International Business Exchange (IBX™)

IBX stands for International Business Exchange, a space where all kinds of businesses gather from across borders, where our customers can make transactions and collaboration with each other, to create a new value from “interconnection”. It is more than a Data Centre, it is where over 280,000+ interconnections fuel a rapid acceleration of business growth.

It all started with Internet Exchange

Equinix creates an environment that allows various companies to interconnect with each other.

Equinix started in the US in 1998. We set up Internet Exchange locations and called them “Data Centres”, which soon became the place where many network providers and communication companies connect to.

This is how digital economy, made possible by digital transformation, started to form itself. Today our data centres are home of some of the world’s largest financial ecosystems, while our customer base continues to expand particularly in the industries requiring reliable, high-speed communication such as finance and content.
