“One of the key learnings companies gained from 2020 is that having a digital infrastructure not only provides a competitive advantage but also ensures survival during extraordinary times,” said Diarmid Massey, SVP, Sales, Asia-Pacific at Equinix. “We’re thrilled to have the opportunity to work with Globe Business to alleviate the challenges facing companies during their digital transformation journey. With data centers spread across the world, our dense ecosystem—and Globe’s robust network—enables businesses to easily and quickly establish hybrid multi-cloud infrastructure by connecting Globe customers to any Cloud service provider.”

Globe sees connectivity as the backbone of transformation and hence the cloud. When it comes to accessing business-critical workloads, it is recommended that it be delivered over a private connection, as it’s more secure, reliable, and faster. Globe Business’ collaboration with Equinix empowers companies to utilize consistent private connectivity without having to shoulder the heavy costs.

Enterprises with Globe Premium Cloud Connect can easily enlist for multiple connections and effortlessly upgrade their bandwidth as they see fit. Customers can also benefit from the solution by being able to choose the data that utilizes a direct private connection and configure its route for more consistent performance. Globe Premium Cloud Connect also bestows customers with more options for bandwidth sizes and reduced bandwidth costs, a clear win for businesses looking to bring in more Cloud-powered initiatives this 2021.
