SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA: Fujitsu announces signing of a new global reseller agreement with Megaport, a provider of computer networking services and solutions, to offer its customers more efficient ways of provisioning connections to cloud services.
The agreement begins with the installation of Megaport point of presence in the Fujitsu Malaga and North Ryde data centres in Perth and Sydney respectively. These datacenters enable Fujitsu’s customers to access an extensive range of cloud platforms using an ‘on-demand’ provisioning tool, including cloud services such as Microsoft Azure and Amazon Web Services.
The Megaport Fabric also expands Fujitsu’s managed services to a wider base of customer segments and service markets byallowing customers to leverage Megaport’s portal or API to order, elastic connectivity.
By providing services that reduce the time and complexity of traditional methods of provisioning cloud services, the alliance empowers customers with comprehensive coverage and speed to market. It also decreases costs and enables real-time provisioning of services across a single platform.
“We are continually looking to add value to our customers by maximising the performance, reliability, security and sustainability of our data offering. This partnership is the next step in our vision to meet the challenges of digital transformation and support our customers’ needs in an increasingly hyperconnected world,” Mike Foster, Chief Executive Officer, Fujitsu- Australia and New Zealand.
“We are truly excited to have a trusted global data leader like Fujitsu joining the Megaport ecosystem. Our alliance enables us to address the need for scalable cloud services in Western Australia with real-time speed and greater optionality. Having Fujitsu’s managed services available across the Megaport Fabric provides great value to our global customers as they execute on their Hybrid IT strategies,” says Denver Maddux, CEO of Megaport.
