In scenarios where you require assistance from Equinix Sales team to get a formal quote and place an offline order (that doesn’t start from the Equinix Fabric Portal), the ordering and configuration work flow is:

The basic details that you must provide to receive a quote are:

  • Vendor Package
  • Throughput
  • Choose Single Device or High Availability Pair
  • Location where the device will be instantiated
  • Billing Account Number
  • Choose Equinix-Configured or Self-Configured
  • Subscription or BYOL (provide license key)
  • Cores and Memory (instance size)
  • Contact Information

The Equinix team will create an offline quote.An email will be generated, detailing the quote and providing a link to accept the quote.Once the quote is accepted, a order confirmation will be sent with a link to the Equinix Fabric Portal.
