Highlights / Key Facts
- With its global footprint of more than 100 data centers, combined with its Performance Hub solution, which combines data center elements, networking infrastructure, and cloud access via Equinix Cloud Exchange™ to improve application performance on a global scale,
Equinixis the ideal partner to help companies enable an Interconnection Oriented Architecture. This combination of global reach and service provider density allows enterprises to bring their applications, data and networks closest to their users, customers and business partners – whether deploying in a cloud environment or a private infrastructure at the edge.
- Analysts agree on the need for and benefits of IOA. A recent report from
451 Research, "Interconnection 101," examined the critical importance for companies to connect with each other to exchange data traffic. It also profiled the rise of interconnection itself as a viable business, with facilities such as Equinix's, where the largest number of firms can meet and interconnect, as drivers of interconnection growth. Additionally, a recent Forresterstudy, "The Total Economic Impact (TEI)™ of Equinix Interconnection Solutions," outlined the financial benefits of direct interconnection.

"Results of our recent Enterprise of the Future survey, together with the experience we've gained working with our top global enterprise and service provider customers, indicate that we are on the precipice of a massive interconnection-led reinvention of enterprise IT. We believe an Interconnection Oriented Architecture is a valuable, repeatable strategy that will guide enterprises on their journey to becoming a truly interconnected enterprise, leveraging
Equinix'sdistinct interconnection and colocation capabilities." Jim Davis, analyst, 451 Research
"What we're seeing in our research is that as cloud usage takes off, data production grows exponentially, content pushes closer to the edge, and end users demand data and applications at all hours from all locations, the ability to connect with a wide variety of players becomes increasingly more important. The IOA strategy, as outlined by
Equinix, underscores this industry shift and is consistent with our projections for enterprise IT evolution."
