Verizon to Offer Private IP into Equinix Data Centers

Verizon is bringing its Private IP service directly into Equinix’s International Business Exchange (IBX) data centers in major markets around the world.


Verizon recently announced enablement of 100GE access for its Private IP network, giving global enterprise customers faster speeds.

The new partnership with Equinix provides enterprise customers with high-performance, private IP connections into Equinix, which has built an ecosystem of cloud services available through its data centers. Verizon also offers reporting and monitoring tools and portals with its Private IP solution. Fully integrated solutions from Verizon + Equinix will be available by the end of 2013.

"Verizon and Equinix are market leaders, and the new alliance we have formed will provide customers of both companies the foundation to transform their businesses,” said John Stratton, president, Verizon Enterprise Solutions. “Whether it is e-commerce applications, big data, media and entertainment or cloud computing, enterprises need to quickly and securely access and move information from various points around the world.”

"By leveraging Verizon’s Private IP Service and Equinix data center and interconnection services, customers can count on high levels of security, reliability and performance as they grow their businesses and expand into new markets,” said Equinix CEO and President Steve Smith. “This will also enable customers to use Verizon’s network to reach more than 300 cloud service providers inside Equinix data centers."


Last month, Equinix expanded its rollout of AWS Direct Connect Service to its International Business Exchange (IBX) data centers in Seattle (SE2 and SE3).

AWS Direct Connect provides a private connection to Amazon Web Services (AWS) via a cross connect at the Equinix data center.  It can also be used to connect to the AWS GovCloud (US) from all existing AWS Direct Connect locations in North America.

Existing Equinix customers can connect to AWS Direct Connect inside the Seattle data center.  Customers can achieve millisecond latency between their infrastructure and AWS infrastructure.

Since the roll out of AWS Direct Connect in Equinix’s Ashburn, Virginia data center campus, AWS Direct Connect has expanded to Equinix locations in Seattle, Silicon Valley, Singapore, Sydney and Tokyo. Equinix customers such as Badgeville, Box, Carpathia Hosting and NetApp are using AWS Direct Connect to lower network costs into and out of AWS, bypassing the public internet.
