Equinix connects businesses with partners and customers around the world through a global platform of high performance data centers, containing dynamic ecosystems and the broadest choice of networks. Platform Equinix connects more than 4,000 enterprises, cloud, digital content and financial companies including more than 680 network service providers to help them grow their businesses, improve application performance and protect their vital digital assets.
Corporate IT organizations will be able to leverage RightScale and Platform Equinix to seamlessly manage workloads among private clouds and various public cloud providers. This allows global enterprises to access an unprecedented choice of cloud services in real-time through the RightScale management platform, ensuring high availability, business continuity and disaster recovery without compromising data security, compliance or risk mitigation. Now IT teams can leverage the powerful combination of their own corporate private cloud with a direct high-speed connection to public clouds already in an Equinix facility managed through a single dashboard with RightScale. This new cloud package provides customers with true workload deployment freedom by connecting their private cloud infrastructure directly to joint Equinix and RightScale public cloud partners such as Amazon Web Services (AWS), Rackspace, SoftLayer, Logicworks and Datapipe.
In addition, service providers who have invested in deploying assets in Platform Equinix to establish their cloud offerings will have the opportunity to partner with RightScale to enhance their services and participate in building out a network of clouds enabled by Platform Equinix. Service providers can offer their customers a state-of-the-art management platform that will allow them to deploy workloads on demand to various clouds based on their requirements, ensuring optimal end-user performance, minimizing delivery costs and accelerated time-to-market for new services.
