Our Vision and History


As the world’s leading interconnection platform and the most powerful Internet infrastructure system in the world, Equinix has a monumental past, unique culture and an exciting future.

From the start, we saw our data centers as places where the fragmented elements of the early Internet and the companies that forged those elements came together to achieve their greatest business ambitions. Today, Equinix interconnects the world, sparking new opportunities that are only possible when companies come together. And we are equally committed to the connections we make. We strive to be respectful stewards of the environment, to invest in our communities, and to improve the places where we live and work, as well as the places touched by the technology we enable.
