Many companies and government organisations want to take advantage of the cloud's scalable, on-demand computing capabilities, but they're held back by data security, regulatory or audit requirements that compel them to keep some information on storage systems that they operate or oversee themselves. Yet direct oversight and granular data management are nearly impossible with most cloud-based storage services.
Equinix is committed to operating facilities that meet the rigorous standards and compliance needs of global businesses. We work with several regulatory and standards organisations to ensure compliance – from the data centre operations to sustainability and environmental regulations.
Placing your private storage resources within global Equinix IBX® data centres enables you to meet these requirements and leverage the performance and scalability benefits of securely connecting private storage to public compute and application resources. Direct connections between private storage resources within an Equinix IBX data centre and public cloud compute resources, lower latency and increased performance.
Inside Equinix data centres, you can preserve control over enterprise information and still use cloud services such as NetApp or EMC. By establishing secure access between private storage systems and public clouds housed within Equinix data centres, your storage and compute resources function as though they're on the same server rack – with very low latency, high reliability and security.
Enterprises are increasingly choosing hybrid cloud architecture in order to maximise the performance of mission-critical applications.
Foursquare doubles database performance and scales for rapid feature and capacity increase – all while keeping costs flat – by migrating from an AWS-only technology platform to a hybrid cloud in Equinix.
Badgeville evolved from operating exclusively within the public cloud to deploying a hybrid cloud model within data centres. As a result, Badgeville was able to gain control of its own infrastructure and derive significant business benefits, including performance increases of up to 40 percent,...
