Hosting ToolboxTokyo, Japan – Reliance Globalcom, the leading global provider of managed network and communication services for multinational enterprises, and carriers, and Equinix Inc. (Nasdaq: EQIX), a provider of global data center services, today announced that Reliance Globalcom will extend its existing points-of-presence in Japan to include Equinix’s Toyko-2 (TY2) International Business Exchange™ (IBX®)data center. The expansion will enable Reliance Globalcom to improve the cost efficiency and capacity of IPv6-enabled global connectivity services to the 230 countries covered by its network footprint. It will also enable all of Equinix’s Tokyo customers to directly access Reliance Globalcom’s advanced VPLS network.

Reliance Globalcom currently leverages Equinix IBX data centers in Singapore, Frankfurt, Düsseldorf, London, Ashburn and Silicon Valley to achieve optimized performance for its connectivity services throughout the globe. The globally recognized reliability and availability of the Equinix IBX data centers will supplement the reach of Reliance Globalcom’s global infrastructure. Equinix customers out of Japan can now connect directly to Reliance Globalcom’s network with no requirement for third party connections – enabling more secure and efficient global connectivity.

“We recognize that Equinix already hosts a community of financial participants in the world, as well as an increasing number of enterprise and cloud service providers in their data centers, and close synergies exist with these sectors and our global business,” added Owen Best, President Reliance Globalcom Asia. “In addition, by extending the diversity of connectivity access to our global network we provide our customers with the security of service and expanded geographic reach that those businesses increasingly demand.” “Our relationship with Reliance Globalcom, a globally recognized provider in the managed service provision arena, further demonstrates our leadership role in operating state-of-the-art data center infrastructure with operational excellence,” said Kei Furuta, managing director of Equinix in Japan. “Our existing community of international and local networks and carriers can also benefit from more efficient connectivity to Reliance Globalcom’s next generation global network at both of our TY1 and TY2 IBX centers.”
