Public Cloud Connectivity

Overview

Since your data doesn't traverse the Internet, it isn't subject to the unpredictable traffic congestion, transmission lag times and data exposure risks inherent in public networks. 70+ cloud service providers are available within Equinix, and many of them offer private interconnection to their cloud infrastructure via Equinix Cloud Exchange™, cross connects or Ethernet services.

Direct Connection Services

Our direct connection services set up private links between your data center infrastructure in Equinix and potentially hundreds of information and communications technology (ICT) service providers. The private link provides fast, secure and reliable connectivity for transmitting latency-sensitive and high-bandwidth data traffic.
