How to Streamline Cloud Networking with MCR
Megaport Cloud Router is a managed virtual routing service that helps organizations establish on-demand Layer 3 private connectivity between different networks or service providers. It virtualizes routing services and makes intelligent routing decisions on your behalf, ensuring direct, private, and secure cloud-to-cloud traffic. It enables low-latency data transfer between different services with added security and reduced TCO.
MCR operates by connecting two or more independent Virtual Cross Connect (VXC) services in a single routing domain. Interconnecting multiple services through MCR supports multi-cloud or hybrid-cloud computing without the need for equipment ownership or maintenance. Controlled through an intelligent interface running on Megaport’s Software Defined Networking (SDN) infrastructure, MCR helps you greatly reduce the complexity of network routing management.
What Can You Do with MCR?
MCR lets you manage a low-latency, high-privacy connections with ease. Optimize your business-critical workloads and seamlessly set up a multi-region network.
- Set up a private network between multiple cloud and on-prem services without advanced network engineering knowledge
- Scale routing throughput via four speed tiers: 1 Gbps, 2.5 Gbps, 5 Gbps, or 10 Gbps
- Reduce data transfer latency by enabling direct connections among different CSPs
- Utilize Border Gateway Protocol (BGP) and Multi Exit Discriminator (MED) for VXC prioritization
- Quickly turn BGP on or off through the BGP shutdown toggle option
- Add MCR connections to Google Cloud Platform through Google API integration
