Hybrid cloud connectivity company Cloud Gateway has announced its partnership with Equinix, to create a new cloud connectivity platform with the aim of promoting a multicloud strategy for enterprises to follow.
The partnership will combine Cloud Gateway’s hybrid
connectivity PaaS, with Equinix’s Cloud Exchange (ECX) Fabric’s ecosystem of
1,800 network and 2,900 cloud and IT service providers.
Cloud Gateway have said that this will provide businesses
with ‘one streamlined and secure platform to quickly deploy hybrid digital
infrastructure anywhere in the world’.
“Organisations are increasingly embracing multi and hybrid
cloud strategies and taking them seriously, rather than seeing it as something
to aspire to,” said Justin Day, CEO of Cloud Gateway.
“Partnering with Equinix will allow us to offer customers our rapid, flexible and secure cloud connectivity platform, backed by Equinix’s extensive physical infrastructure.
“This will ultimately help businesses reach the market
faster and help them maximise their competitive advantage.”
Cloud Gateway added that upon their analysis, they made the
discovery that businesses face four main challenges when creating digital
infrastructure, thus the partnership of Cloud Gateway and Equinix’s
technologies will establish a vendor agnostic platform that will enable
businesses to address challenges.
