Equinix Metal™ is the result of a unique combination. In 2020, Equinix acquired Packet, a bare metal leader and champion of cloud native, open-source, and developer ecosystems. Equinix was on its own journey, investing in metal internally to help digital leaders more easily participate in its unique ecosystem.

Packet and Equinix joined together with a vision for foundational infrastructure. The result is Equinix Metal, a globally-available bare metal “as-a-service” that can be deployed and interconnected in minutes. Underpinning our product is a deep passion for building ecosystems, a strong set of core values, and an amazing team.
