E-commerce is a dynamic business with peaks and lows in seasonal shopping and during advertising campaign cycles. The cloud is a natural and cost-effective fit for the volatility of e-commerce. You only provision and pay for resources as you need them instead of over-building your IT infrastructure in anticipation of high selling times.


Scale your e-commerce business into the cloud.

Equinix is the home of the interconnected cloud. Our Platform Equinix™ data centres and Equinix Cloud Exchange™ allow you to bypass the Internet and rapidly deploy and scale cloud computing services – including migrating your e-commerce infrastructure to a hybrid cloud – on demand. Direct, easy access to cloud services allows you to scale your e-commerce capabilities during spikes in customer buying.

  • Build a gateway to access cloud services, such as payment engines and additional system or storage resources, to meet spikes in demand.
  • Access 2,500+ public cloud services, including enabling direct connections to AWS and Microsoft Azure within the same data centre.
  • Simplify managing connections to multiple cloud services with automated cloud connection provisioning.
