You can now use zenConsole to instantly interconnect your Bare Metal Cloud instances in different regions. Previously, customers had to contact us to manually connect cross-region instances, which carried a longer lead time and slower deployment. Through Zenlayer Cloud Router and our massive global private network, you can enjoy faster, more secure data transmissions between your instances around the world by keeping your traffic off public networks.
Megaport Limited (ASX: MP1) ("Megaport"), a global leading Network as a Service (NaaS) provider, and Zenlayer, a leading global edge cloud services provider, entered into a strategic partnership to expand the global reach of their networks to more than 800 locations across six continents to their joint customers. This joint offering enriches Zenlayer’s coverage in developed markets and extends the offering to Megaport customers in emerging markets.
While layer 2 networks (point-to-point networks) have their use and are generally fine for data transfers between a few nodes, they’re not built to scale and can become a nightmare for IT teams to manage as your business operation grows. Layer 3 networking enables an easily scalable, full mesh network that reduces operating costs while simplifying IT infrastructure and improving resource management. Plus, layer 3 networks are inherently more efficient at data transmission due to automatic routing.
