Add Equinix Metal services to Solution Builder
In order to provide holistic designs and cost estimates including all things digital, it would be great to have the ability to include Metal instances in the Fabric / Network Edge Solution Builder. Metal is already listed under Service Providers, so this might be the next logical step
Change minimum term for Network Edge to 1 day
Customers should have a better and more cloud-like experience on the Network Edge platform and not be bound to 30 days of useage / payment, especially with an IAC approach
Improved SLA Framework for Digital Services
Innovate the current Product Policy framework that supports customer-facing SLA guarantees to support expanded set of digital services capabilities, platform-level services and varying commercial models (usage, committed, etc) in a clearer and more aligned manner.
Equinix Metal branded Cold-Storage offering
Suggestion from partners in the space, for EQX-Metal to have a cold storage-aaS offer. Cheap and deep to allow for edge storage solutions.
Diverse Azure ER VCs from different Metros
It would be great to have the option to create redundant Virtual Connections from different Metros. Currently, the only way to do this would be to create mutliple ER circuits on Azure side, which would be connected with a single connection each (or have double-redundancy end to end with double the costs on both sides)
Support EU Taxonomy for Instance Level Power Consumption
Customers and partners would like to have power consumption reporting for instances, projects or tags of instances. This could be provided in a reporting interface in the Equinix Metal console or via a reporting API. Referenced information can be found here that is driving this request: https://finance.ec.europa.eu/sustainable-finance/tools-and-standards/eu-taxonomy-sustainable-activities_en
Metal Managed Infrastructure & Network Monitoring
Native monitoring for Metal infrastructure and networking similar to AWS CloudWatch. This service should provide users with alerting, logs, and event data they can use at their discretion.
Metal Virtual Private Cloud (VPC)
A secure & programmatically isolated private cloud hosted on Equinix Metal's IaaS platform. Users will be able to leverage the powerful, as-a-Service infrastructure of Equinix Metal while enjoying the data isolation of a private cloud for a variety of use cases.
