Connect with Equinix in Sydney

Did you know that just 14 percent of executives say their technology overhauls have led to sustained performance improvements?

Digital transformation is a journey. While you can’t do everything at once, it helps to establish a foundation that supports the strategic direction you decide to take.

Without this foundation, digital investments can become distractions. Complexity, cost, latency and security issues emerge to scupper success. You end up with a twisted mass of things, rather than an interconnected network of possibilities.

Equinix Sydney is Australia’s most interconnected data centre campus with direct links to submarine cable landing stations for global connectivity.
