Reekoh and Equinix to Bring Scalable and Secure IoT Integration Platform to Enterprises

Brisbane, Australia, June 14 2017 – IoT Platform-as-a-Service Provider Reekoh, today announced it has partnered with Equinix, Inc. (Nasdaq: EQIX), the global interconnection and data centre company, to offer a fully scalable and secure IoT integration platform to enterprises. With Reekoh’s vendor agnostic approach and Equinix’s rich ecosystems of cloud service providers and enterprise users, this new platform provides highly scalable and secured IoT applications and solutions in interconnected environments.

According to the latest research from IDC , security and privacy concerns are the biggest perceived inhibitors for deployment of IoT solutions in Australia, something Reekoh and Equinix are delivering on with this new collaboration.

Combining Equinix’s low latency, direct, private connections to over 500 world’s leading cloud service providers, and Reekoh’s newly launched IoT integration platform for enterprises, customers will benefit from the most secure multi-cloud integration possible for all kinds of IoT applications.

As well as delivering a number of new features and improvements, Reekoh’s latest product release gives customers the choice of where the platform is deployed – either as-a-Service with the Reekoh Cloud, or using Containerisation to provide infrastructure interoperability and portability with the Reekoh Enterprise edition.

By leveraging container technologies such as Docker and Kubernetes, Reekoh is bringing a market-leading capability to customers looking to take full control of their IoT stack. As well as unlocking opportunities to work with global connectivity leaders such as Equinix, containers are also being utilised within specific application modules to provide further data security and performance monitoring for IoT solutions, and even to enable Reekoh to run on IoT edge devices.

This modular approach has been part of Reekoh’s DNA from the very beginning as it launched one of the first dedicated IoT integration platforms, providing an open “Plugin” framework for connecting IoT solution components, distribution through the Plugin Marketplace, and a visual data workflow design tool called Pipeline Studio.


It is this dedication to providing an agnostic platform for enabling best-of-breed solution components from across the IoT ecosystem that led Reekoh and Equinix to strike up a partnership.

Dale Rankine, Reekoh CEO and Co-Founder explained, “We were very pleased with the opportunity to work with Equinix as it delivers on our core proposition of a vendor agnostic approach across all segments of the IoT value chain.

There’s no doubt that infrastructure plays a massive role in how scalable an IoT solution is, and Equinix’s unmatched global footprint provides the opportunity for the growth we need. Security is also a key area of concern for enterprise customers designing and deploying IoT solutions, so being able to run Reekoh within Equinix’s highly interconnected platform means customers benefit from the global scale, private connections and security that are required to build an enterprise-grade IoT solution.”

With interconnected data centres across 44 markets worldwide, Equinix’s global footprint enables customers using the new IoT platform to bring the service closer to their end-users, regardless of where they are located in the world. For Reekoh, the additional benefit is secure, direct connectivity to Equinix’s extensive ecosystem of clouds and enterprises already deployed inside its International Business ExchangeTM (IBX®) facilities.

Equinix Australia Managing Director Jeremy Deutsch said, “The collaboration with Reekoh marks an important stage in accelerating our own IoT vision. For enterprises considering IoT solutions and deployments, the benefits of a highly interconnected environment are significant. Equinix is vendor agnostic and offers greater security, low latency, direct and private connections. We’re confident that the combined offering from Equinix and Reekoh will allow more enterprises to embrace IoT in their business.”

Reekoh has recently been named by Gartner as a 2017 Cool Vendor for the Internet of Things, and with collaboration with companies such as Equinix, is experiencing fast growth by addressing the growing issues surrounding integration and interoperability for IoT.
