REDWOOD CITY, CA – Equinix, Inc. (Nasdaq: EQIX), the global interconnection and data center company, today announced the opening of its newest International Business Exchange™ (IBX®) data center in Silicon Valley, located at its Great Oaks campus in San Jose.

Equinix data centers in the Silicon Valley region are the business hub for more than 625 customers and represent the second-largest internet exchange point in North America. With the addition of SV10, Equinix has invested a total of nearly $400 million in the local economy with its Great Oaks campus, and has additional land in the area for future expansion, as demand arises.

Interconnection is paramount for companies in the Silicon Valley campus. In fact, according to the Global Interconnection Index, a market study published recently by Equinix, the United States is the largest and most advanced region for Interconnection Bandwidth growth, with 82 percent of enterprises’ bandwidth expected to be dedicated to interconnection to networks and cloud by 2020. And Silicon Valley represents one of the top four fastest-growing regions within the U.S., with a forecasted 39 percent Interconnection Bandwidth growth through 2020.

Equinix will unveil the SV10 IBX data center at a launch event today, September 14, beginning at 2 p.m. PDT. For more information and to register for the event, please click here.

By utilizing Equinix Metro Connect™, customers in SV10 can also easily and directly connect with customers in the seven other Equinix IBX data centers in Silicon Valley via low-latency dark fiber links between the sites.
  • The initial phase of SV10 will add 37,000+ square feet (3,400+ square meters) of colocation space, and provides campus cross-connectivity into SV1 and SV5, making it an ideal home for customers looking to interconnect to key network and cloud service providers. It will include space for 930 cabinets, and two additional expansion phases are planned. At full build, the facility will provide capacity for 2,820 cabinets.
  • Equinix has a long-term goal of using 100 percent clean and renewable energy for its global platform, and continues to make advancements in the way it designs, builds and operates its data centers with high energy-efficiency standards.

In the latest report about the server market by Gartner, the world’s leading research and advisory company, it has been found that in the second quarter of 2017, worldwide server revenue increased 2.8% YoY, while shipments grew 2.4% from the second quarter of 2016. “The second quarter of 2017 produced some growth compared with the first quarter on a global level, with varying regional results. The growth for the quarter is attributable to two main factors. The first is strong regional performance in Asia/Pacific because of data center infrastructure build-outs, mostly in China. The second is ongoing hyperscale data center growth that is exhibited in the self-build/ODM (original design manufacturer) segment,” said Jeffrey Hewitt, research vice president at Gartner.

Amsterdam, The Netherlands – EvoSwitch, a Europe and U.S. based colocation data center provider with its partner-rich cloud interconnection platform, EvoSwitch OpenCloud, today releases a new white paper titled: ‘How to Build a Better Cloud –Planning.’ Aimed at CIOs, CTOs and IT Directors, the white paper provides expert-input to a business-driven planning process for weighing multi-cloud environments and implementing a hybrid cloud strategy.

As a colocation services provider with its data centers located in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, and Manassas (Washington DC area) in the U.S., EvoSwitch serves a considerable amount of clients with hybrid cloud needs. That’s why the colocation company established its cloud marketplace, EvoSwitch OpenCloud, two years ago. Through this marketplace, EvoSwitch customers would be able to quickly and securely interconnect to a large number of other cloud platforms including AWS, Google and Azure.


Partly based on these OpenCloud, hybrid cloud customer experiences as well as cloud management expertise of the author himself, the EvoSwitch white paper released today provides CIOs, CTOs and IT Directors with business-driven guidance for successfully planning their hybrid cloud strategy. Titled ‘How to Build a Better Cloud –Planning,’ the white paper is written by seasoned data center services and cloud computing professional, Patrick van der Wilt, who serves as the Commercial Director for EvoSwitch.

EvoSwitch’s new white paper ‘How to Build a Better Cloud –Planning’ counts 30 pages and is available in English. It can be downloaded for free at: https://evoswitch.com/white_papers/build-a-better-cloud-part-1-planning/.

Detailed Hybrid Cloud Planning, Deep Buy-In

The EvoSwitch white paper addresses current hybrid cloud challenges and opportunities, and contains in-depth knowledge for CIOs, CTOs and IT Directors on successfully establishing the right planning processes for a hybrid cloud roadmap.

The author, Mr. Van der Wilt advocates that the following factors should be considered when selecting a solid private/public cloud balance and planning a migration towards a hybrid cloud environment: identifying business requirements; identifying hybrid cloud benefits and business outcomes; compliance management; (spread of) cost; identifying and modifying internal organizational capabilities; data sovereignty; asset review & management – both data and people; achieving harmony in connectivity between systems, data, services and hosting infrastructure; and selling the hybrid cloud strategy. He elaborates on that by providing specific tips on planning the appropriate hybrid cloud delivery model.

“Successful digital transformation and migration to a hybrid cloud environment requires detailed planning, and above all a deep buy-in,” said Patrick van der Wilt, the author of EvoSwitch’s new white paper. “Key to hybrid cloud migration success is to explain and sell the processes planned, at every level of migration. Although this paper is intended to provide technical managers such as CIOs, CTOs and IT Directors with in-depth guidance for planning their hybrid cloud journeys, I’ve also included introductory information for non-technical senior managers involved in IT decision making and hybrid IT planning.”

The EvoSwitch white paper includes a variety of hybrid cloud market study results that can help enterprise management to achieve organizational buy-in when planning their hybrid cloud journey. It also contains private vs. public cloud considerations, featuring ’10 Key Pros & Cons of Public and Private Cloud.’ The paper concludes with providing a Planning Checklist with key activities that should be considered in the run-up to hybrid cloud implementation.

Evoswitch experts are already working on the compilation of a new white paper, which will be the sequel to current paper. Where current white paper handles the strategic ins and outs for planning a hybrid cloud journey, the new to be released paper will address the implementation phase.
