Technical Solution Services


Equinix Solution consultants work with a diverse range of organisations to design, build and run a bespoke IT platform that fits their business priorities, budget and timelines. We provide the skills and expertise to help create secure and reliable computer storage, network and back-up solutions, tailored to current and future business needs. Maximum flexibility and the choice of competing tier one vendors inside our ecosystem means Equinix Managed Service colocation customers benefit from the ability to maintain control of strategic decision making.



Choose from two virtualised storage and computer deployment options – shared and private. Equinix shared IaaS solution offers dedicated processing power with shared storage, networking and management on our secure platform. Our private option provides maximum security and dedicated computing on your own network, storage and management hardware, all housed in a dedicated rack. Both options enable connection to public cloud services to create a hybrid environment.



Reduce initial costs by eliminating investments in assets as well as concerns around managing multiple software licences.
