London, United Kingdom, April 14, 2008 - Geo, a leading provider of dedicated fibre networks, and Equinix, Inc. (Nasdaq: EQIX), the leading global provider of network-neutral data centres and Internet exchange services, today announced that Geo has extended its London data centre footprint with a significant expansion into two Equinix facilities. The partnership will give Geo customers access to Equinix’s world-class co-location centres and provide them with the ability to scale their operations and power needs, and increase the reliability and speed of IT operations, while operating within a highly secure physical environment. It is particularly significant for Geo customers in London – an area widely acknowledged to be suffering from space and power shortages.
As a part of the agreement, Geo has successfully connected into the Equinix London-City (LD1) and London-Slough (LD4) Internet Business Exchange (IBX®) centres, and can now offer high-speed, cost effective fibre network services from these locations, giving Equinix and Geo customers the ability to extend their network and take advantage of diverse routes of connectivity into Slough.
