Today we are very excited to announce that Carpathia and Equinix are coming together to deliver complex and compliant solutions to our collective customers. Although Equinix and Carpathia have shared a close relationship for the past 7 years including over 200 customers, today we are bringing this relationship together in a more formal way to jointly sell, market and deliver these solutions to our customers - a first for our industry.
The combined stats of our two companies operational capabilities are world class; Equinix with > 6Million sq ft of data center space in 11 counties covering 35 strategic markets; Carpathia delivering > 680Gb/s of sustained network capacity, and over 35 petabytes of cloud storage supporting hundreds of the most demanding government and enterprise IT solutions.
These solutions bring together both company’s services portfolios to solve some really tough IT problems.
Where this really gets exciting is these three service groups are fully integrated. So for example if you’re an existing Equinix customer who also requires some on-demand cloud resources, it’s as simple as cross-connecting within the data center to the Carpathia cloud cell. Carpathia supports low latency, layer2 connections directly into our cloud networking fabric from the customer’s existing Equinix rack or cage. This allows the customer to use their IP address space and simply extend networks to the cloud avoiding the extra headaches and latency typically associated with cloud bridging solutions (not to mention avoiding internet bandwidth costs!)
So if you are a customer that has some form of compliance requirement - be it FISMA, DIACAP, HIPAA, PCI, etc. which would most likely be defined as “complex hosting requirements” - then the Equinix/Carpathia alliance can help you meet those needs. Or, if you are an existing Equinix customer and you are interested in adding these services, please be sure to contact us.
