Waters Rankings 2014: Best Datacenter Provider -- Equinix


Scale might be important, but for large numbers of financial services organizations, doing it on their own is too costly a prospect, particularly when it comes to datacenters.



Scale might be important, but for large numbers of financial services organizations, doing it on their own is too costly a prospect, particularly when it comes to datacenters. The modern facilities used by both buy-side and sell-side firms are demanding in terms of security, flexibility, connectivity, and geographical variety, and while tier-one investment banks can justify the time and costs of developing and running their own small-scale datacenters, very few such installations can rival the scale and expertise of a specialist operator.

Redwood City, Calif.-based Equinix is one such operator, and it is no surprise that it has once again emerged top in the best datacenter provider category in the Waters Rankings. The firm’s International Business Exchange (IBX) facilities can be found in 32 markets across 15 countries. It has multiple points of presence in global financial centers, including London and its surrounding areas, New York, Tokyo, Singapore, Frankfurt and Chicago. It offers co-location services for those firms that rely on being the fastest, with a variety of scaled options relating to rack and cabinet set-up, power requirements, and more esoteric demands. Its IBFlex service line ensures that firms’ repair parts are located close to datacenters where they need to be, and even its support operations staff is optimally located through the use of pooled facilities.
