In a nutshell

  • Simplifies the orchestration of Equinix’s three digital products – Metal, Network Edge and Fabric along with other digital products at Equinix and public cloud resources such as Azure ExpressRoute, AWS DirecConnect and others from a single pane of glass.
  • Automates the orchestration of network services and edge applications on the underlying infrastructure and supports multi-cloud (agnostic) strategies connecting the edge to public clouds.

Why we love it

  • Orchestrates a set of Equinix Metal servers along with Equinix Network Edge (or a Port) and Equinix Fabric to get comprehensive cloud edge infrastructure.
  • Provides multi-cloud networking to the cloud edge infrastructure by automating the connectivity to Azure ExpressRoute, AWS DirectConnect, and more.
  • Upon completion of infrastructure orchestration, AES can deploy network services such as 5G core and O-RAN on the infrastructure.
  • Deploys edge computing applications such as CDN, computer vision, machine learning, IoT, distributed databases, and more on the infrastructure.
  • Can be used for multi-cloud networking (MCN), storage repatriation, machine learning at the edge, multi-access edge computing (MEC), 5G, and virtual point-of-presence (vPOP) use cases.
