The service is available via direct connect within Equinix’s London and Frankfurt metros, and remotely across Europe via carriers.
Enterprise customers who plan to build VMware based hybrid clouds will have reduced network costs and more consistent network performance with new private connections.
The data center company said customers can also extend their existing on premises IT infrastructure seamlessly into vSphere hosted private cloud and public clouds with VMware Cloud Air.
The VMware vCloud Air will provide the facility to build the network/architecture spanning all three environments, data security and sovereignty requirements to the customers.
Also, VMware vCloud Air integrates seamlessly with a company’s current IT infrastructure and delivers ease and flexibility to extendapplications into the cloud.
Officials announced the solution is now available via direct connect inside Equinix’s LD5 International Business Exchange (IBX) data center in London and FR2 data center in Frankfurt, with the potential to scale across Equinix’s global data center footprint.
“Today there is strong demand for high performance enterprise-grade cloud services, and VMware is a welcome addition to our growing ecosystem of best-in-class cloud service providers,” said Mark Adams, chief development officer, Equinix.
Last month, Equinix invested $60 million for its International Business Exchange (IBX) in Melbourne to meet demand for interconnection and data center services.
Last year in December, IBM partnered with Equinix to provide IBM Cloud through Equinix Cloud Exchange.
In April last year, Equinix offered Microsoft Azure ExpressRoute in 16 markets in four continents.
