Equinix (EQIX) has landed red-hot enterprise cloud storage vendor Box as a customer, striking a deal to host Box's content at 6 Equinix IBX data centers. Equinix's global reach was likely a factor - 4 of the data centers are international. Equinix has long touted cloud services as a growth driver on its earnings calls, though some think the company isn't as well-positioned as pay-as-you-go cloud infrastructure providers such as Amazon, Rackspace, and Microsoft.
