Today’s digital economy is an “as-a-service” world, where individuals and businesses have a plethora of choices in goods and services at their fingertips from multiple cloud service providers (CSPs).
Hybrid cloud has long been lauded as the fastest path to cloud adoption for the enterprise. In its 2017 State of the Cloud survey Microsoft reports that 75% of enterprise and mid-market companies prefer hybrid cloud deployments.
Healthcare is full of uncertainties, but an optimized IT infrastructure based on an IOA strategy built on Platform Equinix can help industry organizations ensure that superior, secure, cost-effective connectivity isn’t one of them.
As the enterprise increasingly adopts cloud, more business-critical applications are moving into cloud environments, and high network performance needs to move there with them – service quality can’t be guaranteed without it. But how can companies ensure they can deliver it?
Microsoft is developing a well-rounded approach to giving its customers the intelligence they require to best manage and control Microsoft Azure and Office365 hybrid cloud platforms.
Equinix customers leveraged an “interconnection-first” strategy, based on an Interconnection Oriented Architecture™ (IOA™), helped them achieve transformative digital business benefits and put three important takeaways into action.

IT organizations can harness expert professional services and cloud deployment expertise under “one roof.” And they can access vendor-neutral cloud and network ecosystems that will help expedite cloud adoption while lowering risks and costs.
Many of the M&E companies we work with recognize that they need to transform their IT infrastructures and to make that happen, they need fast and secure access to the cloud. When they ask us how it can be done, we demonstrate how leveraging an Interconnection Oriented Architecture (IOA™) deployed on Platform Equinix™ can give them a safe, simple on-ramp to a wealth of cloud services and access to a rich ecosystem of M&E partners.
Today, we’re announcing new training and certification programs that will help our partners better educate their sales and technical staff on Equinix products and solutions and the unique value we can jointly bring to businesses worldwide. This means our partners will be more prepared to offer enterprise customers the best solutions to meet their evolving needs and accelerate their adoption of next-generation cloud, network and IT services. These solutions will be particularly attractive to enterprises as they look to become increasingly interconnected by embracing Interconnection Oriented Architectures (IOA™) to transform network efficiency, user experience, and cloud scalability.
