Global financial cloud infrastructure provider Beeks Financial Cloud has deployed Equinix's Cloud Exchange as it continues to expand its business globally, the data centre company said in a press statement on 12 January 2017.
Beeks Financial Cloud leverages Cloud Exchange and Platform Equinix to connect its customers to global cloud services and networks via a secure, private and low-latency interconnection model.
The deployment provides the necessary digital infrastructure and access to a mature financial services business ecosystem to connect with major financial services providers in key markets around the globe via the cloud.
Equinix's Cloud Exchange offers software-defined direct connections to multiple cloud service providers (CSPs) including Amazon Web Services (AWS), Google Cloud Platform, Microsoft Azure ExpressRoute and Office 365 and Oracle Cloud. This has allowed Beeks to scale up rapidly while securely connecting to multiple cloud providers.
This has allowed Equinix to build a more secure application environment, and reduce the total cost of private network connectivity to CSPs for its customers.
"We see the global demand for data centre colocation being largely driven by cloud adoption," said James Eibisch, Research Director, EMEA Telecoms and Networking, IDC. "That coupled with the expanded reach of Equinix's global interconnection platform is a compelling offering for businesses such as Beeks that require connectivity and access to new markets to meet business demands."
