Equinix invests $34m in new Warsaw data center

Global interconnection and data center company Equinix Inc (NASDAQ:EQIX) today announces that it is developing a new data center in Warsaw. The new International Business Exchange data center, known as WA3, is set to open in the first quarter of 2020.

It will offer state-of-the-art colocation, as well as a host of advanced interconnection services. By bringing this capacity to market, Equinix is helping Polish businesses to advance their business digitization and cloud transformation initiatives, as well as enabling global businesses to expand their digital operations in Poland.

The new investment in WA3 is one of many new builds in Equinix’s growing global platform – Platform Equinix® – which consists of more than 200 data centers and enables connectivity to customers and partners across digital supply chains.

Currently, Equinix has more than 350 customers in Warsaw with over 190 network service providers, and over 60 cloud service providers. This rich business ecosystem provides the opportunity for businesses to directly connect with one another in a secure environment with increased performance.

The first phase of WA3 will add 475 cabinets and more than 1,400m2 (15,200 ft.2) of colocation data center space. The WA3 data center will incorporate many of the latest standards in building innovation, such as a mist system for fire suppression. By providing the increased capacity in Warsaw, Equinix will expand its role in advancing the digital economy, in which businesses are demanding increasing levels of interconnection to accelerate business performance.

Equinix is helping Polish businesses to advance their business digitization and cloud transformation. With the WA3 IBX, Polish businesses will have the ability to leverage other Equinix solutions including Equinix Cloud Exchange Fabric and Equinix SmartKey for security key encryption. WA3 will also offer access to Equinix’s Internet Exchange (formerly PLIX) which enables network operators, including ISPs and content providers, to easily and effectively exchange network traffic with over 180 peers.

Equinix previously announced that it will invest $45 million over the next five years in a Product Development Center in Warsaw to design advanced, customer-inspired, software-defined networking products; develop virtual IT infrastructure capabilities; and perform data science-backed IT infrastructure research aimed at accelerating global digital business. The PDC in Warsaw is one of three Equinix innovation locations of its kind globally, in addition to Singapore and Silicon Valley.
