Equinix (Nasdaq: EQIX), a provider of global data centre services, today announced the expansion of its NY4 International Business Exchange (IBX) data centre.

The $80 million third phase provides approximately 1,250 cabinet equivalents, enabling Equinix to better service the largest metropolitan area in the United States - a region that includes leading financial firms and some of the largest media and enterprise companies in the world.

"The demand for our data centre services in this metropolitan area, particularly in the financial sector, has increased significantly over the last few quarters," said Pete Ferris, president, Equinix North America. "New York is not only the hub of the North American financial market, but is an important component of the world's financial ecosystem. Our IBX data centres are built for this demanding set of high availability transaction engines, offering the ability to satisfy local demand while scaling data services to bridge to a global audience."

The NY4 IBX data centre, located 11 miles from downtown Manhattan and one of Equinix's eight IBX data centres in the area, is a key component of Equinix's financial ecosystem, a carrier-neutral meeting place for the world's leading financial market participants including trading venues, buy and sell side firms, market data providers, technology providers and financial networks.

Developed specifically to solve the performance challenges inherent to the transaction-intense nature of the global banking and trading communities, Equinix IBX data centres enable financial institutions to architect high-performance infrastructures. The phase three expansion of the NY4 IBX data centre offers new colocation and interconnection opportunities for existing customers and a secure, scalable platform for new customers.
