AMSTERDAM – Leaseweb Global, a leading hosting and cloud services provider, today announced the launch of Leaseweb Cloud Connect. A hybrid cloud solution, Leaseweb Cloud Connect enables customers to seamlessly connect their Leaseweb-hosted infrastructure to their public cloud or hyperscaler environment— and to allow sharing of data and applications between them. In partnership with Megaport, a leading Network as a Service provider, Leaseweb Cloud Connect will initially provide connectivity to AWS, with plans already in place to add other leading hyperscalers throughout the rest of the year.

Leaseweb Cloud Connect is designed for businesses that require the flexibility to move workloads between hyperscalers and Leaseweb’s infrastructure in line with changing demands and budgets. Customers will be able to select different connectivity speeds between 100Mbps and 10Gbps, depending on individual project and budget requirements. The new offering provides an elegant, tailored and cost-effective solution to address the lack of customization that many businesses experience when they decide to scale their infrastructure, services, applications, and data within a public cloud environment.


“Leaseweb Cloud Connect provides businesses with an efficient way to build secure networks that interconnect Cloud infrastructures across Leaseweb and public clouds,” said Nikolaos Kolestsas, Product Manager, Leaseweb Global. “The new offering delivers a hybrid cloud solution that allows businesses to use a public cloud for development, PaaS functions, one-off workloads, and big data platforms, all while leveraging Leaseweb for business-critical applications and associated data or specific production environments. Megaport’s Software Defined Network provides the scalable, secure connectivity to cloud onramps to ensure peak performance. This approach minimizes infrastructure costs and increases the speed at which organizations can bring new products and services to market.”

By using Leaseweb Cloud Connect to create a hybrid cloud environment that leverages Leaseweb’s secure and high-performance global network, coupled with a Megaport Connected solution, businesses can develop and distribute their services while gaining more control over their cloud-based infrastructure. Leaseweb Cloud Connect achieves this by providing a fast and secure connection to public cloud, which ensures dynamic and cost-effective allocation of resources across the hybrid cloud environment.

Part of Leaseweb’s Hybrid Connect Concept, Leaseweb Cloud Connect is a Megaport connected solution that is powered by Megaport’s Software Defined Networking technology and integrated with virtual public cloud interfaces and gateways. The Megaport Connected solution offers the broadest reach of cloud onramps across the globe with more than 170 cloud onramps. The collaboration provides Leaseweb with the opportunity to provide greater options to customers in connecting to public cloud infrastructure to design hybrid solutions that scale and perform.

“We are delighted that Leaseweb has chosen our Network as a Service platform to power its new solution,” said Eric Troyer, Chief Marketing Officer at Megaport. “Leaseweb Cloud Connect reinforces Leaseweb’s position within the hybrid cloud provider space and allows Leaseweb to provide an extended Cloud access service to their SMB and start-up customers. We value the partnership with Leaseweb and are excited to be able to support the company’s continued evolution as hybrid and multi-cloud demand continues to grow throughout Europe.”

Leaseweb Cloud Connect is suited to all organizations but offers particular benefits to start-ups and SMBs in the Adtech, Martech, Gaming, and SaaS sectors that are using public cloud providers but are seeking to scale their business—not their costs.

In addition, organizations that complete this free assessment process typically save an average of 30 percent on their cloud infrastructure.

Launched in 2018, Atlas Networks was started with the desire to improve how consulting and cloud services are offered to enterprise organizations. The firm provides end-to-end cloud services, including cloud migration and the optimization of existing cloud infrastructure – all of which have become more relevant due to the current pandemic. In fact, the recent “Flexera 2020 State of the Cloud Report” found that many enterprises expect to increase cloud usage due to COVID-19 and the optimization of existing cloud infrastructure was ranked the top initiative for the fourth year in a row.

In addition to cloud consulting, Atlas Networks offers managed services and WebOps to help drive and stabilize internal IT teams. With over 85 years of combined expertise, the Atlas Networks team acts as an integrated partner that provides 24/7 technical support and the successful deployment, monitoring and smooth operation of mission-critical web applications.

LOS GATOS, CA – Scholarly publishing technology provider, HighWire, is in the process of implementing a new industry-leading data recovery center which is designed to enable full platform functionality and data to be restored within a matter of hours, potentially minutes.

The new recovery service will be deployed to all HighWire customers commencing in July. HighWire’s new managed hosting facility partner, Faction, is a leading enterprise multi-cloud platform-as-a-service provider, VMware partner and strategic Amazon Web Services (AWS) partner. Faction has multiple geographic locations both throughout the U.S. and globally.


This state-of-the-art approach to disaster recovery utilizes an always-on or ‘pilot light’ method whereby critical core elements of HighWire’s data infrastructure are configured and constantly running, but at a diminished, standby capacity. Should the need arise, the architecture can become a fully functioning production environment within a matter of hours – if not minutes.

HighWire has implemented a number of performance tuning and enhancement measures over recent years. The recent COVID-19 traffic surges have demonstrated the robust nature of the delivery infrastructure (for example, traffic on the bioRxiv and medRxiv sites has increased from an average of 4M and 1M unique monthly page views respectively, up to 20M page views in April), while remaining highly responsive with 99.9+% uptime.

This move is the next step in ensuring that HighWire continues to provide the most reliable, most stable, and most scalable hosting services for its customers.

“Leveraging cutting-edge, high quality tools and partners is a critical part of the roadmap for our SaaS offering,” said Todd McGee, VP of Technology, Platform and Innovation at HighWire, “By partnering with Faction to provide rapid and reliable disaster recovery services, we can provide reliable restoration of data at a speed we believe is unparalleled within the industry.”

About HighWire
HighWire is a global provider of digital publishing solutions and platform expertise across all aspects of the publishing life cycle, including content management and hosting, e-commerce, analytics, access and identity management, manuscript submission and tracking.

Born out of Stanford University and now celebrating its 25th year, HighWire is backed by Stanford and private equity firm Accel-KKR, recently listed as the top founder-friendly investors for entrepreneurial partnership. This combination of deep digital understanding, academic expertise and strong financial backing makes HighWire the technology partner of choice for world-leading commercial and academic publishers.

About Faction
Faction is a leading multi-cloud platform-as-a-service provider and VMware partner that provides clients with multi-cloud-attached storage utilizing NetApp and Dell EMC. Additionally, in 2017 Faction was tapped by VMware to be a part of the VMware Cloud on AWS beta program and continues to build services and products around this groundbreaking offering.
