Equinix, Inc., the global interconnection and data center company, today announced it has established Solution Validation Centers in eight key markets around the world. The Solution Validation Center provides a demonstration and proof-of-concept testing environment that enables prospective and existing Equinix customers to assess and measure the performance of application platforms and new deployments from secure, highly connected and globally distributed International Business Exchange™ (IBX®) data center locations.

Highlights / Key Facts

Solution Validation Center engagements are managed by Equinix global solutions architects, a team of technology experts who take a consultative approach to address customers' technology challenges, and recommend customized, reliable solutions, such as how to bridge network, data center and cloud infrastructures to accelerate business performance. With technical certifications and extensive hands-on experience, Equinix's team of more than 20 solutions architects is located in key markets around the globe to help prospective and existing customers solve their data center challenges.

More than 25 engagements have been tested and validated inside Equinix Solution Validation Centers to date.

Equinix customers and technology partners including BlueBox, Box, Cloud Scaling, Desktone, McGraw-Hill, NetApp and Redapt have leveraged the Solution Validation Center to test and validate a wide range of deployments including:

• Private, public and hybrid cloud architectures using AWS;
