AT&T and Equinix agreed to embed AT&T NetBond into select Equinix data centers to help facilitate cloud services adoption.

AT&T NetBond helps users to connect to their cloud services using their private AT&T VPN networks instead of via the public internet. The alliance will create the opportunity for cloud providers to allow access to their services via AT&T NetBond from Equinix data centers globally.

AT&T NetBond combines the security features of AT&T virtual private networking with cloud resources to provide access to the cloud and dynamic VPN bandwidth allocation.

"Virtual private networking gives [customers] better protection against internet threats while also delivering the reliability, agility and performance they need when accessing the cloud," said Jon Summers, senior vice president growth platforms, AT&T Business Solutions. "This agreement with Equinix will expand the opportunity for cloud service providers to use our virtual private networking and AT&T NetBond technology to enhance the end user's cloud experience."

The companies expect these capabilities to be available in the first half of 2014.
