As one of four inaugural sponsors of Google Cloud Next five years ago, it’s worth reflecting on how far Equinix and Google have come in that time and the opportunities our work together represents for our joint customers and partners.
Equinix is excited to be a sponsor of Google Cloud Next '19, taking place April 9 - 11 at the Moscone Convention Center in beautiful San Francisco, California. You can find us on the show floor at booth #1449 where we'll have product demos and great giveaways going on daily.
