Cloud Network Enablement

Cisco estimates that by 2018, more than three quarters (78%) of workloads will be processed by cloud data centers, with 31 percent of the cloud workloads going to public clouds.

Customize the cloud services you use based on regional or departmental requirements.



Deploy secure and reliable multi-cloud environments.

Through Equinix Cloud Exchange, companies can directly access multiple public cloud service providers in multiple global locations. This enables you to securely extend your enterprise IT resources in a hybrid cloud environment and drop and add services as needed. You can also customize the cloud services you use based on regional or departmental requirements. Automated provisioning of multiple cloud connections simplifies deployment and management of various cloud environments, reducing complexity and costs.

Bypassing the public Internet, along with the congestion and security risks that are prevalent in that environment, ensures that you can create safe, high-performance multi-cloud environments. You can also multi-home your private and public cloud environments to ensure the availability of mission-critical content and applications for disaster recovery/business continuity.


Design, test and deploy high-performance clouds.

Equinix Professional Services combines specialized data center expertise with detailed knowledge of IT infrastructure, networks and clouds to help customers with all phases of data center planning, design, testing and deployment. We will help you select the colocation facilities and network and cloud services that best meet your IT and business objectives.

Our Global Solutions Architects™ will advise you on complex deployments, such as building multi-homed private clouds or deploying hybrid clouds by connecting private clouds to multiple public cloud services colocated inside our IBX data centers. They will also help you test and validate the performance of your IT infrastructure and cloud designs within our global Solution Validation™ Centers to lower your risk and maximize your users' QoE and your return on your IT infrastructure investments.
