PHOTOS: Our Top Global Shopping Cities! (That Also Host Equinix Data Centers)

The holidays are upon us, along with the start of one the busiest shopping seasons of the year. In the U.S. alone, retail holiday sales are forecasted to reach $965 billion.

In the spirit of the season, the Interconnections blog is offering a look at our data centers in global shopping meccas. We perused a variety of “top shopping cityrankings, and chose places that appeared multiple times, and also host Equinix data centers. We also added a few additional Equinix cities with fast-growing retail sectors (Hello, Shanghai and Sao Paolo).

It’s worth noting that Equinix isn’t just located in top shopping cities – we help make them top shopping cities. We enable the low-latency interconnection between the merchants, banks and customers that make purchases happen in-store, online, via smartphone, or wherever.
