Equinix, Inc. (Nasdaq: EQIX), the global interconnection and data center

For today’s IT leaders, the challenge is to deliver more IT utility anytime,

offerings enable enterprises to improve application performance, reduce costs
and leverage cloud computing.

In this webinar attendees will learn about:

  *The latest Gartner research on colocation’s market size and its increasing
    value for today’s global enterprise
  *The critical role of colocation in an enterprise’s data center strategy
    and how it can be a stepping stone to the cloud
  *How to increase network and application flexibility, reliability, security
    and manageability, while reducing costs
  *How to deploy within 10 milliseconds of latency to 90 percent of North
    America, Europe and key markets in Asia-Pacific and Latin America for
    better end-user experience
  *Re-architecting the Enterprise WAN to better match capacity with
    application and end-user demand while reducing total cost of ownership
  *The benefits of directly connecting to a broad range of network and
    technology service providers

Additionally, Lillie will present an “Equinix on Equinix” case study –
exploring how the company transformed its own IT infrastructure by leveraging
the services available within Equinix’s data centers and thereby providing a
simple model for other enterprises to follow.


  *Brian Lillie, CIO, Equinix:
    “The world of IT is changing significantly, driven by social media, cloud,
    big data and mobile trends. These forces are increasing the strategic
    importance of the enterprise WAN and the growing need for a more flexible
    IT architecture. I’m excited to share some of the steps we’ve taken to
    achieve this type of environment for Equinix through some of the many
    services providers within Platform Equinix and our global footprint of IBX
