Digital infrastructure provider Equinix is expanding its partnerships with key Kubernetes companies to run their applications on bare metal.

By expanding support for Kubernetes solutions from leading providers on Equinix Metal, Equinix is making it easier for its more than 10,000 customers to move applications to the edge and closer to the clouds, users, networks, and partners that matter most to their business.

As a de facto standard for hybrid and multicloud workloads, Kubernetes helps organizations operate and scale their applications across any infrastructure.

“Kubernetes is the go-to deployment substrate for new and evolving applications,” said Mark Coleman, senior director of developer relations at Equinix Metal.

“While Kubernetes initially matured in the public cloud with developer-first companies, leaders across all industries are increasingly utilizing it to accelerate their move toward the edge and operate complex hybrid and multicloud infrastructures.”

Through the partnership, Equinix is expanding its Kubernetes ecosystem to help companies simplify hybrid multicloud deployments on a global scale.

With fully documented and tested partner solutions by Elastic Kubernetes Service (EKS) Anywhere, Google Cloud’s Anthos, Mirantis Container Cloud, SUSE Rancher and K3s, Canonical Kubernetes, IBM Cloud Satellite, Platform9, Rafay, and others now available on Equinix Metal, global businesses have both the choice and the stability required to create advantage with their digital infrastructure.

As more global businesses adopt hybrid multicloud as the architecture of choice, enterprise and cloud-native companies are turning to Equinix to deliver interconnected digital infrastructure on demand from an ecosystem of providers.
