Performance and Reliability

According to The 451 Group, it is estimated that the desktop virtualization market will be worth $5.6 billion by 2016. Included in this market are cloud-based Desktop-as-a-Service (DaaS) environments where enterprises and managed service providers (MSPs) host their virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) servers in the cloud. End users depend on fast access to applications and content through these virtual desktop environments and cannot afford to wait out high-latency "boot storms" to start their workday.

Equinix Performance Hub deployments deliver:

  • 15% faster page load times
  • 27% fewer network hops for more consistent performance
  • 40% less variability in end-to-end transit time

Highly Efficient Applications and Content Delivery

DaaS is just one use case where businesses need to provide an efficient interconnection architecture that is flexible enough to meet a variety of applications and content distribution, performance and budget requirements. Equinix Performance Hub™ provides an open architecture, enabling companies to design a CDN infrastructure that leverages a number of WAN optimization techniques that lower latency and increase bandwidth.

Performance Hub can be distributed across Equinix's 145+ global data centers in the world's top business markets, reducing the distance for content and applications delivery and minimizing packet loss. They can also be configured to meet specific customer and application performance service-level agreements (SLAs), such as video streaming in a media asset workflow process or video conferencing in a Microsoft Lync environment.


High-Performance, Cost-Effective IT Infrastructures

Equinix Performance Hub helps you optimize efficiency and performance for CDNs and reduce network latency between corporate and branch offices, or between corporate offices and customer sites while keeping WAN costs affordable. They can also dramatically reduce the high cost of putting WAN optimization devices at every location by placing them only at Performance Hub locations. Our test results show that we have customers within our Equinix International Business Exchange™ (IBX®) data centers that have saved (on average) 25% on network bandwidth costs with a Performance Hub implementation.

Simplified Backup and Recovery

Availability and fast recovery of applications and data are critical to delivering a high quality of experience (QoE) to your employees and customers, and to keeping your company's productivity and revenue from grinding to a halt. In the case of streaming video providers, the ability to recover high-quality copies of videos in real time could mean the difference between your customers renewing their subscriptions to your online services or searching out the nearest Redbox location. For DaaS users, it could mean the difference between starting their workday as soon as they reach their desks or starting their cars to grab a latte while their desktops boot up.

Replicating your IT and applications and content delivery infrastructure with Equinix Performance Hub deployments in any of Equinix’s 145+ global Platform Equinix™ data centers provides you with a robust and reliable disaster recovery (DR)/business continuity (BC) environment. Equinix IBX data center operational reliability provides >99.99999% (on average) global uptime and a minimum of N+1 power redundancy.


More than 1,400+ networks within our data centers give our customers numerous ways to create diverse network routes and ensure service resilience and redundancy. Also, in many cases, Equinix has installed redundant fiber lines to connect buildings within our data center campuses and in metro areas.

Leveraging the low latency and high bandwidth links between the corporate data center and DR sites enables you to rapidly recover content and serve it up to end users and customers without them ever knowing there was an outage. By distributing Equinix Performance Hub nodes in Equinix data centers worldwide, you can deploy a global BC and DR strategy.
