Zoom Expands with Equinix to Future-Proof and Scale Its Video-First, Cloud-Native Architecture
Currently serving over 66,000 customers that have more than 10 employees, Zoom has become the leader in meeting solutions and unified communications, dramatically changing the way people work. Zoom has played an integral role in shifting the communications culture to a robust video-first approach by delivering a reliable, frictionless platform across devices for users around the world.
As a key element to accelerate its global expansion strategy, Zoom was in search of an industry-leading partner with whom they could securely deploy, directly connect and effectively scale the company's digital infrastructure.
Today, portions of Zoom's digital infrastructure reside within Equinix International Business Exchange™ (IBX®) data centers in nine markets worldwide:
To enhance Zoom's inter- and cross-region capabilities, the company leverages Equinix Cloud Exchange Fabric™ (ECX Fabric™), an on-demand, SDN-enabled interconnection service that allows any business to connect between its own distributed infrastructure and any other company's distributed infrastructure, including the world's largest network service and cloud providers, on Platform Equinix. This enables Zoom to achieve low-latency access to its networks, clouds, partners and customers by interconnecting in close proximity.
ECX Fabric allows Zoom to enable its enterprise SaaS and network service provider customers to directly and privately connect their networks to the Zoom network, enabling the Zoom network traffic to bypass the public internet and establish private connections to its technology partners and customers in real time, removing time barriers and improving go-to-market speed, in a matter of minutes.
Since its founding in 2011, Zoom's platform was engineered from the ground up to be cloud-native and optimized for video, promising simplicity, versatility and value. Zoom's path from startup to public company with high revenue growth—up 96% year-over-year in the last quarter—is a testament to the success of a born-in-the-cloud digital business with a scalable and sustainable business model.
