Cable&Wireless is collaborating with Equinix to become a one-stop shop for global enterprises that require best-of-breed data center services.
This collaboration will strengthen C&W Worldwide’s existing cloud capabilities and will be a springboard from which the company will deliver a comprehensive suite of data centre services, such as co-location, managed hosting and cloud computing services to global customers.
Gartner predicts that, by 2015, 50% of Global 1000 enterprises will rely on external cloud-computing services for their top 10 revenue-generating processes.
C&W Worldwide’s hybrid cloud offering, which brings together the best of managed hosting, multi-tenant and private cloud deployments, will help companies reduce complexity, minimise infrastructure costs and increase business agility. The company already offers a Flexible Computing product in the UK that has been successfully deployed with clients in industries such as facilities management, IT services, media, retail and financial services.
Enterprise customers can expect a complete approach to service management with a single point of accountability for the company’s network and hosted computing infrastructure. C&W Worldwide and Equinix will help customers deal with the complexities of supporting a geographically diverse operation, so that customers can focus on their core business and respond rapidly to changing market conditions and emerging opportunities.
