REDWOOD CITY, Calif. — Equinix, Inc., the global interconnection and data center company, today announced the Equinix Performance Hub, a new solution that uniquely combines elements of data centers, networking infrastructure and connectivity, and cloud computing access to improve application performance and deliver a globally consistent quality of experience to end users.

The Performance Hub serves as an extension of the private enterprise network into an Equinix International Business Exchange (IBX)data center, enabling enterprises to securely and reliably connect to network and cloud service providers using their own infrastructure or off-the-shelf equipment supplied as part of a bundled offer. Global enterprises such as Chevron, eBay, and Nvidia have already elected to deploy Performance Hub architectures in Equinix data centers around the world.

Global cloud traffic is forecast to grow 4.5 times between now and 2017, to 7.7 zettabytes a year, according to Cisco Systems. The combined forces of globalization and the reliance on collaborative, business-critical applications are causing significant demand on enterprise networks and IT architectures. As a result, these businesses need a robust, secure and distributed network to meet the performance needs of a dispersed user base.

Equinix developed the Performance Hub to address the needs of enterprises struggling to maintain the highest level of network performance and quality of service for global users. Performance Hub deployments include:

  • Equinix IBX data center hosting ̶ Cabinets, power, and cross connects
  • Network connectivity ̶ Metro-Ethernet, long-haul (MPLS-VPN), ISP
  • Network equipment ̶ Routing, switching, firewalls, SSL-VPN, load-balancers, WAN-acceleration
  • Cloud connectivity ̶ Private, high-bandwidth connectivity to leading public clouds such as Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Windows Azure and many others.

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
