Rescale is collaborating with Equinix to offer Rescale’s suite of HPC solutions via the Equinix Cloud Exchange. Equinix and Equinix Cloud Exchange enable enterprises to easily migrate their on-premise infrastructure into data centers and connect to multiple cloud service providers via a single port, the companies report. By working with Rescale and providing access to its new product, ScaleX HyperLink, Equinix will enable secure data transfer to and from Rescale’s multi-cloud big compute environment, the company reports. ScaleX HyperLink is a fully managed service with high availability and low latency.
By working with Equinix, Rescale now offers Equinix colocation services to ‘lift and shift’ a customer’s hardware into Equinix’s secure and reliable International Business Exchange (IBX®) data centers. The collaboration enables enterprises to continue to use their capital investment in a private cloud mode via ScaleX HyperLink and enables bursting to unlimited on-demand compute resources via Rescale’s managed global multi-cloud network. Additionally, by moving hardware into an Equinix IBX data center, enterprises will have access to private, carrier-neutral, and carrier-dense interconnections. These private connections are reportedly secure with no packets traveling over the public internet.
Enterprises can use ScaleX HyperLink, by taking part in Rescale’s managed pay-as-you-go, on-demand cloud model for burst requirements. Enterprises may choose to have their data travel via private networks instead of public internet to ensure they meet data security requirements. This is a high-speed, low-latency interconnection between on-premise IT and the public cloud.
