Dedicated Connectivity to IBM Cloud
Megaport makes it easy to provision fast, secure, and private connections between your data centre and IBM Cloud.
IBM Cloud Direct Link, IBM’s private interconnection service, enables enterprises to directly access IBM’s leading Platform as a Service (PaaS) and Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) capabilities. We provide dedicated connectivity to IBM Cloud Direct Link, via our global Software Defined Network (SDN) from 225+ locations worldwide, in just a few clicks.
Through private connectivity that bypasses the public internet, enterprises benefit from:
- Higher network performance, consistency, and predictability
- Streamlined and accelerated workloads and data migration
- Improved data and operational security
Megaport and IBM provide a powerful solution for enterprises to expand their reach, drive innovation, and build an intuitive hybrid cloud strategy.

How it works
IBM Cloud Direct Link consists of a physical network connection at a number of IBM Points of Presence (PoPs) around the world. These PoPs reside within facilities operated by co-located data centres where Megaport is enabled.
Physical fibre connections (NNIs) at each location between Megaport and IBM are established on IBM Cloud Direct Link routers. These physical connections are maintained between IBM and Megaport.
You can purchase 1Gbps and 10Gbps Ports onto the Megaport Network. Through the portal.megaport.com, VXCs can be ordered in increments of 1Mbps speeds and scale in increments 1Mbps to IBM.
Connect to IBM Cloud through Megaport across North America, Europe and Asia Pacific.
Connect from 225+ Megaported locations to the following supported IBM Cloud Direct Link locations:
Why Megaport and IBM Cloud?
Pay As You Go
No lock-in contracts and Pay As You Go billing minimises your financial commitment
Select a 1Gbps with IBM and then increase or decrease your bandwidth between 1Mbps and 1Gbps, in increments of 1Mbps, at any time with Megaport.
Real Time Provisioning
Once you’re on the Megaport SDN, you can provision connections in 59 seconds.
Maintain connectivity while scaling bandwidth to IBM. This means no downtime when you need to increase or decrease your speed.
Multiple Cloud Regions
Connect to multiple regions from a single interconnection point. This means you can leverage multi-region redundancy at a fraction of the cost.
Access secure, private connectivity throughout our redundant network infrastructure. Your traffic will not transit the public internet.
Our services have no lock-in contracts and no minimum bandwidth requirements so you can get started with minimal financial risk and scale up later as your needs dictate. Click on the link to the right to download our infopaper and find out more.

“Megaport allows us to service our private cloud customers over high speed, low latency links and easy replication of our entire infrastructure between our Data Centres. We heard about Megaport from an account manager in one of our other fibre providers.
The Megaport™ solution has allowed us to meet our fibre link requirements as well as exceeding our expectations in regards to dynamic configuration and also friendly customer support.”

Cloudscene’s partnership with Megaport and AWS provided us the agility and scalability to reach and expand into multiple markets, fast
Sean Bofinger, Technical Architect. Cloudscene
“Megaport provides true flexibility to scale connectivity real-time, up or down at a per Mbps granularity. Another key value to us, both cost and operations wise, is the ability to easily self-provision additional services through the Portal.”
Andre Reitenbach, Managing Director. G-Core Labs
“After a successful customer trial using a Megaport™ VXC, we were able to convert the service from the higher daily rate to the more affordable monthly rate quickly and easily.”
“… we can now seamlessly interconnect to all three of our key public cloud services through a single provider.”
