Pexip selects Equinix to support rapid growth

Enterprise videoconferencing and collaborations solutions provider Pexip has deployed in Equinix International Business Exchange (IBX) data centres globally. It has also leveraged the company’s internet access (Equinix Connect) and infrastructure and ecosystem integration (Equinix Fabric) solutions.

To support its fast-growing business, Pexip chose Platform Equinix to build a resilient digital infrastructure and interconnect with multiple ISPs and cloud service providers to deliver consistent videoconferencing experience for its employees and customers in more than 190 countries. Equinix IBX centres are located in Amsterdam, Frankfurt, Hong Kong, Silicon Valley, Singapore, Sydney, Tokyo, Toronto and Washington DC. The company’s clients include Spotify, Vodafone and PayPal as well as public sector organisations.

Having at least two upstream ISPs in each market and direct fast path connections to major content destinations, Equinix Connect enables Pexip to deliver the resiliency, low latency and high-quality performance its enterprise videoconferencing customers demand. In addition, Pexip is also accelerating its on-demand and secure cloud connections with Equinix Fabric to connect to cloud services and its distributed digital infrastructure on Platform Equinix.

Oystein Hem, the CEO of Pexip, said a sustainable solution that removes the hassle of infrastructure management from clients was imperative.

“Talking to our existing and potential customers, we recognised a growing need for a solution that guarantees them control over their data without the hassle of expanding and managing servers and compute capacity.

“With Equinix’s virtual network services, Pexip can enable our customers to focus on growth instead of infrastructure and compute management and support them on their cloud migration journeys. At the same time, we are able to extend Pexip’s capabilities to a larger audience and meet the requirements of more organisations in a more sustainable way,” he said.

Leveraging Equinix Connect in multiple metros across the world provides Pexip the convenience of having one vendor for its colocation and internet services, eliminating the need to contract with and deploy solutions from multiple ISPs that often leads to an inconsistent user experience. Pexip also has the flexibility to connect to the internet either as a primary or secondary access solution, enabling the business to scale as its usage requirements grow.

Videoconferencing is an environmentally friendly collaboration solution which not only helps reduce the carbon footprint of companies but also reduces operating costs. Equinix and Pexip share a common outlook on sustainability with both companies announcing a common ambition to reduce their carbon footprint. Equinix is the first in the industry to commit to reaching climate-neutral by 2030 globally, backed by science-based targets and a sustainability innovation agenda, while Pexip plans to be carbon-neutral by the same timeline.
