Equinix and VMware partner to boost hybrid cloud deployments
VMware supports Equinix as global colocation provider for VMware Cloud on Dell EMC
Equinix and VMware are teaming together to develop products to help enterprises accelerate hybrid cloud deployments based on VMware Cloud on Dell EMC within Equinix International Business Exchange (IBX) datacentres.
As a fully managed cloud service, VMware Cloud on Dell EMC combines public cloud simplicity, agility and economics with the security, control and performance of on-premises infrastructure. With the Equinix Cloud Exchange Fabric (ECX Fabric) interconnection service on Platform Equinix, enterprises can now take advantage of private and secure multicloud connectivity, and quickly deploy hybrid cloud infrastructures.
“The industry’s rapid adoption of hybrid cloud architectures for enterprise IT infrastructure is enabling higher levels of agility, security and availability than ever before. Equinix and VMware have been partners for several years, serving a majority of Global 2000 joint customers. Our newly expanded partnership will enable our mutual customers to gain the benefit of the Equinix enterprise capabilities and the world-class VMware Cloud on Dell EMC solution,” said Pat Gelsinger, CEO, VMware.
Through the expanded partnership, VMware will support Equinix as a global colocation provider for VMware Cloud on Dell EMC.
Equinix and VMware have been working together since 2013 to enable hybrid cloud infrastructures. This expanded collaboration is expected to further help customers simplify complex hybrid multicloud deployments.
