Equinix has expanded its Network Edge services – already available in the UK – in five new European markets comprising France, Finland, Ireland, Italy and Sweden.
Already deployed in the UK, Netherlands, Germany and Spain, Network Edge enables any company to establish a presence where they don’t have an existing footprint, as well as process data closer to the user without the need for a physical deployment in a data centre. By adding Network Edge to five key markets Equinix enables businesses that want to deploy or expand their services in these countries to interconnect to businesses throughout Europe without excessive expenditure on hardware.
Network Edge is a gateway to the full potential of Platform Equinix for companies using the service. In this way, any company that wants to establish a presence virtually will be able to do so by deploying network function virtualisation (NFV) from multiple vendors, connecting their digital supply chains at Equinix, while scaling their IT and network infrastructure within minutes.
“By expanding the reach of Network Edge into these new markets, we are allowing businesses to establish themselves in more metros without the need to physically deploy hardware in a data centre,” said Russell Poole, Managing Director for the UK at Equinix. “Through unrivalled access to new markets, UK enterprises can unlock new revenue streams and compete in some of the world’s most digitally advanced and important business hubs.”Click below to share this article
