Interconnection Oriented Architecture™ Enables Leading Digital Supply Chain Provider to Transform Content Distribution Model for Media Industry
REDWOOD CITY, Calif. - Equinix, Inc. (Nasdaq: EQIX), the global interconnection and data center company, today announced that ContentBridge, a leading provider of digital supply chain solutions for the media and entertainment industry, has turned to Equinix to implement an Interconnection Oriented Architecture™ (IOA™) that will enable the company to transform its digital content distribution solution to a fully cloud-based, distributed model. By utilizing Equinix Cloud Exchange™, ContentBridge is able to gain secure, direct access to multiple cloud providers to enable rapid, secure content delivery. Equinix will be discussing this deployment in booth #11304 (in the Connected Media Pavilion) at this week's NAB Show, taking place April 16- 21 in Las Vegas.
ContentBridge enables studios, distributors and aggregators to deliver movie, television, short-form and music content to digital media retailers more efficiently than traditional postproduction operations. Driven by a need for a robust and scalable solution for its digital supply chain business, ContentBridge turned to Equinix to improve its delivery model by gaining access to the thousands of cloud and network service providers inside Equinix's global platform of 145 data centers in 40 markets around the world. In addition to creating a seamless cloud infrastructure, by working with Equinix, ContentBridge is also able to achieve industry-leading scalability and expansion, and extremely fast delivery to multiple content delivery networks (CDNs).

service provider ecosystems, and the ability to integrate data and
analytics at the edge.
