Equinix Optimizes With Silver Peak
SANTA CLARA, Calif. -- Silver Peak today announced it is partnering with Equinix, Inc. (Nasdaq: EQIX), the global interconnection and data center company, to optimize enterprise data center connectivity as part of the Equinix Performance Hub solution. The Performance Hub combines Silver Peak’s industry-leading WAN optimization with other data center, networking and cloud computing elements to improve application performance and the quality of experience when extending the enterprise to a hybrid cloud environment.
The Performance Hub enables enterprises to securely and reliably connect to their choice of 975 networks and 450 cloud service providers located inside Equinix data centers. With the addition of Silver Peak WAN optimization, enterprises can consolidate cloud connections at an Equinix Performance Hub to dramatically reduce response times for business-critical applications. This enables enterprises to benefit from more reliable, accelerated access to software-as-a-service (SaaS) applications like Office365, Salesforce.com and Google Docs. Global enterprises such as Chevron, eBay and Nvidia have already elected to deploy Equinix Performance Hub architectures around the world.
“The more enterprises move to a hybrid cloud architecture, the more we hear about the strain on network performance and how to provide a consistent quality of experience to a distributed workforce,” said Ihab Tarazi, CTO of Equinix. “The Equinix Performance Hub combines Silver Peak WAN optimization and the convenience of cloud access to bring users closer to business-critical data and cloud resources from anywhere in the world.”
