Global financial cloud infrastructure provider, Beeks Financial Cloud, has deployed on Equinix’s Cloud Exchange as it continues to expand its business globally. Beeks Financial Cloud leverages Cloud Exchange and Platform Equinix to connect its customers to global cloud services and networks via a secured, private and low-latency interconnection model.
By joining the Equinix Cloud Exchange, Beeks Financial Cloud gains access to instantly connect to multiple cloud service providers (CSPs) in 21 markets, building a “more secured application environment and reduce the total cost of private network connectivity to CSPs for its customers.”
Beeks Financial Cloud, a UK-based company, first deployed in an Equinix London data center four years ago on one server rack. Now, the company has approximately 80 interconnections within Equinix across eight data centers situated in financial business hubs around the world. These direct connections would provide increased performance and security between Beeks and its customers and partners across its digital supply chain.
“Beeks Financial Cloud has continued to grow rapidly on Equinix’s interconnection platform, with Hong Kong being our eighth addition,” said Gordon McArthur, CEO of Beeks Financial Cloud. “Data centers underpin our business and we are confident that Equinix’s Cloud Exchange will enable the speed, resilience and reduced latency our customers have come to expect from our company. Equinix’s global footprint of interconnected data centers has allowed our business to really thrive.”
Equinix’s global data centers are home to 1,000+ financial services companies. Equinix‘s Cloud Exchange offers these companies software-defined direct connections to multiple CSPs including Amazon Web Services (AWS Cloud), Google Cloud Platform, Microsoft Azure ExpressRoute and Office 365, IBM Softlayer, Oracle Cloud and others. This has allowed Beeks to scale up rapidly while securely connecting to multiple cloud providers.
