This year, Equinix is celebrating 20 years, and I’ve been here for almost all of them. I was here before Equinix had a single data center and I sweated out our early close calls. I’ve watched Equinix reach two decades, and we still have the same spirit I felt when I first walked in the door: We believe anything is possible, and we’re ready to work as hard as possible to prove it. That gives me a lot of confidence about the future.
Equinix’s first “Walk in the Woods” was last August, and it’s most recent was last month, with more planned for this summer. The program’s foundational concept is “a better me and a better we” and it aims to create healthier people who also happen to be healthier employee
On June 4th, 2015 Equinix opened the doors to NY6, our latest data center in the New York metro. Several hundred guests, VIPs, celebrities, media and customers joined in the opening day festivities at the top of The Refinery Hotel in Midtown Manhattan. Check out the highlight reel and photos below!
All week long we’ve been lighting up the Equinix Twitter feed from the floor with exciting news about this announcement and other activities happening at the conference.
It’s clearer to me than ever that our commitment to investment and strategic partnerships – especially our recent alliance with Microsoft and the availability of Azure ExpressRoute in our global IBX data centers – is key to our success.
