The Company's platform Equinix, combines a global footprint of International Business Exchange (IBX) data centers, a range of interconnection solutions, ecosystems and support. Its customers include carriers, mobile and other bandwidth providers, cloud and information technology (IT) services providers, content providers, financial companies and enterprises. It provides each customer access to a choice of business partners and solutions based on their colocation, interconnection and managed IT service needs. Its colocation offerings include operations space, storage space, cabinets and power for customers' colocation needs inside Equinix's IBX data centers. Its interconnection offerings include Equinix Cloud Exchange, which enables simultaneous, direct and secure connections to multiple clouds from a single port; Equinix Performance Hub, which takes enterprise IT inside any one of its global data centers, and Equinix Data Hub, which enables secure, compliant access to business-critical data and analytics wherever users are located around the globe.

Colocation and Related Offerings

The Company's IBX data centers provide its customers with secure environments that are necessary for optimum Internet commerce interconnection. Its IBX data centers include multiple layers of physical security, cabinet space availability, on-site trained staff, dedicated areas for customer care and equipment staging, alternating current/direct current (AC/DC) power systems, and other and fault-tolerant infrastructure systems. Some specifications of offerings provided by individual IBX data centers may differ based on original facility design or market.

The Company's interconnection solutions enable interconnection and traffic exchange between Equinix customers.

Physical Cross Connect/Direct Interconnections are the physical link between customers and can be implemented within approximately 24 hours of request. Customers may choose to connect to and peer through the central switching fabric of its Equinix Internet Exchange, rather than purchase a direct physical cross connection. With a connection to this switch, a customer can aggregate multiple interconnects over one physical connection with multiple, linked 100-gigabit ports of capacity, instead of purchasing individual physical cross connects.

The Equinix Cloud Exchange is an interconnection solution that enables direct access to multiple clouds from multiple networks around the world. Cloud Exchange provides virtualized, private direct connections that bypass the Internet to provide security with a range of bandwidth options. It allows businesses to connect to many participants (clouds, networks and enterprise customers) over a single physical port, enabling bandwidth allocation among various parties. The Equinix Cloud Exchange Portal and application programming interfaces (APIs) streamline the process of provisioning and managing connections to multiple cloud services and networks.
