After the launch of Console Connect in Global Switch’s Singapore Tai Seng data center, the platform has now been extended to all Global Switch locations and is currently available. With the collaboration, Console Connect users will have an extensive choice of on-net data centers and cloud access points in Europe’s largest and most interconnected data center hubs.
PCCW also stated that the Console Connect network-as-a-service platform is fully integrated with the world’s leading cloud, SaaS, IoT, and IX providers, including Google Cloud, AWS, IBM Cloud, Microsoft Azure, Oracle Cloud, Alibaba, Tencent, and NAVER Cloud. Therefore, users will be able to instantly access this ecosystem of clouds, SaaS providers, and network, and seamlessly connect to over 300 data centers worldwide.

“We are delighted to extend our collaboration with Global Switch by bringing the Console Connect platform into all of its data centers worldwide. The addition of eight on-net data centers in Europe forms part of a major expansion plan for the platform across the region, while the new facilities in Sydney and Hong Kong further consolidates our position as a market leader for on-demand fabric in Asia Pacific.”
