Beeks are pleased to announce that our cloud services are now available to be purchased via the Equinix Cloud Exchange™ Fabric, Equinix’s global interconnection platform for buying and selling cloud services.
As a company, we’ve been in close collaboration with Equinix since 2011, utilising Platform Equinix™ to provide low latency environments for our financial markets clients.
This move will serve as a new sales channel for Beeks, allowing existing and new customers to directly purchase and connect to our products and services via Equinix Cloud Exchange Fabric, meaning that our service will be even more widely available to financial markets clients looking for Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) providers. Through Equinix Cloud Exchange Fabric, we will have the ability to easily extend our reach to a rapidly expanding global base of customers via private connections that provide a more consistent user experience. Additionally, the software-defined networking (SDN) capabilities of ECX Fabric enables us to dynamically connect to our own infrastructure across Equinix locations or to connect to any other customer on the Equinix global platform, regardless of location.
Russell Poole, MD, Equinix UK, stated: “Equinix provides a global platform for digital business by connecting customers physically and virtually around the world, enabling companies like Beeks to securely deploy, directly connect, and effectively scale its digital infrastructure globally. By leveraging Equinix Cloud Exchange Fabric, enterprises will now be able to directly interconnect with Beeks in a secure, low latency, high performance environment.”
Available in 48 metros globally, Platform Equinix provides virtualised, private and direct connections to the world’s largest clouds, such as Amazon Web Services and Microsoft Azure.
“As a global leader in the provision of cloud infrastructure for automated trading, the ability for our customers to quickly and securely connect to our services is a key element of our growth strategy,” commented Gordon McArthur, Beeks’ CEO.
“We are delighted to now be able to add Equinix Cloud Exchange Fabric as an automated means by which customers can access our services.”
