By Chris Coughlan

Equinix, announced that it has been named to the Fortune 500 list, ranking #461.

Equinix claims this is due to the growth and market acceleration over the past few years, powered by its expanding global footprint and vast customer and partnership ecosystem.

The company says it now powers interconnection for more than 10,000 of the world’s leading businesses, including more than 50% of Fortune 500 companies.

In Asia-Pacific, Equinix operates 46 data centres across 12 metros, providing access to the region’s thriving banking, commerce, manufacturing and telecommunications marketplaces.

Equinix said that 2020 reinforced the critical role technology plays in our lives every day and the acceleration of investments in digital transformation, cloud, and interconnection. As we navigate towards a post-pandemic world, Equinix remains uniquely well positioned.

Recently, it has achieved its 73rd quarter of consecutive revenue growth and was awarded Data Centre Service Provider of the Year by Datacloud Global Awards 2021. In addition, this year is set to be one of its most active build years ever, with 36 major projects underway across the world, 15 of which are in Asia-Pacific.

Jeremy Deutsch, President, Equinix Asia-Pacific said, “Today marks another incredible milestone for Equinix, we are thrilled that, for the first time in our company’s history, we have ranked on the list of Fortune 500 companies!

"At Equinix, our customers are at the centre of everything we do, and we are glad that our dedication to this has paid off.
