E-commerce is a dynamic business with peaks and lows in seasonal shopping and during advertising campaign cycles. The cloud is a natural and cost-effective fit for the volatility of e-commerce. You only provision and pay for resources as you need them instead of over-building your IT infrastructure in anticipation of high selling times.
Equinix is the home of the interconnected cloud. Our Platform Equinix™ data centres and Equinix Cloud Exchange™ allow you to bypass the Internet and rapidly deploy and scale cloud computing services - including migrating your e-commerce infrastructure to a hybrid cloud - on demand. Direct, easy access to cloud services allows you to scale your e-commerce capabilities during spikes in customer buying.

To really drive consumer satisfaction and business results, you need a fast network. Today's consumers don't care whether they're accessing your service from a desktop or a mobile device; if you make them wait (even a few seconds), they'll leave and possibly never return. Sometimes, they'll even make the switch to a competitor's site. Clearly, fast network connections - between all the components of the application - play a critical role in your success. So don't wait. Download your copy of this research today and discover the best ways to optimise your network connections.
