Is Equinix coming to town?

The datacentre operator is the largest in the world, but its footprint is currently missing one continent – Africa.

22 September 2021

I am not sure how well, if at all, the name Equinix is known in South Africa, but today, it’s the world’s largest datacentre colocation provider, with just over 220 datacentres in 60 markets on five continents; however, Africa is noticeable in its portfolio by its absence.

Founded in 1998 as a vendor-neutral, multi-tenant datacentre provider, it now boasts an uptime record that is greater than 99.999%, has nearly 5 000 enterprise partners (including the three largest US hyperscalers) and nearly 400 000 interconnections of some sort.
