To establish Equinix Performance Hub™ solutions, companies must first connect their headquarters and branch offices to the Equinix data centers closest to their locations. Once inside, Equinix Performance Hub enables them to connect conveniently, quickly, and affordably to 1,300+ cloud and IT service providers and 1,150+ communications networks.
Equinix Professional Services (EPS) and our IT services partners guide you through every step of the Performance Hub design and deployment process. We can provide expertise in the following three areas:
Prior to deployment, Equinix Solution Validation Centers can help measure, test and certify individual data center components, as well as how they work together. This way, you can measure the performance of your entire technology stack and make adjustments to get the best return on your investment (ROI) before full-scale deployment.
Create your own Performance Hub design, component selection, connectivity, and deployment; or choose to have Equinix provide your Performance Hub solutions as a turnkey service—either in the solution’s entirety or as modules in select areas where your require additional expertise and assistance. While many companies engage Equinix to build Performance Hub solutions from concept to completion, you may choose a do-it-yourself option at any stage in the process. You may also choose to handle selection and procurement of Performance Hub components or to implement your solution yourself.
