Equinix, Inc., the global interconnection and data center company, today announced that it has been awarded the 2014 Asia Pacific Data Center Green Innovation Leadership Award by Frost & Sullivan. Equinix was specifically recognized as a trendsetter, leading the industry in the identification and implementation of green initiatives and meeting strict energy efficiency requirements in all leading markets in the Asia-Pacific region.

Equinix was awarded the Green Innovation Leadership Award based on four key criteria: navigational positioning, execution excellence, technological sophistication and total customer experience. To reinforce its focus on green initiatives and energy conservation, Equinix has set a target of 1.45 or lower for its design average power usage effectiveness (PUE). New data centers are designed with this standard in mind, and existing IBX facilities are upgraded to follow suit in response to customer requests for greener colocation facilities.

Every Equinix data center uses technology and techniques that reduce environmental impact. Equinix’s global International Business Exchange™ (IBX®) data center operations and engineering teams have implemented comprehensive conservation and efficiency programs that include energy and water conservation, solid waste reduction, pollution prevention and recycling. In Asia-Pacific, all data centers deploy:

• Energy-efficient LED lighting systems coupled with motion-activated controls to reduce energy consumption;
• Adaptive control systems that reduce power consumption and increase cooling capacity through active airflow management;
• Cold/hot aisle containment that uses physical barriers to reduce the mixing of cold air in data center supply aisles with the hot air in their exhaust aisles, resulting in lower energy consumption and more efficient cooling;
• Variable frequency drives that are deployed in chillers, pumps and fans in Equinix’s HVAC systems to save energy by automatically reducing a motor’s speed and power draw to match lower system loads.

In the Asia-Pacific region, Equinix’s data centers in Sydney (SY3), Hong Kong (HK2, phase 2 and HK3, phase 2) and Tokyo (TY4) have earned Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design® (LEED) Gold certifications for high building standards by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC). The four data centers were awarded for excellent performance in terms of energy savings, water efficiency, CO2 emission reductions and stewardship of resources and sensitivity to its impact on the environment.

Equinix’s first Melbourne data center, ME1, uses indirect evaporative cooling technology for the first stage of cooling while the second stage is handled by conventional air conditioning. In turn, the indirect evaporative coolers offset mechanical cooling loads depending on outdoor ambient conditions, significantly reducing energy consumption.

Through the use of granular controls for Computer Room Air Handlers (CRAH) in Hong Kong, Singapore and Sydney, Equinix can effectively monitor and maintain the temperature, air distribution and humidity in its IBXs, reducing heat produced by equipment. Through the use of an extensive network of pressure sensors and intelligent control algorithms, Equinix can determine the exact amount of air at the right temperature needed to cool its IT equipment, thereby reducing energy wastage due to overcooling and over pressurization.


Amit Kumar Singh, senior industry analyst, Energy & Environment, Frost & Sullivan:
"Equinix’s strong business values are reflected in its commitment to build and maintain green data center facilities in the region, irrespective of its size. The company’s IBX facilities in Asia-Pacific, housing thousands of server storage and telecom equipment, strictly comply with the prevalent environmental standards while minimizing OPEX as well. The company’s competitive strength lies in its green initiatives that were implemented in 2013, which resulted in maximum customer satisfaction and improved profitability and social welfare at large."

Samuel Lee, president, Equinix Asia-Pacific:
"Whether Equinix is building new data centers or upgrading existing facilities, we are committed to reducing our power consumption and carbon footprint globally and regionally. This award not only validates our green efforts over the past few years, but also reinforces our commitment to putting all of our data centers on an aggressive path for efficiency improvements."
