One of the biggest companies in the meeting solutions and unified communications, Zoom has played an important role in shifting the communications culture. Now, Zoom is partnering up with data center provider Equinix who will securely deploy, connect and scale the company’s digital infrastructure. Today, some parts of Zoom’s digital infrastructure are already residing within Equinix International Business Exchange (IBX) data centers, such as Amsterdam, Frankfurt, Hong Kong, Melbourne, New York, Tokyo, Toronto, Silicon Valley, and Sidney.
Consistency, scalability, and security
Equinix will also directly connect with key business verticals, specifically the financial services and government sectors. At the same time, Equinix will be connecting to the wide range of network service providers and Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) digital business partners operating within the global ecosystem of companies.
Equinix CIO Milind Wagle said:
“As digital continues to transform the world, we are witnessing a new era of really innovative companies being built on the cloud. As a video- first, cloud-native company, Zoom has disrupted the industry, revolutionizing the way people interact and collaborate across geographies. At Equinix, Zoom has transformed our collaboration experience for our entire global workforce. We share Zoom’s deep-rooted value to put the customer at the center of everything we do and are committed to supporting Zoom’s long-term vision for growth.”
