IRVINE, Calif., Feb. 9, 2017 — Synoptek, an Equinix Gold Managed Service Provider partner, was named as the 2016 Equinix Americas New Partner of the Year at Equinix’s 2017 Global Sales Kickoff conference last week by the Executive Team, Channel, and Field Sales organizations. In 2016, Equinix, the global interconnection and data center leader, and Synoptek had introduced the first ever Managed Performance Hub offering. The unique solution was developed to address the needs of organizations struggling to maintain the highest level of network performance and quality of service for global users.

Incredible Results from this Partnership

Synoptek has achieved a new level of success by blending speed, agility, and simplicity to minimize organizational challenges in scaling and managing information technology infrastructure while effectively reducing costs. To name a few successes, Synoptek accomplished incredible results in 2016, launching one of the fastest growing product set, gaining traction in the market’s demand within a fairly short time span, and adding brand new customers that can truly benefit from the core competencies of both Equinix and Synoptek.

“Adding Synoptek to our global partner program has been a great success for Equinix,” said Greg Adgate, Vice President of Global Technology Partners and Alliances at Equinix. “The work we have done together over the past year, specifically with the Managed Performance Hub solution, has been instrumental in providing an entry point for enterprises new to Equinix, enabling them to incorporate cloud into their overall IT infrastructure in a high-performance and cost-effective manner. We are pleased by the enthusiastic reception from the enterprise and look forward to future successes together.”

“Ultimately the results we achieved were a product of the largest cloud foundation in the world, which Equinix’s global infrastructure and our global managed service delivery platform provide,” said Tim Britt, Synoptek CEO. “By combining our IT service delivery capability with the Equinix’s foundation, we were able to deliver value that our customers had not yet imagined in a rapidly evolving cloud market.”

 

A Transitional Strategy with Transformational Impact

Managed Performance Hub brings in the cloud in reach for the enterprise with significant advantages for remote enterprise users in worldwide locations. Enterprises can effortlessly move to the cloud, thanks to easy private cloud deployment, secure and direct connectivity to public clouds, and a seamless way to create a hybrid cloud foundation. Synoptek provides all of the hardware for routing, switching and security. For an affordable monthly fee, Synoptek provides both professional services and/or ongoing 24×7 US-based managed services.

The successful partnership brings a turn-key solution, pairing Equinix’s cloud hosting reliability and performance with Synoptek’s advanced Managed Services capabilities, allowing enterprises to ensure optimum performance 24×7 globally with a single relationship. Ultimately, through the Channel Partner Program, enterprise customers have access to public clouds, private clouds and traditional IT environments – all architected, deployed and fully managed by Synoptek.

“Our partnership has created the perfect fit between two world class firms,” said Ryan Ribary, Solutions Architect at Synoptek. “One for facilities and connectivity of Equinix, the other for delivery of Synoptek. I am excited for the coming year and what it will bring, serving clients globally and solving problems one firm at a time.”
