SAN FRANCISCO (PRWEB) October 24, 2018
Foghorn Consulting, Inc., a Silicon Valley Cloud enablement leader, has partnered with leading Network as a Service provider Megaport Limited. This new partnership will enable Foghorn customers to gain access to and benefit from Megaport’s unparalleled worldwide ecosystem of managed service providers and hyperscale cloud providers.
Over the past ten years Foghorn has made it their mission to maximize the efficiency and efficacy of the cloud while minimizing the costs for their enterprise clients. Their proprietary FogOpsⓇ offerings have consistently delivered application performance improvements and cost savings for their clients. Foghorn’s agile team of cloud veterans has built, migrated and optimized complex high availability cloud ecosystems on Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud platforms.
Over the past five years Megaport has emerged as a market leader in Software Defined Networking (SDN). The Megaport SDN enables enterprise to provision dedicated, on-demand connectivity to key service providers and data centres including Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud, Oracle Cloud, IBM Cloud, Salesforce, and Alibaba Cloud. In today’s hybrid cloud and multicloud environments these interconnections enable a dynamic, cost effective and right sized solution for low latency, highly resilient cloud and hybrid architectures.
Foghorn advocates the use of infrastructure as code to enable applications to run seamlessly, securely and efficiently on the cloud. Megaport uses software to create an intelligent, dedicated, and elastic network of redundant carriers and cloud providers. With Megaport’s elastic SDN, investments in oversized and often underutilized network capacity are a thing of the past.
“Megaport allows Foghorn to design and implement multicloud workloads with network connectivity that is more performant, more cost effective, and easier to manage,” shares Foghorn CTO Peter Roosakos. “Megaport also allows us to spin up these solutions in record time, a key requirement for our clients who are rapidly innovating.”
“Connectivity is an often overlooked component of cloud engineering,” said Megaport CEO Vincent English. “To ensure peak performance, security, and scalability for cloud-based applications, direct connectivity must be a key consideration in deploying hybrid and multicloud strategies. Foghorn and Megaport provide powerful capabilities that support agile cloud deployments that scale and meet performance requirements. Megaport allows customers to build a network through our intuitive, web-based interface and enable cloud-to-cloud connectivity without the need to manage routing gear.”
With Megaport’s single management portal and near instantaneous elastic capacity, Foghorn’s clients now have a 360 degree solution to connect their data center to the cloud. In today’s agile, development focused IT environment Megaport’s neutral, data center and cloud agnostic technology further enhances an organization’s success in the Cloud.
