Equinix Cloud Enabled Enterprise Webinar Series on Cost-Effective Hybrid Cloud Strategies Starts August 16

REDWOOD CITY, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Equinix, Inc. (Nasdaq: EQIX), a provider of global data center services, today announced the company will host the Equinix Cloud Enabled Enterprise Webinar Series: Cost-Effective Hybrid Cloud Strategies and feature speakers from Equinix, Redapt, Joyent and enStratus. The two events will focus on how companies with a sizable cloud footprint can realize substantial savings by running part of their workload in a dedicated private cloud environment and part in a public cloud.

This webcast series will show attendees how they can gain greater control over their cloud environment and gain greater configuration flexibility; reduced costs for cloud computing; seamless integration between environments and a single, worldwide partner for cloud operations. The two-part series will include:

“Own the Base, Rent the Spike: Controlling Cloud Costs”

Thursday, August 16, 2012 at 10:00 a.m. PDT/1:00 p.m. EDT

Companies with a sizable cloud footprint can realize substantial savings by running their base in a dedicated private cloud environment while bursting into public cloud. This webinar will address how together, Redapt and Equinix enable seamless hybrid cloud deployment and how Redapt can manage and support private cloud administration.

“A Simple Approach to Agility: Solution Based Hybrid Cloud Deployments”

Wednesday, August 29, 2012 at 9:00 a.m. PDT/12:00 p.m. EDT

Many companies do not have budget or expertise required to create a cloud bursting architecture with various providers, yet they still need to take advantage of both Public and Private Cloud benefits. Joyent's public cloud is hosted in various Equinix facilities around the world and uses the same software stack Joyent makes commercially available to enterprises for running private cloud environments. This webinar will review the reference architecture, introduce the players involved and demonstrate how simple it is to create a hybrid environment.
