Equinix is in a pretty amazing position as an arms broker for organizations using technology. Not only does it have a massive global footprint of data centers, but it also plays host to a number of public cloud vendors within those data centers. While public cloud vendors are quick to trumpet the opening of a new facility in a far-flung location, often that facility is actually sited within an Equinix facility.
This fact, along with its massive resource pool of fast networks and global spread, has allowed Equinix to offer some pretty compelling solutions to organizations. The fact that a large enterprise can utilize a private, direct connection between a public cloud vendor and its own data center, enabled by Equinix’ own networks, meets their needs in terms of speed and security.
