How can we help you grow?

  • Credit for Equinix Metal infrastructure
  • Real time guidance and support
  • Co-marketing efforts, including live streams and events
  • Exposure to Equinix's ecosystem of over 10,000 customers

How it works

Once your startup has been approved, a 90-day technical validation period will begin.

During this onboarding period, you will:

  • Receive up to $25,000 USD in infrastructure credits to test Equinix Metal
  • Have access to "white glove" support, including shared Slack channels
  • Engage in monthly check-ins with our partnerships and engineering teams

At the end of the validation period, we’ll identify an ongoing credit allocation and set up a quarterly business review (QBR) pulse for bi-directional feedback. We’ll also:

  • Support you technically
  • Provide access to our product roadmap
  • Identify marketing and business development opportunities

How to apply

The Equinix Metal Startup Partner program is focused on building relationships and giving back. We focus on technologies that impact our business: languages, operating systems, networking, cloud native and related stacks.

If you’re an existing contracted customer of Equinix or Equinix Metal, please chat with your sales representive before applying.

The key to our long-term success started with Equinix Metal’s Startup Program. Using their automated bare metal, we can now manage multiple environments more easily than traditional cloud providers.
