REDWOOD CITY, Calif., -- Equinix, Inc., the global interconnection and data center company, today announced that GoGrid, provider of cloud and Open Data Services featuring purpose-built infrastructure for Big Data, has joined the Equinix Cloud Exchange. Designed to accelerate cloud adoption and optimize performance, the Equinix Cloud Exchange is an advanced interconnection solution that enables seamless, on-demand and direct access to multiple clouds and multiple networks across the globe. Cloud service providers, such as GoGrid, are using the Equinix Cloud Exchange to expand market reach and offer private connectivity to enterprise customers globally through a single interconnection solution.

"As a company that specializes in cloud infrastructure and Open Data Services, we understand the many intricacies that are incorporated into developing successful cloud strategies. The Equinix Cloud Exchange simplifies the process of establishing hybrid cloud deployments by connecting enterprises and services providers -- delivering the many benefits associated with cloud environments and private access," said Mark Worsey, chief operating officer at GoGrid. "Expanding our relationship with Equinix enables our customers to use our cloud and Big Data solutions in a more secure, predictable, and high-performance manner via the combination of our Cloud Bridge option plugged into the Equinix Cloud Exchange."

As a provider of Big Data solutions, GoGrid turned to the Equinix Cloud Exchange for optimized performance. Transferring and analyzing massive amounts of data securely and quickly is critical and becoming more routine for many companies. The challenge is to do so efficiently and cost-effectively. By providing a secure, dedicated network connection over the Equinix Cloud Exchange, rather than the public internet, enterprises receive improved performance in the form of data throughput at reduced costs.

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.
