Equinix, the global interconnection and data center company, today announced that it will open five new International Business Exchange™ (IBX®) data centers on four continents to create more capacity for global companies to connect to their partners, customers and employees. By providing this capacity, Equinix is playing a major role in advancing the digital economy's interconnected era, in which businesses are demanding increasing levels of interconnection to accelerate business performance.

Re-architecting IT towards a dynamic and distributed infrastructure

• In today's world, instant interconnection with partners, employees and customers is essential to compete and succeed. But as the level of interconnection required to thrive in the digital economy grows, enterprises are struggling to keep up, given tighter budgets, limited resources and security worries.
• Equinix has observed a critical business requirement driving demand for interconnection capacity the need to interconnect people, locations, clouds and data. Interconnection is essential to deliver a rich, ubiquitous user experience with the agility and actionable insight to enable new business models and enhanced productivity.
• To address these business needs companies will need to forge business advantage by collaborating in communities with other enterprises via secure, reliable and instant connections. In anticipation, global enterprises such as American Infrastructure, Box, CDM Smith, GP Strategies and HarperCollins are building out their IT infrastructures for maximum connectivity and global scale.
• With more than 147,000 interconnections already established among its customers, Equinix offers the world's leading global interconnection platform Platform Equinix™.

Introducing five new data centers
In the coming weeks Equinix will bring five new data centers online across its global interconnection platform of more than 100 data centers, for a total investment of $277M and representing an additional 4,200 new cabinets. In addition, these sites will add over one million square feet of new data center space at full build to the 10+ million square feet present in the existing global footprint, increasing the scale of Platform Equinix by more than 10 percent. The five markets where Equinix is opening new IBX data centers are epicenters for global data and communication flow.

• New York - The NY6 data center in Secaucus will serve the world's largest financial, media and enterprise companies with premium colocation services and will meet enterprises' need for larger footprints to deploy data-intensive applications closer to the edge.
• Singapore - Asia-Pacific markets are in a period of rapid expansion, and Singapore is at the center of this high-growth region. SG3 will be Equinix's largest data center in Asia-Pacific and Equinix Singapore is the most densely networked metro in the region.
• Melbourne - Melbourne is a hub for software companies and a center of Australian economic activity. The ME1 data center will mark Equinix's entrance into this market and provide customers with the opportunity to interconnect to leading companies and accelerate performance of their digital supply chains.
• London - The LD6 data center, located in London Slough, marks a major milestone for Equinix as well as the United Kingdom's (UK) digital sector. The flagship UK data center was built to meet escalating demand for interconnection capacity across the region's fastest-growing campus and is a virtual financial center with 25 percent of European equities trades originating inside Equinix.
• Toronto - TR2 will be a state-of-the-art Equinix data center located downtown, just one mile (1.6 km) from TR1 home to one of Canada's most robust trading ecosystems, with participants that include alternative trading systems, market data providers, risk management service providers, traders and banks. The two IBXs are tethered by Equinix's Metro Connect and carrier-provided fiber, creating a highly interconnected business ecosystem.

Additionally, the London to New York route is the second largest international Internet traffic route globally with more than 1.82 Tbps of peak traffic.
