Equinix to build third data centre in greater Miami area

Equinix,, a provider of global data centre services, has announced plans to build a third International Business Exchange data centre in Florida. The new facility in Boca Raton (MI3) will support strong demand for Equinix data centre services in the greater Miami metropolitan area and provide critical overseas connectivity. Scheduled to open in the fourth quarter of 2012, MI3 will provide 31,300 sq ft of floor space, with additional space available for future expansion. The capital investment in MI3 of US$18 million is already reflected in Equinix’s guidance for 2012.

The Miami area has the sixth highest Internet capacity globally and serves as a key hub for domestic and international routes. Boca Raton is home to several major fiber-optic cable landing stations and MI3 is on the lowest latency route to Brazil, which will allow Equinix to serve high-bandwidth events such as the upcoming 2014 FIFA World Cup and 2016 Summer Olympics in Brazil. With its investment in ALOG, Equinix is in a strong position to offer managed hosting and colocation services from its three Brazil-based IBX data centres to serve the needs of customers looking to expand in the region.
