REDWOOD CITY, Calif. & LONDON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May. 29, 2013--
Inc. (NASDAQ: EQIX),
the global interconnection
and data center company, today announced NextiraOne has selected
Equinix’s LD5 International Business Exchange™ (IBX®) as the primary
data center to support the roll-out of its new modular private cloud
Highlights / Key Facts
NextiraOne’s latest cloud offering ― FlexSuite ― uses FlexPod, a
private cloud infrastructure designed to enhance hardware utilization
from 15 to 85 percent, allowing superior high-speed scalability. The
cloud solution is designed for unified enterprise and cloud software
applications, as well as internal and external IT-based services.
NextiraOne is extending its partnership with Equinix because of the
network-rich environment and dense ecosystem of enterprise and cloud
providers it will have access to in LD5.
With NextiraOne’s presence, Equinix customers can benefit from access
to improved hardware utilization and provide scalable cloud services.
NextiraOne also aims to replicate the data center partner model across
new markets, meaning Equinix’s EMEA customers can also gain access to
this new cloud model and its many benefits.
According to IDC,
IT organizations are viewing converged systems as a method to simplify
management and increase time to value. FlexSuite addresses this market
demand by enabling power consumption, capacity and usage, to be flexed
up or down according to business requirements. Furthermore, the
modular cloud service brings network, computer and storage functions
together in a single cabinet, improving efficiency.
Equinix’s ecosystems include more than 800 financial services
businesses, over 450 content and digital media businesses and more
than 950 cloud service providers, as well as a wide range of
enterprises and over 900 network service providers.
Davies, head of business development, Data Centers,
“The past twelve months have seen a
significant increase in the number of businesses consolidating IT
legacy systems, which have proven costly to update and slowed
commercial growth. By locating in Equinix, we will not only be able to
deliver our services to customers but also have direct access to a
prospective client base of cloud driven customers and partners through
Equinix Marketplace portal.
Poole, managing director, Equinix UK, said:
businesses look to consolidate and simplify IT systems, more and more
will turn to the cloud a as a cost-effective way to do this.
NextiraOne provides businesses with the knowledge and expertise to
ensure that they not only implement the right cloud strategy, but also
help them to navigate the common pitfalls associated with a poor
implementation that can result in spiraling costs.”
