Internap, a global provider of IaaS cloud and other Internet infrastructure services, has joined the Equinix Channel Partner Program as well as the Equinix Cloud Exchange to expand its global reach and provide high-performance connectivity to its portfolio of cloud hosting services.
A long-term customer of Equinix, Internap will now be joining the Equinix Channel Partner Program as a Gold Reseller. As part of this arrangement, Internap will leverage Equinix’s global platform to help its enterprise clients quickly deploy multi-site IT solutions, build cloud infrastructure, and expand into new markets.
Internap will deliver its colocation and cloud solutions across Equinix’s 40 markets in 15 countries. And via the Equinix Cloud Exchange, Internap can offer its customers direct access to its cloud hosting services, enabling multi- and hybrid-cloud deployments.
As part of this partnership, Internap will be offering its China Performance IPTM solution via Equinix data centers in Hong Kong. China Performance IP leverages Internap’s patented Managed Internet Route OptimizerTM (MIRO) technology to identify the fastest route into China across multiple carriers. By offering this solution via Platform Equinix, Internap would be able to deliver latency improvements of 2-10X over traditional IP.
“Our 14-year relationship with Equinix has allowed us to continually offer expanded services, worldwide,” said Steve Orchard, SVP and GM of data center and network services, Internap. “By joining the Equinix Cloud Exchange and offering our China Performance IP via Platform Equinix in Asia, we continue to provide the highest performance solutions for our growing enterprise customer base, whether they are in Asia, or anywhere across the globe. And now, under the Equinix channel program, our relationship will continue to grow, providing cloud-based services to the market.”
