Box Scales Up its Cloud Storage in Equinix Data Centers

Box, which delivers cloud storage to enterprises and consumers, has selected Equinix data centers as a key part of its growing infrastructure.

Equinix said it worked with Box to develop a comprehensive strategy for distributing its growing global network via the global footprint of Equinix International Business Exchanges. Specifically, Box initially moved its infrastructure into an Equinix Silicon Valley facility and recently added infrastructure in Equinix data centers around the globe including Chicago, Ashburn, Va., Amsterdam, Sydney, Hong Kong and Tokyo.

"With Equinix, we know we’ll get consistently high performance and reliability across our data centers. In addition, having our largest customers just a cross connect away helps us forge stronger business relationships. Other colocation sites give you four walls. Equinix is a partner that cares about our business and helps us connect with a global marketplace of partners and customers," stated Stefan Apitz, vice president of Operations, Box.
