Equinix partners with Datapipe to support AWS

Equinix has partnered with Datapipe to provide managed hybrid IT solutions for Amazon Web Services (AWS).

The solution will combine Equinix’s global footprint of over 100 data centres and its Cloud Exchange interconnection solution with Datapipe’s managed services and AWS platform.

It is said to offer enterprise customers greater security, control and choice over how they manage enterprise applications and workloads in the AWS cloud.

"Our collaboration with Datapipe on a managed hybrid cloud solution for AWS removes many of the common barriers to cloud adoption. It offers customers the best of both worlds by providing Equinix's secure data centre platform, including private access to AWS, along with Datapipe's expertise in designing and managing an optimal IT architecture for enterprises,” said Chris Sharp, VP of cloud innovation at Equinix.
