Hosting ToolboxREDWOOD CITY, CA & PARIS — Equinix, Inc. (NASDAQ: EQIX), a leading provider of global data center services, today announced that it is constructing a fourth International Business Exchange™ (IBX®) data center in the Paris metropolitan area. The new data center (PA4), scheduled to open in the third quarter of 2012, will further extend Platform Equinix in Europe to meet strong demand for premium interconnection and colocation services in Paris and across the region.

The location of PA4, near the center of Paris, will be highly attractive to customers, particularly as future data center developments are expected to face long lead-times to secure power in and around the city. Equinix has experienced sustained growth for its data center services in Paris, with the first phase of its PA3 IBX center, which opened in April 2010, now effectively full, and the second phase, due to open in the second quarter of 2011, expected to be full by the time the new PA4 center opens. Equinix customers are already recognizing PA4’s strategic importance in their long-term data center plans, with 20 percent of the space available in the first phase already sold. Read more
