Equinix, a global interconnection and data center company, announced the opening of its new Washington, D.C., data center known as DC11 at a major ceremony earlier this month to which eWEEK was invited. The new data center at the Equinix campus in Ashburn, Va., adds to existing data center property on the site. The Ashburn campus is the largest Equinix data center campus in the world and plays a significant role in the company’s expanding global footprint, Raouf Abdel, regional operating chief for the Americas at Equinix, told eWEEK. Abdel said the new DC11 data center provides access to the largest Internet exchange point in North America in terms of traffic with over 400G bps at peak levels, and provides access to more than 200 networks, 140 cloud and IT service providers, and 100 content and digital media companies. It also offers connectivity to an ecosystem with more than 10,000 cross-connects to existing customers and partners, and compliance with key federal regulations and industry standards such as the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) and PCI. Take this slide show tour to see some highlights of Equinix's new facility.
