Companies mentioned in this article: Equinix

REDWOOD CITY, Calif., June 11, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Equinix, Inc. (Nasdaq: EQIX), the global interconnection and data center company, today announced a number of new clients and business solutions available in its DA6 International Business Exchange((TM)) (IBX(®)) data center, the company's newest asset in Dallas. The new IBX meets regional demand for data center colocation offering connectivity to global service providers, as well as access to the Equinix Cloud Exchange, an interconnection solution that allows companies to quickly build high-performance, hybrid cloud solutions.

Highlights / Key Facts

    --  Dallas' location makes it a natural hub for routing Internet traffic
        between the East and West Coasts of the United States to Latin America,
        making Equinix's Dallas data centers an ideal gateway for connecting
        with new partners or customers in the region.
    --  Equinix's Dallas data centers offer connectivity to over 100 network
        service providers, 55 cloud service providers and 30+ content and
        digital media companies including: Adobe, Akamai, Telmex, Comcast,
        Edgecast, Level 3 Communications, Sprint, Time Warner Cable, Walmart,
        Yahoo and Zayo.
        --  Deployed in Equinix Dallas and Washington D.C. data centers, Clear
            Government Solutions (CGS) is a cloud service provider for federal
            agencies. Building on its deployment in DA1, CGS was the first
            tenant of DA6, which enabled them to rapidly pursue the federal
            government's security certification from The Federal Risk and
            Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP) for Cloud Computing
            Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS).
        --  Global Capacity combines its One Marketplace solution with Equinix's
            Performance Hub architecture. Available through nine Equinix data
            centers, including DA6, this powerful combination greatly benefits
            enterprise customers seeking connectivity to any of the more than
            975 network service providers available inside Equinix.
    --  The Equinix Cloud Exchange, an advanced interconnection solution that
        enables seamless, on-demand and direct access to multiple networks and
        clouds, including Microsoft Azure ExpressRoute, is available in DA6. The
        Equinix Cloud Exchange gives cloud consumers direct access to the
        services they need to build sophisticated hybrid cloud solutions.
    --  Across five data centers, Equinix has invested more than $100 million in
        the Dallas/Fort Worth metro area since 2000. With the addition of DA6,
        at full build, Equinix's total Dallas footprint will exceed 230,000
        square feet of data center space dispersed over five facilities and one
        of Equinix's most network-dense campuses.
