REDWOOD CITY, CA – Equinix, Inc. (Nasdaq: EQIX), the global interconnection and data center company, today announced the opening of its newest International Business Exchange™ (IBX®) data center at its Ashburn campus in Virginia. Named DC12, the $98.5M facility supports the growing demand for interconnection capacity to enable enterprises and government agencies to address new opportunities in the digital economy. The first phase of DC12 will add 1,500 cabinets and more than 57,800 gross square feet of data center space, and provides campus cross-connectivity. At full build, the facility will provide capacity for approximately 3,000 cabinets. With the addition of DC12, Equinix now operates 14 IBX data centers in the Washington, D.C. area.

The Ashburn campus is a major communications gateway to Europe and the largest internet peering point in North America. The DC12 IBX data center offers access to a dense mix of top global networks, cloud service providers, digital content companies and social media platforms, offering enterprise and government agency customers the ability to interconnect with partners and customers to quickly and efficiently exchange critical operational data.


Since its founding, Equinix has invested nearly $1 billion to build and expand its presence in the Washington, D.C. metro area, which is the world’s largest concentration of data centers. Equinix has purchased four additional parcels of land spanning 34.5 acres for future expansion as needed.

The addition of DC12, which features a flexible data center layout, provides capacity to meet the growing need for interconnection, multi-cloud deployments, and connectivity to network and content services. It is part of the Equinix Ashburn campus in Northern Virginia, one of the most network-dense Equinix locations worldwide and a strategic communications hub for the eastern United States. Customers can choose from a broad range of network services from more than 200 providers as well as the leading cloud platforms including AWS, Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud Platform, Oracle Cloud and others through the Equinix Cloud Exchange™ and direct connect services.

In addition to its Washington, D.C. area data centers, Equinix also operates a data center campus in Culpeper, VA, that was acquired earlier this year from Verizon. Strategically located 60 miles from Washington, D.C., the Culpeper campus is another ideal location for government agencies seeking interconnection to key partners within one of the most secure and technologically sophisticated data center campuses in the eastern U.S. Designed to meet the highest government standards, these IBX data centers accelerate Equinix relationships in the government sector, complementing the Ashburn campus and strengthening Equinix as a platform of choice for government services and service providers.

The Global Interconnection Index, a market study published recently by Equinix, found the U.S. to be the largest and most advanced region for private traffic exchange, with the Ashburn area hosting the largest concentration of network participants and becoming a hotbed for most of the world’s internet traffic. The Washington, D.C. metro area also represents one of the four largest interconnection metros in North America, and is forecasted to see Interconnection Bandwidth growth of 39% annually, to 323 Tbps by 2020.

Equinix has a long-term goal of using 100 percent clean and renewable energy for its global platform, and continues to make advancements in the way it designs, builds and operates data centers with high energy-efficiency standards. The design elements for DC12 represent the green standard for all future Equinix IBX data center builds. DC12 will be a LEED Gold Certified building. It is expected to meet the strict water reduction standards, and will feature state-of-the-art indirect evaporative cooling (IDEC) technology which dramatically reduces water use.

REDWOOD CITY, CA – Equinix, Inc. (Nasdaq: EQIX), the global interconnection and data center company and a Gold-level member of the Oracle PartnerNetwork (OPN), today announced a significant expansion of its dedicated, private access to Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) to 16 additional Equinix International Business Exchange™ (IBX®) data centers in North America and Europe. As a part of the expansion, customers can now easily and privately connect to OCI using Oracle Cloud Infrastructure FastConnect within the Equinix FR5 IBX data center in Frankfurt via dedicated cross connects and the Equinix Cloud Exchange™ (ECX). Additionally, the Oracle and Equinix partner and platform integration now provides connectivity to OCI FastConnect via ECX to customers in eight new metros in North America and seven new metros in Europe.

The expansion brings the total number of Equinix IBX data centers where Oracle FastConnect is deployed to six and total number of locations where connectivity to FastConnect is available to 18 metros, globally.

  • New North American metros where access to OCI FastConnect is now available via ECX include Atlanta, Chicago, Dallas, Los Angeles, New York, Seattle, Silicon Valley and Toronto. This adds to the existing North American OCI FastConnect deployment at Equinix in Washington, D.C.
  • In addition to Frankfurt, new European metros where OCI FastConnect is now available via ECX include Amsterdam, Dublin, London, Manchester, Paris, Stockholm and Zurich.
  • This expansion will enable enterprise customers across North America and Europe to migrate and run compute, applications and data workloads to Oracle Cloud in a high-throughput, scalable manner that delivers consistent and predictable performance. This marks a significant investment in the Equinix and Oracle relationship, building upon Oracle’s highly successful and growing OCI FastConnect Classic service previously launched in 2015 and deployed in Equinix IBX data centers in Amsterdam, Chicago, London, Sydney and Washington, D.C.
  • Whether a customer requires direct connection to Oracle as part of a broader interconnection strategy, or if they need to migrate data-heavy applications to the cloud, connection to OCI inside Equinix is a highly scalable solution for many enterprise users. It can further a customer’s efforts to address increasing data privacy and other regulatory requirements and general data sovereignty concerns.
  • Interconnection is paramount for companies across North America and Europe. In fact, according to the Global Interconnection Index, a market study published recently by Equinix, the U.S. is the largest and most advanced region for Interconnection Bandwidth growth, with 82 percent of enterprises’ bandwidth expected to be dedicated to interconnection to networks and cloud by 2020. The Index also found that Interconnection Bandwidth in Europe is expected to grow 44% per annum to reach 1,450+ Tbps by 2020. Europe’s growth in Interconnection will be driven by a number of factors, including data sovereignty and the need for European businesses to exchange information with other businesses and services, like Oracle, in-region.
  • Oracle Cloud delivers nearly 1,000 SaaS applications and 50 enterprise-class PaaS and IaaS services to customers in more than 195 countries around the world, and supports 55 billion transactions each day.

“We are excited to continue our collaboration with Oracle and extend this service to multiple U.S. and European metros. The ability to connect directly to Oracle is an essential strategy for enterprises as they deploy workloads to the cloud. By providing direct access, our mutual customers can create a high-speed, dedicated and low-latency connection that allows them to fully realize the benefits of Oracle deployment, while complying with local data sovereignty regulations. We look forward to ongoing collaborations with Oracle, bringing this solution to additional Equinix metro areas across the globe.” Robert Blackburn, Global Managing Director, Oracle Strategic Alliance, Equinix

“Customers require seamless connectivity from their data centers and networks to Oracle Cloud Infrastructure for their most demanding workloads and applications. With Oracle Cloud Infrastructure using FastConnect in Equinix IBX data centers, customers can provision the private connections they need today and easily scale with their growing business demands. We look forward to helping more customers connect to Oracle cloud using FastConnect and ECX in a growing number of markets.” Kash Iftikhar, Vice President IaaS, Public Cloud Services, Oracle

PALO ALTO, CA – CloudLinux, the maker of the leading operating system for hosting providers, announced today the beta release of the CloudLinux OS Reseller Limits feature, which allows resellers to manage end-user resource usage. Now hosting providers can set limits for the amount of resources each reseller can operate. It gives tools to the resellers to control the resources each end-user has. These resources include CPU, IO, memory, number of processes, and concurrent connections per each end-user.

The CloudLinux OS proprietary Lightweight Virtual Environment (LVE) technology prevents users from bringing down the server by allowing hosts to set up individual resource limits. This ensures that users can never use more resources than was allocated to them, and now the ability to set limits has been extended to the resellers for their end-users.


“CloudLinux pioneered end-user limits seven years ago, yet, the ability to limit resellers was still out of reach for hosters,” said Igor Seletskiy, CloudLinux chief executive officer and founder. “Over the past eighteen months, our team has been working actively on this highly anticipated feature and we are very excited to announce its beta.”

The Reseller Limits feature within the LVE Manager will ensure the stability and security of servers and will allow hosting providers to offer more valuable services to their resellers. It will also empower resellers to expand their offering to their end-users, adjust their pricing models, and optimize space usage.

To learn more, customers can watch the CloudLinux Academy webinar on LVE Manager Reseller Limits: https://youtu.be/0fogW3rOPfQ
