Equinix Cloud Exchange Now Reaches 19 Markets Globally

Equinix announced that its Cloud Exchange is now available in 19 markets globally — Amsterdam, Atlanta, Chicago, Dallas, Frankfurt, Hong Kong, London, Los Angeles, New York, Osaka, Paris, Sao Paulo, Seattle, Silicon Valley, Singapore, Sydney, Tokyo, Toronto and Washington, D.C.  The service will add Melbourne and Zurich in the coming months.

The Equinix Cloud Exchange is an advanced interconnection solution that enables seamless, on-demand and direct access to multiple clouds and multiple networks.  The goal is to give enterprises direct access to services for building sophisticated hybrid cloud solutions inside Equinix International Business Exchange (IBX) data centers. Since launching the service in April of 2014, Equinix has added AWS, Cisco, Google, Microsoft, SoftLayer, and others as cloud partners.

So far, the reports that nearly one hundred companies — enterprises, networks and cloud service providers — have joined Equinix Cloud Exchange.

Equinix also cited a rapid global adoption with the addition of network and cloud providers around the globe, including Telefonica, TI Sparkle and IX Reach in EMEA and NTT and Hitachi Data Systems (HDS) in Asia Pacific. For this reason, the company recently acquired Nimbo, a professional services company focused on enterprise cloud infrastructure. Nimbo helps enterprises migrate existing legacy applications into a hybrid cloud infrastructure and connect legacy data centers to the cloud, especially AWS and Microsoft Azure.

In addition, More than 100 companies have deployed Equinix Performance Hub, a distributed network architecture that speeds network and application performance by placing resources closer to end users.

"Enterprises are choosing Equinix not only for our unmatched ecosystem and global footprint, but also because of these solutions that enable them to solve real-world challenges and advance their IT initiatives. With global enterprises like CDM Smith, GP Strategies and HarperCollins utilizing the Equinix Performance Hub and Cloud Exchange solutions, we're further cementing our position as the home of interconnected enterprise clouds," stated Tony Bishop, vice president, global enterprise, Equinix.
