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.

How Direct Access to Amazon Web Services is Accelerating Digital Transformation

All these innovations make France a destination of choice for digital businesses that want to establish themselves in a vendor-neutral colocation data center facility at the digital edge, regardless of industry. Digital businesses need a vendor-agnostic, multi-tenant data center provider that delivers world-class interconnection solutions, which open-up access to state-of the-art French digital infrastructure, global business ecosystems, personal and data security controls, and renewable energy resources.

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.
