As a tech start-up, strong two-way partnerships are important to us to underpin our credibility and reputation, as well as support our ability to publicise our offering on a wider scale. Our partner ecosystem is a key part of our business focus, and as part of that we want to celebrate some of our partners and talk about how we can bring better services to our customers, together.
In the first of a series of partner spotlights, we want to talk about the Equinix and Cloud Gateway partnerships, and how we work together to provide you with the flexibility to support a genuine multicloud strategy.
Equinix connects the world’s leading businesses to their customers, employees and partners inside the most interconnected data centres, globally. In 52 markets across ﬁve continents, Equinix is where companies come together to realise new opportunities and accelerate their business, IT and cloud strategies. They operate the only global interconnection platform, sparking new opportunities that are only possible when companies come together.
In the spirit of partnerships, we knew that Equinix would not only be a fantastic technology partner but that their business ethos to be vendor agnostic and help customers to avoid unnecessary lock-in contracts is the same as ours.
Together, we want to enable companies to embrace hybrid cloud and multicloud strategies.
Support your digital transformation:
We offer you maximum choice with over 1700 network and 2900 cloud and IT service providers to connect to at a fast pace, which keeps costs low.
Lowering your risk and giving maximum visibility:
You can protect and log your traffic flows, pushing all traffic through a secure enforcement core which ensures full visibility for improved risk and compliance management.
Giving you optimum choice:
As mentioned, we want to ensure that you can connect to any IP-based technology, infrastructure vendors, cloud service providers and network service providers, including connectivity to the PSN and HSCN. Choose and change services as and when you need.
Accelerate your time to market:
Reach everywhere, interconnect everyone and integrate everything. Really, anything is possible for your business and connection needs. All through one fast and easy connection, keeping your network agile.
When our partnership was first announced, our CEO, Justin Day, said: “Organisations are increasingly embracing multi and hybrid cloud strategies and taking them seriously, rather than seeing it as something to aspire to. Partnering with Equinix will allow us to offer customers our rapid, flexible and secure cloud connectivity platform, backed by Equinix’s extensive physical infrastructure. This will ultimately help businesses reach the market faster and help them maximise their competitive advantage.” Read more in the press release.
If we can help you achieve any of the above, don’t hesitate to get in contact.
