ST Telemedia Global Data Centres (STT GDC) has partnered with Megaport for the provision of software-defined networking (SDN)-enabled, elastic interconnection and cloud exchange services in STT Tai Seng 1 data centre in Singapore.

STT GDC plans on utilising Megaport’s capability as a key network provider, provisioning enterprise customers with networking capabilities on a pay-as-you-go basis.

"Megaport offers businesses more dynamic interconnectivity capabilities,” said Christopher Street, group CMO at STT GDC. "STT Tai Seng 1 houses Points of Presence of more than a dozen local and international carriers as well as Singapore Internet Exchange and Australia Singapore Cable.

“The global exchange of data traffic underpins the digital economy, the efficiency of this exchange is in turn dependent on the broad selection of network services and choice of providers that our customers enjoy.

“We recently expanded to add another 4.6MW of capacity in response to strong enterprise customer demand.

"The combination of Megaport’s network as a service and our leading data centre solutions creates a powerful value proposition for our customers to connect and scale with the cloud services they need."

The on-demand, provisioning will happen in 59 seconds or less, and customers will be provided with additional flexibility for multi-cloud architectures through top-tier service providers such as Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud Platform, Alibaba Cloud, IBM Cloud, Oracle Cloud, and Salesforce as well as access to over 250 managed service providers and networks.

"We are thrilled to have STT GDC as our partner,” said Vincent English, CEO of Megaport. "The growing demand for interconnectivity and peering services in Asia Pacific is placing Singapore as a regional innovation hub to deliver connectivity services across the region.

"STT GDC is well-positioned to support the growth of cloud adoption as enterprises in the Asia Pacific undergo a digital transformation.

"Extending the reach of cloud services to STT GDC is a testament to our commitment to neutrality and making connectivity easy."

As a specialist in elastic interconnection services, Megaport services can align network economics with cloud service models, providing the ability to right-size capacity by scaling bandwidth up and down in real-time with flexible terms.
