MAPS & SOLUTION DIAGRAMS

MAPS

Global maps

Framed global map

The framed global map style provides a closer/compacted view at regions in which Equinix data centers are located.

Global map

The global map gives an unobstructed view of the entire world. The version shown above is the Equinix Cloud Exchange Fabric interconnection map and is the only version that should use the ECX Fabric interconnection lines.

Incorrect global map treatments

Secondary colors should not be used to represent locations unless Equinix Red and Black have already been used and additional colors are needed.

Map should not use secondary colors other than gray.

SOLUTION DIAGRAMS

Conceptually, the newly updated Equinix solution diagrams are very simple. There is only one Platform Equinix defined by a red box. What you put inside is what is located on the platform. We have reduced the use of color and icons to help keep the visual clutter down, allowing for a clean, simple and consistent look and feel.

Example diagrams

  • Products should be represented in Equinix Red, not in a secondary color.
  • Clouds should be vertically stacked or arranged in a layered cluster.
  • Secondary colors should only be used to provide clarification or detail when necessary.

Incorrect diagram treatment

  • Do not use red “disc” to represent Platform Equinix.
  • Do not use multiple colors and line styles.
  • Clouds should be outlined in Equinix Carbon and follow guidelines; do not create clouds in any secondary colors.
  • “Platform Equinix” title should be Gotham Black, not Book, Medium, or any other weight or font.
