Options secures platinum partner status with Equinix

Options, a provider of cloud-enabled managed services to the global capital markets, has secured its platinum partner status with global interconnection and data centre company, Equinix.

Options is a long-standing member of the Equinix Channel Partner Program, and is one of the first managed service providers to have attained platinum partner status with Equinix. The news follows the firm’s recent adoption of additional cloud connectivity services with Equinix Cloud Exchange (ECX) Frabic and the deployment of colocation services in Australia and Canada.
Options currently operates more than forty colocation sites alongside 400 market data and order entry feeds, providing an ultra-low latency environment in addition to connectivity and application hosting.
Stephen Morrow, COO of Options, says: “Our platinum partner status with Equinix represents the culmination of many years of collaboration, innovation and service excellence. From latency sensitive clients seeking the latest liquidity sites and global colocation infrastructure, to organisations embarking on multi and hybrid cloud strategies, Equinix has facilitated the continuous development of Options’ pioneering service offering and full suite of enterprise grade solutions. We are delighted to have reached such an important milestone in our relationship with Equinix and look forward to our combined continued success.”
Equinix Global VP Financial Services, John Knuff, adds: “Financial services companies increasingly require their IT providers to have compelling offerings to meet their digital transformation needs for today with a path for the future. Options continues to innovate for their customers by leveraging the latest solutions available to support these initiatives, like Equinix Cloud Exchange Fabric to support cloud adoption, in key markets around the world on Platform Equinix. We are excited to see them achieve platinum partner status and wish them continued success.”
