Connection is vital to the success of any cloud strategy. But we know that one-to-one connection is not enough; the industry needs interconnection - the ability for leading service providers and businesses to come together and connect in many locations in a variety of ways.
As the global interconnection platform for the world's leading businesses, Equinix has become the home of the interconnected cloud, a place where businesses and leading cloud service providers around the world come together and securely connect in many locations in a variety of ways to accelerate their cloud visions.
For cloud service providers, we offer the unmatched global data centres, advanced interconnection solutions, established ecosystems and world-class partner and channel programmes needed to achieve differentiation, exceptional delivery and growth.
And for enterprises, we offer access to 500+ cloud service providers - more than anyone else. And we host 1,100+ network service providers to help enterprises build private, public or hybrid clouds. Equinix offers direct connections to the industry's leading cloud service providers, such as Amazon Web Services (AWS), Cisco, Google, IBM and Microsoft. These companies are building their infrastructure into our data centres and telling their customers to "Meet me at Equinix." Direct connections to multiple clouds are available through cross connects, Ethernet services and Equinix Cloud Exchange™. Direct connections boast higher performance and bypass the public internet with its potential bottlenecks and security concerns.
Equinix Cloud Exchange takes cloud interconnection to a new level by offering direct, instant and simultaneous connection to multiple clouds from a single port. This one-to-many or many-to-many interconnection enables our customers to scale to exactly the cloud they need, whenever they need it. It's the kind of interconnection that expands what's possible and leads to business opportunities that might otherwise get missed.
Equinix Cloud Exchange combines the automated interconnection of cloud, network and managed service providers with advanced service orchestration to create fast, flexible, direct connections to multiple cloud services simultaneously - the type of connections needed for companies to build and scale hybrid clouds.
Cloud services need stringent performance levels and complex integrations to succeed. Platform Equinix is where complex IT solutions come together.
