Equinix is expanding interconnection services in EMEA, designed to simplify hybrid and multicloud connectivity.
Equinix Cloud Exchange Fabric (ECX Fabric) is available in Barcelona, Brussels, Geneva, Istanbul, Lisbon and Sofia. It will be available in Hamburg later this quarter. Enterprises and service providers can interconnect to a community of clouds, networks, partners and customers.

“Most of the organizations we work with around the world are already on a digital transformation journey. And they are using the cloud to improve their global reach and seamlessly connect with the customers, partners and suppliers that matter to them,” said Eugene Bergen Henegouwen, Equinix’s EMEA president.
Equinix recently conducted a global survey of IT decision-makers that produced interesting results.
“Nearly three-quarters (71%) [of respondents] said they plan to move more of their IT functions to the cloud. COVID-19 has accelerated this trend for some businesses that have had to rapidly virtualize their services to respond to the extremely fast-changing nature of business during this crisis,” he said.
This EMEA expansion of Equinix interconnection services will help businesses navigate the difficult months ahead, he said. And they’ll “come out the other side fit for the future and ready to seize the opportunities the cloud offers.”
ECX Fabric is a global interconnection service available in 45 strategic markets. It allows businesses to exchange their data on demand, and between metros through private connections.
Through a single port, customers in any ECX Fabric-enabled market can create and manage on-demand connections. Equinix says it is making it easier for digital businesses to increase their global reach.
“Platform Equinix’s global interconnection capabilities help Aryaka … with our peering and cloud connectivity needs,” said Armin Rishi, Aryaka‘s director of technical partnerships. “This enables us to provide an industry-leading managed SD-WAN service to our customers. Seeing the expansion across several European markets opens up more possibilities for the future growth of our platform.”
