A Multi Cloud Future



Video: Equinix Cloud Exchange allows enterprises to do more in the cloud by providing secure, direct, flexible connections to a wide range of cloud service providers.

DIRECT CONNECTIONS YIELD CRITICAL BENEFITS

By directly connecting to cloud service providers inside colocation facilities companies can bypass the public Internet, thereby solving a whole host of issues that made cloud-based solutions less attractive in the past.

Throughput and security are greatly improved as direct private cross-connections inside the data center are physically separated from the public Internet. Improved power, network redundancy, and on-premise security inside premium colocation facilities are typically far better than what's found in private corporate facilities.  Finally, the presence of a wide variety of network, cloud and other service providers present inside colocation hubs also gives companies the ability to quickly adapt, add new services and leverage competition among providers to optimize cost structures.
