Equinix Unveils Interconnection Oriented Architecture

Equinix unveiled its Interconnection Oriented Architecture (IOA) -- a blueprint for becoming an interconnected enterprise.

Equinix said goal with IOA is to help companies understand, deploy and benefit from interconnection.

Equinix said it developed IOA as a repeatable engagement model that both enterprises and solution providers can leverage to directly and securely connect people, locations, clouds and data.  The goal is to shift the fundamental IT delivery architecture from siloed and centralized to interconnected and distributed, and only the Equinix Interconnection Platform provides the critical building blocks to implement this architecture – a global footprint, dense cloud and service provider ecosystems, and the ability to integrate data and analytics at the edge.

Equinix has a global footprint of more than 100 data centers, combined with its Performance Hub solution, which combines data center elements, networking infrastructure, and cloud access via Equinix Cloud Exchange.

"Results of our recent Enterprise of the Future survey, together with the experience we've gained working with our top global enterprise and service provider customers, indicate that we are on the precipice of a massive interconnection-led reinvention of enterprise IT.  We believe an Interconnection Oriented Architecture is a valuable, repeatable strategy that will guide enterprises on their journey to becoming a truly interconnected enterprise, leveraging Equinix's distinct interconnection and colocation capabilities," Tony Bishop, vice president, vertical marketing, Equinix.
