Hybrid cloud connectivity platform-as-a-service (PaaS) operator, Cloud Gateway has announced a partnership with Equinix to create a cloud connectivity system that lets business embrace a complete multi-cloud strategy.
The partnership will combine Cloud Gateway’s hybrid connectivity PaaS, with Equinix’s Cloud Exchange (ECX) Fabric’s rich, extensive ecosystem of 1,800 network and 2,900 cloud and IT service providers. This will provide businesses with one streamlined and secure platform to quickly deploy hybrid digital infrastructure anywhere in the world.
Currently, businesses face four main challenges when creating digital infrastructure: understanding digital transformation, mitigating risk and securing access, avoiding vendor lock-in and time to market.
The partnership of Cloud Gateway and Equinix’s technologies will establish a vendor agnostic platform that will enable businesses to address these challenges and securely reach everywhere, interconnect with everyone and integrate everything in order to reach their market faster.
“Organisations are increasingly embracing multi and hybrid cloud strategies and taking them seriously, rather than seeing it as something to aspire to,” said Justin Day, CEO of Cloud Gateway. “Partnering with Equinix will allow us to offer customers our rapid, flexible and secure cloud connectivity platform, backed by Equinix’s extensive physical infrastructure. This will ultimately help businesses reach the market faster and help them maximise their competitive advantage.”
Oren Yehudai, senior director of channel partnerships EMEA, Equinix said: “One of our key priorities is to expand Equinix’s go-to-market engine, investing behind the significant momentum we have helping customers implement hybrid and multicloud as their architecture of choice. Partnering with companies like Cloud Gateway enhancing our ecosystems and gives customers more cloud opportunities along their IT transformation journey.”
