REDWOOD CITY, Calif., April 18, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Equinix, Inc. (Nasdaq: EQIX), the global interconnection and data center company, today announced that it has become an Advanced Technology Partner in the AWS Partner Network (APN).  The Advanced designation is the highest level an APN Technology Partner can achieve, and it underscores Equinix's ongoing commitment to serving AWS customers by providing direct and secure access inside its global footprint of International Business Exchange (IBX®) data centers.  Equinix first began offering AWS Direct Connect in 2011, and has since witnessed substantial growth in connections to the cloud.  In fact, since the beginning of 2016, customer connections to AWS via the Equinix Cloud Exchange have grown by more than 250%.
