Since its founding,
- The addition of DC12, which features a flexible data center layout, provides capacity to meet the growing need for interconnection, multi-cloud deployments, and connectivity to network and content services. It is part of the Equinix Ashburn campus in
Northern Virginia, one of the most network-dense Equinixlocations worldwide and a strategic communications hub for the eastern United States. Customers can choose from a broad range of network services from more than 200 providers as well as the leading cloud platforms including AWS, Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud Platform, Oracle Cloud and others through the Equinix Cloud Exchange™ and direct connect services.
- In addition to its
Washington, D.C.area data centers, Equinixalso operates a data center campus in Culpeper, VA, that was acquired earlier this year from Verizon. Strategically located 60 miles from Washington, D.C., the Culpepercampus is another ideal location for government agencies seeking interconnection to key partners within one of the most secure and technologically sophisticated data center campuses in the eastern U.S. Designed to meet the highest government standards, these IBX data centers accelerate Equinixrelationships in the government sector, complementing the Ashburncampus and strengthening Equinixas a platform of choice for government services and service providers.
- The Global Interconnection Index, a market study published recently by
Equinix, found the U.S. to be the largest and most advanced region for private traffic exchange, with the Ashburnarea hosting the largest concentration of network participants and becoming a hotbed for most of the world's internet traffic. The Washington, D.C.metro area also represents one of the four largest interconnection metros in North America, and is forecasted to see Interconnection Bandwidth growth of 39% annually, to 323 Tbps by 2020. Equinixhas a long-term goal of using 100 percent clean and renewable energy for its global platform, and continues to make advancements in the way it designs, builds and operates data centers with high energy-efficiency standards. The design elements for DC12 represent the green standard for all future Equinix IBX data center builds. DC12 will be a LEED Gold Certified building. It is expected to meet the strict water reduction standards, and will feature state-of-the-art indirect evaporative cooling ( IDEC) technology which dramatically reduces water use.
