Equinix Bare Metal new generation - Bandwidth



Most of the modern workloads require a high capacity bandwidth of at least 10Gbps. The Equinix bare metal all have twice with 2x 10Gbps. We tested the maximum reachable throughput with iPerf

Please keep in mind that thee maximum values presented here may not represent the maximum possible bandwidth, only the communication between 2 identical machines in the same network.
