When our founders started Equinix in 1998, they envisioned a place where the information-driven world could grow and thrive. They wanted to ensure the vitality of the digital economy at a time when the Internet was revolutionizing the way businesses shared information—and exceeding its capacity for growth. Now, as we move into the interconnected era, Equinix is protecting, connecting and powering the digital economy by bringing more companies across 44 markets on five continents.
Equinix founders, Jay Adelson and Al Avery, had a vision that the best way to improve security and reduce latency along the digital value chain was to shorten the distance between end points. So they built carrier-neutral data centers where networks could directly interconnect to exchange and scale internet traffic.
