International Telecoms Week 2013

Business Wire

REDWOOD CITY, Calif. -- May 07, 2013

Equinix, Inc. (Nasdaq: EQIX), the global interconnection and data center
company, today announced the company will present at International Telecoms
Week (ITW) 2013, being held May 13-15, 2013, in Chicago, IL.

Equinix’s global general manager of Networks & Mobility, Jim Poole, will be
participating in a cloud desktop-as-a-service (DaaS) panel presentation,
titled “Moving End User Computing to the Cloud to Accelerate Cloud-Based
Revenues,” on Tuesday, May 14 at 9 a.m. CDT. Presented in partnership with
NetApp, Desktone and Cisco, the session will focus on the emerging DaaS
opportunity, which enables the delivery of virtual desktops from the public
cloud via service providers.

IDC predicts that the hosted virtual desktop market will have an 85 percent
compound annual growth rate over the next five years. Cloud workloads at
multi-tenant data centers (MTDC) are growing at three times the rate of
traditional data centers, while telecommunications services consumed by cloud
companies grew 41 percent in the last two years.By following the migration to
MTDCs and aligning with the right partners to build a differentiated solution,
network service providers are in the perfect position to grow revenue by
expanding their highest-margin services faster than previously possible.

Topics to be discussed in the ITW panel session include:

  *The service bundle, what it entails and why it’s considered “revenues in a
    box”
  *Key benefits of DaaS, such as low latency, strong security, accelerated
    time to market and location flexibility
  *3^rd party validation

An abbreviated version of the panel presentation is available here. If you are
