London is one of the largest and fastest growing data center markets in the world. To respond to this demand, the new UK Equinix facility which opened in April 2010 will provide 290,625 square feet of gross space (27,800 square meters), making it the company's second largest IBX data center in Europe (after the FR2 IBX data center located in Frankfurt, Germany) and more than doubling the company's footprint in the strategic London market when fully built-out.
Named LD5 and located on the outskirts of London, this state-of-the-art data center has been built to meet growing demand for premium colocation and network exchange services, particularly from financial services firms and cloud service providers operating in the UK capital.
LD5 has been built on the same campus as Equinix's existing LD4 IBX data center. The two facilities are connected by more than 1,000 diverse dark fiber links, enabling customers from across the campus to easily grow their operations and directly exchange business information.
Opened in the fourth quarter of 2007, the LD4 IBX data center is currently operating at more than 90% occupancy. The LD4/5 campus currently provides customers with a wide range of connectivity options, with access to more than 35 carrier networks as well as the London Internet Exchange (LINX). It is also home to Equinix's Financial Services offering, an active community of execution venues and other financial market participants that locate in close proximity to each other in order to directly exchange data, speed up execution times and increase trading volumes.
