Optimise networks and drive digital transformation through a hybrid multi cloud platform with Colt and Equinix

Success in business depends on rapid innovation and being agile enough to swiftly establish links to new markets, partners and opportunities. Optimisation of current infrastructure is no longer enough.

Transformation of the IT and applications landscape is crucial in driving business innovation where Cloud is the #1 enabler. For enterprises across a wide range of verticals, this is driving a significant cloud adoption strategy – with the on-premise data centre replaced by a hybrid-cloud model, based on co-location in close proximity to digital ecosystems. The advantages of this approach are significant:

40% reduction in network cost by replacing traditional MPLS based solutions: The Colt IQ Network has been optimised to deliver a more secure and dynamic, private connection on a consumption-based model, to the multitude of cloud and digital services providers collocated within Equinix data centers.

Additional savings with hybrid multi cloud approach: Equinix’s leading cloud ecosystem platform can reduce multi cloud connectivity costs and latency by up to 40%.

Software definable and highly secure:  Colt and Equinix can provide a highly secure end to end solution, fully delivered through a software definable platform; from network to cloud enablement.
