Today PacketExchange announced the news that its Network-Infrastructure-as-a-Service (NIaaS) is now available within nine Equinix data centers across three continents, following its expansion into two Equinix European facilities in Amsterdam (AM1/2) and London (LD4/5). NIaaS is now accessible by Equinix customers across nine locations including Amsterdam, London, New York, Chicago, Los Angeles, San Jose, Dallas, Ashburn, and Singapore. With the expansion, Equinix customers are granted access to PacketExchange’s global network that offers point-to-point and point-to-multipoint solutions across its globally extensive private Ethernet and Internet network. And, specifically via Equinix’s facilities in Amsterdam and London, the NIaaS is further available to a variety of business eco-systems such as Network Service Professionals, Cloud and IT companies, Content and Digital Media, Financial Services, and Enterprise businesses around the world.
So, what exactly does NIaaS do? It provides enterprise organizations the ability to obtain network infrastructure as a fully managed service instead of having to maintain expensive hardware assets, engineering resources, and fixed capacity WAN circuits.
The flexibility of Ethernet allows companies to quickly scale capacity as needed, and by building their network infrastructure on the PacketExchange private optical backbone, companies are provided with reliable, secure access to cloud-hosted applications.
“PacketExchange has built a globally robust network that leverages the strength of private and public networks solutions in order to provide a custom data delivery experience for businesses that rely on the cloud,” comments Rick Mace, CEO of PacketExchange. “PacketExchange not only provides a reliable and robust infrastructure that optimizes the delivery of cloud-based solutions, but we stand by this service by offering 100% SLA guarantees across our core network.”
“We are pleased to welcome PacketExchange into our Amsterdam and London data centers,” said Eric Schwartz, President, Equinix Europe. “Our global platform gives network operators the ability to offer services in more markets and our diverse customer base now has access to PacketExchange’s fully managed, global network.”
The PacketExchange Network Infrastructure-as-a-Service solution is used by leading Software-as-as-Services (SaaS) providers and enterprises globally. To find out more about PacketExchange’s global Ethernet network delivery solutions visit www.packetexchange.net or email [email protected].
