Equinix Marketplace recognized for custom-built technology that helps customers expand services faster, with greater agility
Equinixwon the distinction specifically for its EquinixMarketplace offering, an easy-to-use global portal that allows Equinixcustomers to connect with each other and find the services they need to grow their businesses. When developing the solution, the company realized that having a framework that ties behavior analytics, performance monitoring and auditing data together in an interconnected system would be critical to its success. Seeing a lack of comprehensive tools or products that meet these key requirements, Equinixbuilt its own patent-pending technology to power EquinixMarketplace.
The success of Equinix Marketplace and its benefits to service
providers and buyers will only increase as more companies join the
various business ecosystems inside Equinix Internet Business Exchange (IBX®)
data centers. The company has more than 4,000 Platform
Equinix™ customers and partners which businesses can leverage to accelerate growth.
