In a nutshell

  • Big Network on Equinix Metal allows you to seamlessly expand the networks of  popular Cloud Providers’ networks into Equinix Metal, Equinix Network Edge, and Equinix Colocation. Connect your on-premise, hosted, and cloud infrastructure over a secure, private, self-optimized SDWAN to improve performance and reduce complexity.
  • Privately transmit  VLAN and IP traffic across the global Internet, without the complexity of IPSEC-based solutions and the cost associated with static IP addresses. Traverse NAT and CGNAT without requiring special configuration, and treat your bare metal infrastructure as a distributed, private, and homogenous cloud to accelerate deployment and simplify operations.
