Hybrid IT deployments are transforming business processes and enterprises are getting closer to the edge due to trends like edge analytics, 5G and IoT, according to the 451 Research Pathfinder report. To compete in this environment, enterprises must turn to a new architecture based on interconnection and leveraging colocation in multitenant data centers.


  • Colocation and interconnection to rich ecosystems will help enterprises regain control over networking
  • Enterprises must have the ability to reach markets globally and interact locally
  • The distance to critical resources and users is becoming a crucial factor -  enterprises can adopt edge computing in ecosystem-dense colocation facilities
Thousands of digital leaders have used Platform Equinix to establish their digital edge in the world’s most strategic locations, leveraging ecosystem choice to create a global fabric that aggregates last-mile access to people and things that directly interconnects services from the widest variety of dense ecosystems.
