Companies team to provide global SDN-enabled elastic interconnection and Internet Exchange service

The US subsidiary of software-based elastic interconnectivity provider, Megaport Limited (ASX: MP1) has signed an alliance agreement to become Amsterdam Internet Exchanges' (AMS-IX) exclusive global elastic Cloud interconnection partner.

According to the companies, the partnership means customers can access the AMS-IX peering service across the Megaport fabrics, while customers of AMS-IX’s Internet Exchanges can take advantage of Megaport’s elastic connectivity solutions to network and Cloud service providers.

The joint venture also looks to coalesce interconnection use-cases including multi-Cloud connectivity, exchange of IP traffic peering, API-based ordering and right-sizing of capacity based on customer requirements.

AMS-IX chief executive, Job Witteman, said the partnership will bring a new level of capability to the company's footprint.

“Building on Megaport’s drive to deliver elastic connectivity globally, AMS-IX is excited to partner and expand our independent and distributed peering model as well as boosting the AMS-IX brand globally,” he said.

“AMS-IX has a long history of building critical mass of peering partners on their Internet Exchanges. Connecting the AMS-IX and Megaport fabrics creates greater opportunity for Internet peers to reach desired content, Cloud services and end-user networks," Megaport chief executive, Denver Maddux, added.
