Beyond.pl data center campus available worldwide via Megaport connectivity services

Beyond.pl Stand: H48

The partnership responds to the rising demand from multinational enterprises for connectivity services that are easily managed, available on demand, and fully secure. The launch of a Megaport point of presence (PoP) at the Beyond.pl Data Center Campus in Poznan, Poland makes it possible to rapidly establish connections between the Polish operator and data centers worldwide while offering access to public cloud and SaaS solutions.

The addition of Megaport cloud connectivity services to Beyond.pl’s portfolio will provide Beyond.pl’s Polish and international customers with direct, secure access to more than 360 cloud and SaaS providers, including AWS, Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud, Oracle Cloud, Nutanix, Alibaba Cloud, and Salesforce, with minimal latency and using any configuration possible (multicloud, hybrid cloud, and cloud to cloud). Additionally, Beyond.pl’s customers will be able to create direct, cost-efficient connections to Megaport’s global ecosystem of  700+ data centers while Megaport customers will gain access to a new colocation site strategically located half way between Berlin and Warsaw, offering the highest levels of security and fully powered with green energy.

– Poland is one of the fastest-growing emerging data center markets in Europe. This is being driven by growing demand for IT and cloud services in Poland- says Eric Troyer, Chief Marketing Officer, MegaportWe’re pleased to partner with Beyond.pl. Customers will not only benefit from its unique colocation offering but can also simplify their data center interconnect and cloud deployment strategies with fast, secure and on-demand Network as a Service capabilities to connect their evolving IT architectures to the services and locations that power their business.

Megaport’s connectivity services at Beyond.pl will become available by the end of September 2021. The services will be offered through a private SDN, bypassing the public internet. Access to these services will be provided through a Megaport PoP located at Data Center 2 in Poznan, Poland which is one of the most energy efficient facilities in Central Europe (PUE 1.2) and 100% powered with green energy. As a  facility with the highest security standard: Rated 4 (ANSI/TIA-942), it offers 99.995% guaranteed service availability, with 100% uptime since commissioning in 2016.

– The partnership between Beyond.pl and Megaport offers companies with a regional and global footprint new options for colocating their IT infrastructure. Today, many companies are searching for alternative data center locations due to the rising costs of services and relatively low supply of available power in the traditional FLAP-D markets. Thanks to a significantly lower cost of energy, which is 100% green, by selecting Beyond.pl companies  can reduce the cost of colocation services by up to 30-40%. And the collaboration with Megaport will allow our  customers to optimize their connectivity to key data centers globally and a wide range of public cloud providers from one of the three most secure data centres in Europe – says Wojciech Stramski, CEO, Beyond.pl.

Establishing connectivity between Beyond.pl and external cloud providers or operators of other data centers is simple. Connections are set up in just a few minutes through the Megaport customer portal which allows bandwidth to be adjusted flexibly as needed.

The partnership with Megaport is yet another milestone in the development of Beyond.pl’s connectivity options. In March 2021, the operator launched the Beyond East-West Corridor, a high-capacity telecommunication corridor between Poznan, Poland and Frankfurt with round trip latency below 11 milliseconds. In parallel, Beyond.pl continues to invest in its campus infrastructure following the announcement made in September 2020. Following the completion of the investment, the campus will reach a total power of 42 MW (megawatts) and will be one of the biggest colocation facilities of  its kind in Central Europe.
