Enterprise cloud solutions provider, Unitas Global, and Equinix have announced a collaboration to deliver bundled hybrid cloud services to enterprise organizations. Through this offering, enterprises would gain turnkey access to a fully managed hybrid cloud service, eliminating the need to build and operate their own IT infrastructure.
Based on the Unitas multi-cloud orchestration system and available across all 150 Equinix data centers worldwide, the hybrid cloud solution combines Unitas Global‘s managed cloud design and deployment services together with Equinix colocation and interconnection solutions, including Performance Hub and Equinix Cloud Exchange.
The bundled solution would deliver unique service offerings that include space, power, network, compute, storage, cloud software, Equinix Cloud Exchange direct cloud connections, cross-connects, bandwidth, and management – all dedicated to a single client, offered at one monthly price, and managed by a single vendor. As part of the hybrid cloud solution, customers can also deploy an Equinix Performance Hub, giving them the ability to “efficiently” deploy IT and cloud resources at the edge, closest to their end-users, “thus increasing global network and application performance.”
Due to the unique needs of enterprise businesses, all hybrid cloud solutions are customizable with migration, network management, security, disaster recovery, and additional managed service solutions.

Through Equinix‘s interconnection platforms and vast provider network, Unitas Global can quickly turn-up customized hybrid cloud solutions and support global enterprises with solutions ranging from IT outsourcing, to cloud security and big data, to disaster recovery and access to our proprietary health monitoring platform, Unitas Atlas.”
Unitas Global is headquartered in Los Angeles, with clients and locations spanning the globe. Their custom delivered, highly secured and cloud-based IT environments would be “easy-to-consume, fully managed and backed by an end-to- end SLA, guaranteeing application uptime.”
