Le service AWS Direct Connect est désormais disponible à Equinix Munich

Extends AWS Direct Connect availability to fourteen metros globally with Equinix

REDWOOD CITY, Calif. and MUNICH, March 31, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Equinix, Inc. (Nasdaq: EQIX), the global interconnection and data center company, today announced the immediate availability of Amazon Web Services (AWS) Direct Connect cloud service in its Munich International Business Exchange (IBX®) data centers. With AWS Direct Connect, companies can connect their customer-owned and managed infrastructure directly to AWS, establishing a private connection to the cloud that can reduce costs, increase performance, and deliver a more consistent network experience. The Munich data center is Equinix's second location in Germany to offer AWS Direct Connect.  The company announced availability in Frankfurt in 2014.  Munich brings the total number of Equinix metros offering the Direct Connect service to 14, globally.

Cloud computing continues to grow at a steady pace across Europe. In fact, IDC predicts that the EMEA public cloud market will expand 26 percent over the next four years.  Germany remains the second-largest cloud-consuming territory, and it has the highest growth rate (23.8% CAGR) among the major territories.  According to IDC, basing on current trends, Germany could be the largest buyer of public cloud services by 2026*. Yet, one of the top CIO concerns in moving to the cloud continues to be compliance with German and European data protection laws. By expanding AWS Direct Connect within Germany, Equinix and Amazon are enabling enterprise CIOs to advance their hybrid cloud strategies by seamlessly and safely incorporating public cloud services into their existing architectures.
