Robert Rockwood, President of Sabey Data Centers, said, “We have been very thoughtful about cloud connectivity for our data center tenants nationwide.

Dan Meltzer, Sabey Vice President for Sales and Leasing, said, “For all of our customers, having access to cloud services is a vital component of their business strategy. Today’s hybrid workloads consist of cloud and traditional computing. With Megaport as a partner, we now offer fast and easy cloud access to giant providers such as Amazon Web Services, Google Cloud  and Microsoft Azure, as well as customized hybrid cloud solutions that are efficient, reliable, and quick to market.”
