Equinix Expands Its Presence Across Asia Pacific

Equinix, the interconnection and data center company, has expanded in Hong Kong with the opening of its fifth International Business Exchange (IBX) data center, known as HK5.

Built in close proximity to financial data center hubs and subsea landing stations, the new US$32-million facility is tailor-made to meet demand for interconnection from the city’s financial services firms and other industries. It is scheduled to open in the fourth quarter of 2017.

HK5 should play a crucial role in providing interconnection, which is a key piece of the infrastructure on which Hong Kong’s most successful industries—such as financial services and FinTech firms—rely to drive innovation, remain competitive and continue to grow.

Apart from HK5, Equinix recently announced a series of expansions in Asia-Pacific, including Hong Kong, Melbourne, Singapore, Sydney and Tokyo. With the addition of HK5, Equinix will have 30 IBX data centers in Asia-Pacific, and its total global footprint will cover more than 180 IBX data centers across 44 markets.

Samuel Lee, president, Equinix Asia-Pacific: “With the recent data center expansions in Singapore and Sydney, and now the opening of HK5, Equinix continues to expand its presence across Asia Pacific. Our ongoing growth signifies our commitment to the region and to developing our global footprint to benefit our customers and support growing digital business needs. The launch of HK5 will enable our customers in Hong Kong and beyond to have access to the vast interconnection opportunities needed to innovate and grow.”
