Interconnection services provider Megaport has launched a new global marketplace — Megaport Exchange — which it says is designed to connect its ecosystem of providers to its global network of customers.

According to Megaport chief executive Vincent English, Exchange is a direct response to the increased demand for control of connectivity within the enterprise space and was designed to meet these needs by creating a data centre and service provider neutral, "self-serve" marketplace enabling enterprises to access business critical services on demand.

“Megaport Exchange is an example of the commitment by Megaport to continue evolving and adding value for our customers,” he said.

“We’ve added Megaport Exchange to our product suite to enhance the customer experience, enabling them to connect to each other and to partners across our Ecosystem. We are proud to showcase our providers to the market and continue to be the leader in the networking space.

“Finding a way to match our powerful Ecosystem with our wide customer base was the logical next step for the company and this marketplace aligns perfectly with our vision to make connectivity easy.”

English says with  Megaport data centre agnostic, customers can access Megaport Exchange and tap into services by some of the world’s leading technology providers without being locked to a single data centre provider.
