We have our data center in the Chicago QTS facilities. As a result, we have access to cloud network carriers such as Megaport. We combined QTS, Megaport, and our existing VMware vSphere 6.7 deployment, resulting in a 10Gbps hybrid-infrastructure.
Megaport enables a shared 10Gbps connection to each of the public cloud providers in our study via a single 10Gbps port. The link is more than fast enough to support a distributed software-defined data center.
The study’s scope included VMware Cloud on AWS (VMC on AWS), Google VMware Engine (GVE), and Oracle Cloud VMware Solution. Azure didn’t have a generally available solution at the time of testing. Azure was also unresponsive to our inquiries for early access.
