With its initial deployment in Equinix’s DC6 International Business Exchange™ (IBX®) data center in Ashburn, Virginia, Badgeville is utilizing Equinix’s ability to directly connect to public cloud services to increase application performance and improve customer experience.

Highlights / Key Facts

  • The ability to directly connect to the public cloud within Equinix IBXs allows customers to connect their IT infrastructure directly to the cloud through a private fiber optic connection that can reduce network costs, increase throughput, and provide more consistent network performance than Internet-based connections.
  • Using this direct connection, Badgeville has achieved millisecond latency between its infrastructure in the Equinix IBX data center and the infrastructure that remained in the public cloud, resulting in improved performance for customers.

  • The move to Equinix has resulted in a 15 percent improvement in response times from the Badgeville application delivering a better customer experience. In addition, Badgeville has seen a 40 percent reduction in operational costs.
