Ericsson and Equinix have developed a joint offering designed to help enterprises capture the true benefits of hybrid and multi cloud adoption.
The offering leverages the Equinix Cloud Exchange (ECX) and the Apcera platform from Ericsson.
The initial target enterprises will be finance and insurance companies in Southeast Asia and Oceania to help solve their challenges on data compliance and regulation and at the same time give the agility that enterprises need.
The finance and insurance industry have strict compliance regulations on data and this limitats their ability to pursue a multi-cloud strategy. Ericsson and Equinix’s joint offering will address this challenge by enabling enterprises to deploy any application on any cloud infrastructure with high performance and secure connections that meet compliance regulations.
“To be able to meet the market demand for hybrid cloud and multi cloud, Ericsson is delighted to partner with Equinix,” commented Ludvig Landgren, VP for network applications and cloud infrastructure at Ericsson Southeast Asia and Oceania.
“We will jointly support enterprises, initially addressing South East Asia and Oceania customers, moving workloads and data across multiple clouds using one port with on-demand, automated connectivity.”
The initial deployment is scheduled for December, 2016.
