Equinix showcases at Data Centre World 2008
Equinix Inc. (Nasdaq:EQIX), the leading global provider of network-neutral datacentres and Internet exchange services, today announced it is a gold sponsor of Data Centre World which will be held in London from 26-27 February 2008.
Data Centre World is an exhibition and conference that focuses on the datacentre sector and examines the issues surrounding selecting, outsourcing, building and running a datacentre. The conference is free to attend and will provide practical advice on how to improve efficiency and overcome integration and storage issues. Some of the topics that will be covered include mitigating risks resulting from power failure, how to overcome the heat issues, outsourcing and connectivity.
Michael Winterson, VP Sales and Marketing for Equinix in Europe, will join a number of high profile speakers at the event to present “Solving the datacentre crisis�Faster access to next generation datacentres and interconnectivity”.
“Many enterprises do not want to commit to the significant and continued financial investment, nor do they have the resource and expertise to build and maintain an in-house datacentre environment to today's stringent standards of performance,” comments Michael.
“Outsourcing the datacentre element of its infrastructure to a specialist provider like Equinix gives an enterprise the opportunity to take advantage of minimal financial risk, highly specified technical environments, access to a complete range of cost effective network services and ability to focus on the core business.”
Equinix acquired IXEurope in September 2007 and is now the world's market leader in global network-neutral colocation services. With the addition of IXEurope, Equinix now offers datacenters in 17 key markets in North America, Europe and Asia.
