REDWOOD CITY, Calif., April 18, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Equinix, Inc. (Nasdaq: EQIX), the global interconnection and data center company, today announced that it has become an Advanced Technology Partner in the AWS Partner Network (APN).  The Advanced designation is the highest level an APN Technology Partner can achieve, and it underscores Equinix's ongoing commitment to serving AWS customers by providing direct and secure access inside its global footprint of International Business Exchange (IBX®) data centers.  Equinix first began offering AWS Direct Connect in 2011, and has since witnessed substantial growth in connections to the cloud.  In fact, since the beginning of 2016, customer connections to AWS via the Equinix Cloud Exchange have grown by more than 250%.

Enterprises are increasingly incorporating cloud-based solutions as part of their overall IT infrastructure.  In fact, a recent IDC cloud survey, CloudView 2016, shows that 58% of all organizations surveyed are embracing cloud, using public or private cloud for more than one or two small applications or workloads, up from 24% from 14 months ago.* By providing direct access to AWS cloud inside Equinix data centers, Equinix helps its enterprise customers advance their cloud strategies and capitalize on these cloud benefits by seamlessly incorporating cloud services into their existing architectures.
