Data center and interconnection company Equinix has announced an expansion of its cloud connectivity service to support interconnections in 37 markets including Hong Kong.

The company has announced that its Equinix Cloud Exhange Fabric (ECX Fabric) interconnectivity service now supports interconnections between all 37 of these metro markets across five continents.

With the expanded interconnection service, customers can use the Equinix platform to privately interconnect clouds, network and services to global data centers.

The new service will also for the first time allow customers to establish on-demand connections between the Americas, Europe and Asia Pacific, and customers will be able to use the expanded service as a primary point of connection to Equinix International Business Exchange (IBX) data centers globally.

ECX Fabric also enables customers to streamline their access to webscale cloud platforms including Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure, Oracle Cloud Infrastructure and Google Cloud on Platform Equinix.

" Our vision is to evolve Platform Equinix into a global platform that interconnects and integrates global businesses at the digital edge. This capability is critical for the digital transformation efforts of many enterprises, cloud providers and network providers today," Equinix VP of interconnection services Bill Long said.

"With our expanded ECX Fabric global connectivity functionality our customers can now privately interconnect to key service providers and across their global digital infrastructure anywhere their business needs to be, at anytime, enabling them to reach anyone in the world, on demand, through a single private connection.”
