Global interconnection and data centre provider Equinix is extending access to Alibaba Cloud through its platform for customers from 17 metros globally, including Sydney.

According to Equinix, the expansion, along with its API integration with ECX Fabric, will help enterprises from global markets “easily and privately connect” to Alibaba Cloud on Platform Equinix.

Guy Danskine, Managing Director, Equinix Australia, said “Offering our customers in Australia and across the world direct access to cloud service providers with high-speed, low-latency connections is essential for them to continue their growth in the digital world, which continues to accelerate at pace”.

“With that, we’re delighted to strengthen our partnership with Alibaba Cloud with its deployment in Sydney. Cloud infrastructure is an integral part of enterprises operating at scale and the extended reach of Alibaba Cloud will be hugely beneficial to our customers and support them on their digital transformation journeys.”

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.

“We are happy that we share the common goal with Alibaba Could to help enterprises locate services, interconnect to them and build valuable relationships with their business partners. With this extended reach, we will continue to partner with Alibaba Cloud and support more enterprises to accelerate their digital journey across the globe.”

Shunmin Zhu, Principal Engineer of Infrastructural Products, Alibaba Cloud Intelligence, said: "Equinix’s global platform and ever-expanding footprint has made it easy for Alibaba Cloud to grow into new markets and offer our customers access to a rich ecosystem of cloud service providers via Platform Equinix and Equinix Cloud Exchange Fabric”.
