interconnection

I want a flexible solution to manage my workloads between data centres.

Challenge:

Complexity, time, and high costs of shifting data between data centres.

Solution:

Megaport enables you to provision dedicated, private, and reliable connections between data centres within metros, nationally, and internationally in under 59 seconds. You have the freedom and flexibility to manage your workloads between data centres via scalable bandwidth which means you can scale on demand and only pay for what you need.

Internet Exchange

I want to gain access to Software as a Service (SaaS) providers such as Office 365 and G Suite.

Challenge:

High costs, performance, and capacity of connecting to SaaS providers via the public internet.

Solution:

Customers are able to peer with global leading service providers through Megaport’s Internet Exchange, MegaIX. Peering via MegaIX reduces costs, increases performance, and ensures a stable and reliable network to share and source traffic due to bypassing traditional layers of networks on the public internet. You can achieve high-bandwidth and high-performance private connections to SaaS providers and Content Distribution Networks (CDNs).

Multicloud Strategy

I want to build a multicloud strategy that is dynamic, cost-effective, and easy to manage.

Challenge:

Protection against vendor lock-in and tackling the high costs and complexity of diversifying workloads between multiple Cloud Service Providers (CSPs) as well as the difficulty of managing this strategy once in place.

Solution:

The Megaport SDN gives you access to connect to the global leading CSPs including Google Cloud Platform, AWS Cloud, Alibaba Cloud, Oracle Cloud, and Microsoft Azure; with this choice, you can easily diversify your workloads across multiple cloud services for best performance, redundancy, and to avoid vendor lock-in. You only pay for the bandwidth you use, so connecting to multiple services is more cost-effective than traditional models. You can easily manage multiple connections from one Port and continue to tailor your multicloud strategy from our easy-to-use Portal.

Hybrid Cloud Strategy

I want to build a hybrid cloud strategy so my business-critical data remains on-premise and my everyday workloads are deployed to the public cloud.

Challenge:

Complexity and security risks of managing workloads between on-premise (private) cloud and public cloud environments.

Solution:

Megaport simplifies your hybrid cloud strategy by enabling dedicated private connectivity to on-premise facilities and direct connectivity to the public cloud from one place. The Megaport SDN enables access to the global leading CSPs with low latency, high-performance, and scalable connections for your everyday workloads. Our direct connectivity solution ensures that your business-critical or sensitive data is securely and reliably deployed to your on-premise, or private cloud, environment.

Redundancy/Backup Solutions

I need an everyday redundancy solution for my workloads as well as a quick way to backup my data in a disaster situation.

Challenge:

High costs of running redundancy connections as well as time, cost, and security risks of backing up data via the public internet.

Solution:

Megaport enables direct and dedicated connectivity between data centres and to cloud environments to negate the use of the public internet. This means reliable, secure, and low-latency connections between your main premises and your redundancy environment (whether a second data centre or cloud environment). Scalable bandwidth enables you to run redundancy connections at minimum bandwidth and dial up when you need to backup large amounts of data such as in a disaster situation.

Short Term, High Traffic Needs

I want a flexible solution to manage my workloads between data centres.

Challenge:

Potential latency, network bottlenecks, and loss of information often associated with transferring time-sensitive data via the public internet.

Solution:

Megaport enables direct connectivity and ensures a private, dedicated, and high-performance network to avoid public internet bottlenecks. You can complete real-time data transfers, such as streaming live events, with optimum speed and capacity, and avoid downtime and loss of information. Scalable bandwidth enables you to dial up you connection to maximum capacity during your real-time transfer and dial back down when finished.

B2B

I want to gain access to, and exchange services with, a range of global service providers.

Challenge:

Complexity in accessing many leading service providers for B2B exchanges from one place.

Solution:

Customers who join the Megaport Network gain access to Megaport Exchange: our neutral and inclusive marketplace of service providers at their fingertips. Megaport enables rapid and agile connectivity to any service provider on the Megaport Exchange and provides an easy, self-serve environment to browse providers on a single interface and easily provision connections.
