2019 has been filled with excitement and opportunities in Australia, with a number of new builds and expansions taking place across the country.  While we are approaching the end of the year, 2019 won’t be complete without another big milestone. We are thrilled to announce that SY5, our eighth International Business Exchange™ (IBX®) data center in Sydney, and our sixteenth in Australia, is now open for business!

Located in Alexandria, the new facility demonstrates Equinix’s commitment to enhancing the local digital economy, providing more capacity and interconnection capability to digitally transform customers’ businesses. We are glad to see that a number of companies, including Servers Australia and AnyCast Networks, have already selected SY5 to put their IT infrastructure at the digital edge. This will enable them to expand into new markets, optimize networks, and deliver premium services to their customers.

SY5 is already interconnected with our other IBX data centers in Sydney, offering customers access to the richest ecosystem of customers in Australia, including over 160 network service providers, 280 cloud and IT service providers, more than 75 financial services companies, and over 60 content and digital media organizations. With Equinix Cloud Exchange Fabric™, SY5 provides customers with direct, secure and dynamic connectivity to distributed infrastructure and digital ecosystems globally on Platform Equinix®.
