Zenlayer expands with Equinix in EMEA and APAC

Zenlayer, a global network and service provider of SDN technology, has announced that it is expanding its colocation and hosting capabilities with Equinix, the leading global colocation provider, into Dubai, UAE and Melbourne, Australia.

Dubai and Melbourne are the latest additions to Zenlayer’s data center portfolio, which includes more than 50 data centers across six continents.  Zenlayer is also leveraging Equinix’s global interconnection and data center platform – Platform Equinix™ – for global scale to reach markets including Chicago, Dallas, Seattle, Silicon Valley, Washington D.C., Hong Kong, Paris, Sao Paulo, Shanghai and Singapore.


The Equinix Dubai DX1 IBX is the first world class, network-neutral aggregation point in the MENA region, offering the densest and most diverse regional and international interconnectivity in an offshore zone.


Equinix’s Melbourne ME1 IBX is the first full-service multinational data center for data exchange in the Victorian market, meeting the strong demand for data consumption and cloud services. This newly built data center also enables Melbourne businesses to connect to leading companies within its robust ecosystem, to accelerate their own business, particularly in networks, financial services, cloud and digital content markets.

All of Equinix’s global data centers have proven operational reliability, with global uptime of 99.9999% in 2015.  Both Dubai and Melbourne data centers are carrier neutral.

Managing Director of Equinix Australia, Jeremy Deutsch, said, “We’re excited to help Zenlayer expand into Melbourne furthering the success of its business globally.  Together with our Dubai IBX, ME1 in Victoria is a truly state of the art data center with a growing and robust ecosystem of clouds, networks and other providers, and we’re pleased to welcome Zenlayer into that thriving environment.”
