CloudFlare expands with Equinix data centres

International Business Exchange data centres to aid in CloudFlare traffic dispersal.

By Ben Sullivan

Equinix has announced that CloudFlare, a website optimisation and security firm, has expanded its points of presence in North America, Europe and Asia-Pacific.

The expansion was rolled out via Equinix International Business Exchange data centres, and locations include Amsterdam, Seattle, Silicon Valley, Hong Kong, Toronto and Washington.

This move more than doubles CloudFlare’s footprint within Equinix’s data centres and leverages the density of its interconnections to cloud partners and customers, is part of CloudFlare’s strategy to bolster its global presence, enhance security and optimise the performance of its cloud-based content delivery network.

Joshua Motta, director of special projects at CloudFlare, said: "Equinix has been a key partner to us every step of the way. No other company would have been able to help us scale as quickly as Equinix did on a global level. Becoming a part of the greater content delivery network ecosystem through Equinix, and taking advantage of its platform and connectivity options, enables us to better serve our existing customers and grow our business within new geographies and industries."

The expansion shows the rising importance of Equinix in connecting the enterprise to data centres.

This week, NetApp announced it will be launching private storage for Microsoft Azure, having already been connected with Amazon Web Services. These connections channel via Equinix’s Cloud Exchange.

Equinix has also struck a deal with EMC to provide Microsoft Azure through its own data centres, helping the cloud services broker to nail down a healthy portion of the enterprise storage market.
