Megaport Cloud Router
Simply deploy and manage private connections between multiple cloud providers.
Overcome Multi-Cloud Management Challenges
Multi and hybrid cloud are the most popular cloud deployment models. Although providing increased flexibility, they also bring significant management challenges. Moving data between cloud service providers (CSPs) can be slow, expensive, and complex. To tackle these challenges, phoenixNAP has given organizations access to Megaport Cloud Router (MCR) directly from our Phoenix data center. By circumventing the public internet while accessing cloud services, MCR enables data transfer that is secure, flexible, and fast.
Deploy a virtual router close to your actual cloud onramp for low-latency data transfer.
Direct cloud-to-cloud connectivity enables advanced network security.
Software Defined Networking supports fast, easily scalable deployment and provisioning.
What is the Megaport Cloud Router?
Megaport Cloud Router (MCR) is a managed virtual routing service helping organizations establish an 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 reduces complexity of network routing management.
