IDC recognised Equinix as a leader in colocation and interconnection services in this inaugural IDC MarketScape report. Read this competitive assessment of nine interconnection and colocation service vendors to complement your understanding of key benefits of critical infrastructure provider Equinix.


  • Interconnection plus colocation is essential to remove the distance between users, cloud services, ecosystem partners and customers for higher performance and lower network latency
  • Enterprises need to optimise networks to reduce costs and improve scale across strategic locations, simplify hybrid-cloud access and distribute security to manage risk
  • With global interconnection there is an environmental need for improved sustainability. Equinix has a long-term goal of implementing 100% renewable energy
Equinix's strength is the company's comprehensive global footprint that has seen its brand become synonymous with neutral colocation data centres.
