It also allows the company to scale its current Equinix footprint by expansion into these particular datacentres, with Beeks running at nearly 200kva of capacity within Equinix sites. The Beeks Cloud will now operate within ten Equinix datacentres globally, providing ultra-low latency hosting and connectivity within and between these sites.
Russell Poole, Equinix’s Managing Director for the UK and The Nordics, commented, “Beeks Financial Cloud is a key player in our financial services (FS) ecosystem, and it’s great to have them doubling their footprint in two of our leading FS markets – London and New York. By expanding in both LD4 and NY5, Beeks can offer its customers latency in the region of 30 milliseconds between the two cities – a crucial advantage in the trading world.”
Gordon McArthur, CEO of Beeks Financial Cloud, commented, “We are delighted to strengthen our partnership with Equinix by expanding in these sites. The London LD4 datacentre has always proven a popular location for our customers and it is satisfying to be able to continue to meet this demand by adding our third cage. An additional New York site will bring further hosting and connectivity options to our clients.”
