Equinix says that with the partnership, Alibaba Cloud can also “enjoy secure, direct access to a robust, interconnected ecosystem of more than 9,700 customers, including 1,800 network providers and over 2,900 cloud and IT service providers globally to enhance performance, lower latency, and increase reliability for its customers”.

"We are glad to deepen our collaboration with Alibaba Cloud in new metros around the world. In today’s digital economy, delivering cloud computing has become a top priority for enterprises,” said Royce Thomas, Senior Vice President, Global Account Management, Equinix.

“As such, direct access to cloud service providers, like Alibaba Cloud, via high-speed, low-latency connections is helping enterprises gain a competitive advantage and fully realise the benefits of the cloud.
