PacketExchange Launches Network-as-a-Service in Multiple Equinix Data Centers in Europe

The Solution Enables Equinix Customers Leveraging Cloud-Based Solutions to Access Scalable Bandwidth, On-Demand

LOS ANGELES, CA and LONDON--(Marketwire - May 4, 2011) - PacketExchange, the next generation Ethernet and IP network service provider, announces the availability of its Network-Infrastructure-as-a-Service (NIaaS) solution within nine Equinix data centers across three continents. PacketExchange's NIaaS recently expanded into two Equinix European facilities, Amsterdam and London, providing robust, scalable bandwidth on-demand. The expansion grants Equinix customers access to PacketExchange's global network that offers point-to-point and point-to-multipoint solutions across its globally expansive private Ethernet and Internet network.

PacketExchange's NIaaS provides enterprise organizations the ability to obtain network infrastructure as a fully managed service instead of having to maintain expensive hardware assets, engineering resources, and fixed capacity WAN circuits. The flexibility of Ethernet allows companies to quickly scale capacity as needed, and by building their network infrastructure on the PacketExchange private optical backbone, companies are provided with reliable, secure access to cloud-hosted applications.

With Equinix, PacketExchange's NIaaS is accessible by Equinix customers across nine locations including Amsterdam, London, New York, Chicago, Los Angeles, San Jose, Dallas, Ashburn, and Singapore. With PacketExchange's recent expansion into Equinix's Amsterdam (AM1/2) and London (LD4/5) Campuses, the NIaaS is further available to an array of business eco-systems that include Network Service Professionals, Cloud and IT companies, Content and Digital Media, Financial Services and Enterprise businesses around the world.

"PacketExchange has built a globally robust network that leverages the strength of private and public networks solutions in order to provide a custom data delivery experience for businesses that rely on the cloud," comments Rick Mace, CEO of PacketExchange. "PacketExchange not only provides a reliable and robust infrastructure that optimizes the delivery of cloud-based solutions, but we stand by this service by offering 100% SLA guarantees across our core network."

"We are pleased to welcome PacketExchange into our Amsterdam and London data centers," said Eric Schwartz, President, Equinix Europe. "Our global platform gives network operators the ability to offer services in more markets and our diverse customer base now has access to PacketExchange's fully managed, global network."
