Equinix – empowering the world’s digital leaders


Equinix is the world’s digital infrastructure company. We interconnect industry-leading organisations in finance, manufacturing, mobility, transportation, government, healthcare and education across a cloud-first world.


Where did we come from?


Founded in Silicon Valley in 1998 as a vendor-neutral multi-tenant data centre provider where competing networks could securely connect and share data traffic, we chose a name that reflected our company’s focus on EQUality, Neutrality and Internet eXchange—Equinix. And we began building the global platform our customers would need to make digital business happen: Platform Equinix®.


Where are we today?


Today our over 230 data centres in 65 markets on five continents connect enterprises, networks, services and innovators. Digital leaders worldwide harness our trusted platform to bring together and interconnect the foundational infrastructure that powers their success.


Thousands of leading enterprises have a presence in our global data centres, putting new opportunities with service providers, partners and customers within easy reach. Whether you’re building a history-making product, blazing an industry-first business model or pioneering a new way to collaborate globally, Equinix provides the global reach, the rich ecosystem and the service excellence today’s enterprises need to compete and win.

In the past, digital infrastructure was a business enabler. Today, it is a primary source of competitive advantage. Technology trends are accelerating the pace and scope of change, inspiring digital leaders to reimagine every aspect of how they architect infrastructure to stay out front.

What does the future hold?

Consumption models must transform, enabling companies to create digital infrastructure in innovative ways that are increasingly simple, virtual and partner-rich. In a connected world in which businesses collaborate in real time across distributed ecosystems to develop and deliver their value, an interconnection-led approach to infrastructure is essential.

We see a future where digital leaders assemble infrastructure in minutes, anywhere in the world, on demand from an ecosystem of providers.

To help them realise this future, Equinix is: 

  • Elevating foundational infrastructure as a choice of physical and virtual network, compute and storage capabilities around the world. 

  • Embracing automation to enable infrastructure to be consumed self-service and on demand for maximum business speed and agility. 

  • Expanding our ecosystem of connected customers and partners and giving them new ways to transact and create value together.

These innovations are equipping digital leaders to access all the right places, partners and possibilities they need to succeed.
