Equinix will invest more than $4.5bn in acquisitions and organic growth in 2016 which includes the Telecity purchase price. This adds more than 3 million square feet of colocation space in 37 data centres, expanding Equinix’s global interconnection platform to nearly 150 data centres by the end of the year.
This expansion builds on the significant global growth Equinix experienced in 2015 in which the company organically grew its footprint with the addition of five new data centres in key economic centres, including New York, London, Singapore, Melbourne and Toronto. Since then the company has made two significant acquisitions – Bit-isle in Japan (for $275m) in November 2015 and Telecity Group in EMEA (for $3.8bn) which was completed in January 2016. As a result, Equinix has added seven new markets to increase the scale and reach of its data centre platform.
