Equinix Builds New Data Center in Zurich; Expands Geneva Facility

Equinix, Inc. (NASDAQ:EQIX), a provider of global data center services, today announced plans to build a fifth International Business Exchange™ (IBX®) data center in Zurich (ZH5), and expand GV2, one of its Geneva-based data centers. The investments are in response to sustained customer growth and increasing demand for network-dense, secure data centers in Switzerland. The expansion capital required for these projects is already reflected in the company’s 2012 guidance.

ZH5, located 6.5 km from Zurich city center, is scheduled for completion in the fourth quarter of 2012 and will provide approximately 420 cabinet equivalents. When completed, the site will provide approximately 6,670 square meters of customer floor space and will be built to Gold LEED standards. The site will be integrated with Equinix’s Zurich campus, via fiber ring, offering direct connectivity to more than 75 carriers.

In Geneva, Equinix is adding 720 square meters of new customer space to its GV2 data center. The first phase of GV2, which spread across 835 square meters, sold out in less than two years. The site is one of the highest-density-network locations in the French speaking part of Switzerland, with more than 40 connectivity providers. GV2 received ISO9001 certification for secure access procedures and ISO27001 certification for information security management systems.

In both data centers, Equinix offers its customers access to rich ecosystems and exceptional network density, enabling them to connect to more than 4,000 potential partners, prospects and suppliers via Platform Equinix™. Equinix is seeing strong growth driven by demand in the areas of financial services, cloud and enterprises. Many major brand name customers including SIX Swiss Exchange are already invested in Zurich, as Switzerland continues to thrive as one of the world’s largest financial centers and plays a fundamental role throughout the European market.

“We continuously endeavor to expand our state-of-the art IBXs across the globe to ensure our customers have the infrastructure to grow at their own pace,” said Marco Dottarelli, Managing Director, Equinix Switzerland. “The expansion in Switzerland underlines Equinix’s leadership in the market in terms of connectivity, ecosystems and security.”
