When Equinix introduced our Cloud Exchange this spring, we presented it as a breakthrough and “one of the most intelligent products we’ve ever launched.” Last week, a panel of industry experts offered validation of that early PR, as the Equinix Cloud Exchange won “Best Data Centre Innovation” at the Global Carrier Awards ceremony in Amsterdam.

The award was given by a diverse panel, including leading analysts, industry experts and senior members of the editorial team of Capacity magazine, which sponsored the Nov. 4 awards.

“We are so happy to have won the best data center innovation award at the Capacity awards,” said Harriet Wegloop, Account Executive, Networks, Equinix-Netherlands. “The aim of the Cloud Exchange was to help businesses address the most pressing issues with cloud and it’s great to be recognized for this achievement.”

The Cloud Exchange’s advanced technology enables Equinix customers to make on-demand, direct access to multiple cloud providers simultaneously. Businesses can combine different service offerings and build a cloud that fits their exact needs at a given moment. It’s superior, scalable interconnection, with higher throughput and more security than connecting to the cloud over the public Internet.

The list of participants has grown since we introduced the Cloud Exchange in April and includes Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure and Google Cloud Platform. It’s a deep roster, and it’s part of what makes Equinix the Home of the Interconnected Cloud.
