Equinix Supports Sime Darby Berhad’s Digital Connectivity in APAC

Faced with supply chain disruptions and the exploding volume of data from increased cloud adoption, companies need to securely connect their distributed resources and pivot promptly when market conditions change, without compromising sustainability. To support its digital program and sustainability visions, Sime Darby Berhad, the Malaysian multi-national with reach across Asia-Pacific, has deployed on Platform Equinix® and leveraged Network Edge to digitally transform its infrastructure across the region.

We are hopeful that the collaboration with Equinix will help us seamlessly bridge the distance between our distributed digital infrastructure throughout the region and improve agility with accelerated deployment,” commented Goh Hai Peow, Sime Darby Berhad’s Group Chief Information and Digital Officer.  

Equinix, Inc. supports Sime Darby Berhad through the deployment in its Equinix International Business ExchangeTM (IBX®) data centers in Asia-Pacific. With the support from Equinix’s technology partner Coevolve, Sime Darby Berhad also adopts Equinix’s Network Edge on Equinix FabricTM to achieve secure and stable SD-WAN integration across markets. This deployment allows Sime Darby Berhad to rapidly scale and adapt to external factors by deploying digital infrastructure as needed, eliminating prior systems that required shipment, truck-roll and capital expenditure.

Jeremy Deutsch, President, Equinix Asia-Pacific, remarks: “Our collaboration with Sime Darby Berhad sets an important precedent illustrating that businesses can be digitally competitive in the ever-shifting global landscape and do so in a sustainable way. At Equinix, our vision is to work with our customers to empower sustainable operations through digital infrastructure. As part of our commitment to the wider community, we are proud to support Sime Darby Berhad with their digital strategy across the region.”
