Equinix Performance Hub

Equinix Performance Hub™ solutions are extensions of your corporate IT network that you colocate in Equinix data centers. An Equinix Performance Hub places corporate IT resources near large user populations in data centers connected to many networks and clouds. This distributed, connectivity-driven approach to data center computing has been proven by Gartner, 451 Group, and many enterprise customers to provide dramatic benefits in application and network performance, as well as in business and IT agility. Equinix Performance Hub solutions can be implemented gradually, without disrupting your budget.

Performance Hub Features

Equinix Performance Hub solutions can be implemented gradually—without disrupting your budget. You don't have to close or move out of existing data centers; you can simply channel future data center investments into Performance Hub deployments as your business needs grow or change. Before committing to full-scale deployment, you can test and measure the impact of Performance Hub designs on your applications and workloads. Equinix Performance Hub provides an easy, affordable, low-risk way to upgrade and future-proof your data center—it's a transitional IT strategy with transformational business impact.

  • Multiple data center deployments—IT infrastructure is strategically located in multiple data centers near high concentrations of customers, partners, employees, and other end users.
  • WAN routes optimized for performance and efficiency—Equinix Performance Hub solutions rewire your corporate WAN using network services and routes that have been evaluated and tested to meet your application performance needs and business requirements (network evaluation, selection and provisioning services are available).
  • Links to your corporate WAN—Your IT infrastructure in Equinix data centers is linked to your corporate data center(s) and/or branch facilities via reliable, resilient, and often redundant network connections.
  • Direct connections to cloud services—Reliable, secure, high-performance connections between your enterprise WAN and multiple cloud services (including hosted private clouds and public clouds), providing the ideal data center platform for transitioning to hybrid cloud computing.
