In 2022, news about supply chain constraints and geopolitical and economic instability dominated the headlines. Yet, that didn’t deter our Equinix global and regional partners from helping our shared customers accelerate their digital-first strategies. Today, we recognize our partners’ commitment to excellence with our 2022 Equinix Partner Awards.
The Equinix partner ecosystem includes a broad range of technology, network and cloud service providers, managed service providers, systems integrators and value-added resellers committed to helping businesses establish and extend their digital presence. At the center of the partner ecosystem is Platform Equinix®, with its vendor-neutral digital infrastructure that helps our customers reach prospective partners worldwide. This year’s Equinix Partner Awards recognize those partners who delivered expertise that was instrumental in advancing our customers’ digital-first strategies.
Award categories reflect breadth of partnership expertise
This year’s Equinix Partner Awards recognize partners who most materially helped Equinix customers advance their digital transformation journeys. Partners continued to raise the bar in their unique packaging of products and services, so we expanded the scope of the award categories to ensure broader recognition of partner excellence. We proudly announce the Global and Regional Equinix Partner Award winners across the Americas, Asia-Pacific, and Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA) for 2022.

Your continuous collaboration and innovation make it possible for enterprise customers to focus on what they do best and rely on industry partners for the technologies and services that help accelerate their digital transformation.
