Web Host ServicesEL SEGUNDO, Calif. – Equinix, Inc. (Nasdaq:EQIX), a provider of global data center services, today announced the opening of its fourth International Business Exchange™ (IBX®) data center in the Los Angeles area. The new center will accommodate the demand for premium data center colocation and network exchange services in the Los Angeles region from companies in the entertainment and digital media sectors.

Located near Equinix’s existing LA3 center in El Segundo, CA, the new 177,000 square foot LA4 center will feature a total capacity of approximately 3,000 cabinets at full build out. The $95 million first phase of the center, which opens today, will support 800 cabinets and more than 10,000 square feet of IBXflex Space, Equinix’s offering for customers seeking office space within the same data center as their equipment deployment.

For many of Equinix’s entertainment and digital media customers in the Los Angeles area, a quality end-user experience is critical to their business offerings. These companies utilize the network-rich environment of Equinix’s centers to implement a robust, high-performance network connectivity infrastructure that provides direct access with a wide variety of high-performance network service providers and carriers. This enhanced infrastructure ensures fast and reliable delivery of content to end-users worldwide.

The new LA4 center is directly linked to Equinix’s three other Los Angeles area IBX centers, including Equinix’s two downtown Los Angeles centers, through the Equinix IBXLink service. IBXLink provides redundant fiber links that enable customers to connect to each other across the four centers as if they were located in the same building, providing customers in the new LA4 center with direct access to the more than 60 carriers and network services providers operating in Equinix’s existing L.A. area centers.

The new LA4 center is part of Equinix’s 2009 expansion program that includes increasing the company’s data center footprint in 10 out of 18 markets in which it currently operates. By the end of 2009, the Company will have invested over $1 billion in expansions since the start of 2007.
