Equinix this week announced partnerships with two very different cloud service providers.
One is with the German enterprise software giant SAP, whose Customer Relationship Management (CRM) cloud infrastructure can now be accessed directly via private network links inside Equinix data centers. SAP has second-largest CRM market share after Salesforce.

The other deal is with Rescale, a provider of high-performance computing infrastructure as a service. Rescale’s IaaS cloud is also now accessible by Equinix customers through direct connections that bypass the public internet. Rescale will offer access to its new ScaleX HyperLink infrastructure to meet enterprise users’ burst requirements. In other words, if your on-premises data center cannot handle a spike in demand, you’ll be able to add cloud capacity temporarily using this service.
A Big Deal for SAP
The partnership with SAP brings direct connections to the enterprise SaaS at eight Equinix data centers. This is important for SAP, considering that its biggest competitor in the CRM arena — industry leader Salesforce — began offering direct connections through Equinix in February.
“SAP joined the Equinix Cloud Exchange platform to address customer requirements for enterprise hybrid architecture in an environment that lends itself to the very highest levels of performance and reliability,” Christoph Boehm, senior vice president and head of SAP’s Cloud Delivery
