Equinix, VMware and AWS are Re-Inventing Hybrid Cloud Infrastructures

Since last year’s AWS re:Invent conference, Equinix announced its collaboration with VMware and AWS to deliver private and secure hybrid cloud interconnection to VMware Cloud on AWS with Platform Equinix®. This joint solution enables our customers to establish multiple virtual private connections between on-premises vSphere environments and VMware Cloud on AWS using AWS Direct Connect and the Equinix Cloud Exchange Fabric™ (ECX Fabric™).

New AWS Routes Open Up in NAP

Equinix’s MI1 facility, one of the densest colocation sites in the southern United States, is right in the center of that hub, creating rich opportunities for companies in the southern North American, LATAM and Caribbean markets and earning its title as the Network Access Point of the Americas (NAP). Now, MI1 is offering access to Amazon Web Services (AWS) for new growth opportunities for North and South American businesses.

Where Opportunity Connects to AWS Proximity Matters

The digital edge is also where businesses are competing in an expanding global marketplace that is driving a growing digital global economy. For companies to gain value from and monetize all this digital growth, they require direct, secure and scalable Interconnection to people, locations, cloud and data. As the Global Interconnection Index predicts, clouds are the sweet spot when it comes to where companies are focusing their Interconnection growth.
