Megaport provides access to more than 350 service providers, including Alibaba, AWS, Google Cloud, IBM Cloud, Microsoft Azure, Nutanix, Oracle Cloud, Salesforce, Rackspace and SAP.

"Leading Edge Data Centres chose to partner with Megaport to provide our customers choice when they connect to the cloud," said Leading Edge Data Centres CEO Chris Thorpe.
