The company is a leading authority in the open source cloud computing market and is the regional technology leader for OpenStack cloud software. As the company continues to grow its business and expand its range of services offered, it required a data center that can handle the increased traffic and manage Aptira's operations. This in turn enables the company to provide top tier, low latency, and reliable cloud services. Equinix runs Aptira's VMWare managed infrastructure deployments, which provides Aptira with the stability to provide those services to its customers. Equinix enables Aptira to manage hosted OpenStack deployments, which provides a strong point of difference in the market, as many businesses prefer the open source cloud model, delivering flexibility and cost advantages.
