REDWOOD CITY, Calif. — October 17, 2016 — Equinix, Inc. (Nasdaq: EQIX), the global interconnection and data center company, today announced that it is offering direct and private access to VMware vCloud® Air™ on Platform Equinix™ in major markets across North America and Europe. Access is available either via Equinix Cloud Exchange™, the company’s cloud interconnection platform, or via Direct Connect, depending on location.
