Hurricane Electric extends global presence in Equinix

Equinix has announced that Hurricane Electric is extending its global IPv4 and IPv6 network to Equinix International Business Exchange (IBX) data centres in Asia and Europe. This expands Hurricane Electric’s global footprint to a total of 17 IBX deployments in anticipation of rapid global Internet traffic growth and the widespread migration to IPv6 as the Internet of Things becomes fully realised.
In addition to Frankfurt and Munich, Hurricane Electric most recently deployed in Hong Kong (HK1), building onto its existing points of presence (PoP) in Chicago (CH1), Dallas (DA1), Los Angeles (LA1), New York (NY9), Paris (PA2), Seattle (SE2), Silicon Valley (SV1 and SV8), Singapore (SG1), Tokyo (TY2), Toronto (TR1), Washington, D.C. (DC2) and Zurich (ZH1).

To reduce latency and optimise performance for a variety of Equinix customers, Hurricane Electric cross connects with more than 1,200 customers. As a result of Hurricane Electric’s extensive deployments across Equinix’s global footprint, it is a prime user of the Equinix Internet Exchange, home to more than 1,000 networks, content and cloud providers peering via an Ethernet switching fabric to gain network efficiencies.

Mike Leber, president, Hurricane Electric, said, 'Hurricane Electric has seen a number of massive changes to Internet infrastructure over the years, and has negotiated this consistent need for rapid scalability through our data centre strategy. Today, we are finally on the true cusp of a widespread migration to IPv6, which we have prepared for with our latest IBX deployments. We are live in 22 countries now, many through Equinix, and look forward to realising our goal of being present in 100 countries by continuing to proliferate our offerings through strategic colocations.'
