Data centre provider Equinix has partnered with cloud networking company Aviatrix for a joint solution designed to help enterprises manage multicloud networks.
The move fits in to Equinix’s broader strategy to provide customers with digital services designed to accelerate innovation.
Aviatrix Edge will be available on Equinix’s Network Edge platform across more than 25 of the company’s data centres via a high-performance encrypted connection.
“We are all in on cloud for the agility and speed, but native cloud networking was a challenge we needed to overcome,” said Jim Setty, the network architect at Masco Corporation. “Aviatrix was the answer to those challenges. Now, as a result of this partnership, we have seamlessly extended our Aviatrix cloud network and network management with the global reach of Equinix Fabric.”
Equinix said that its Network Edge empowers organisations to select and deploy virtual machines quickly and efficiently. By adding Aviatrix Edge to the platform, users gain access to a secure means to connect to the cloud without the complexities of managing operational procedures.
Aviatrix Edge also allows for cloud application deployment from public cloud providers like AWS, Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud Platform. By creating an overlay network of transit hubs with automated deployment, users benefit from improved control and visibility.
In terms of security, Aviatrix Edge can use line-rate IPsec via AWS Direct Connect for its encryption, as well as Azure ExpressRoute and Google Cloud Interconnect.
“Aviatrix is very excited to join with Equinix to offer Aviatrix Edge on Network Edge,” said Madhuri Kaniganti, the senior principal product manager at Aviatrix. “The new solution extends Aviatrix Intelligent Cloud Network to Equinix Fabric and onto the cloud, delivering a consistent architecture with operational visibility and control across hybrid and multicloud environments.”
