Equinix expands as-a-service offering

Equinix is making its distributed Bare Metal as a Service available in Melbourne and Osaka — which sees the company joining existing markets across APAC — via expansion of its Equinix Metal hubs.

The company says it is in support of increasing demand for fully automated as-a-service infrastructure that remains strong despite market uncertainty and ongoing supply chain disruption. According to the organisation’s ‘2022 Global Tech Trends Survey’, almost three-quarters (72%) of Australian businesses plan on expanding into new markets over the next 12 months. Almost half (49%) nominated Melbourne as the most common location for a local presence.

Equinix said the service empowers companies to enter new markets, without committing to significant technology investment amid the uncertain economic environment, supporting expansion while reducing exposure to unnecessary capex and labour costs. They can tap into Equinix’s digital infrastructure globally and leverage DevOps tools to deploy, maintain and scale their applications to create digital advantages through the company’s interconnected technology ecosystem.

“The launch of Equinix Metal in Melbourne meets the growing need for private low-latency digital infrastructure. With on-demand and flexible interconnectivity now available in both Sydney and Melbourne, businesses can instantly access dedicated compute capacity at software speed, automating interconnection and the foundational network infrastructure they need to support the transformation of their digital infrastructure,” said Guy Danskine, Managing Director, Equinix Australia.
