Busy Week for Equinix

April 14th, 2011 by · 1 Comment

Equinix (NASDAQ:EQIX, news, filings) has had a rather whirlwind of a PR week, touching down on both US coasts, in Australia, the UK, and across the channel as well.  Enough for a little roundup of their own:

In the US, Logicworks announced the availability its managed cloud solution, called infinCloud, in the company's NY4 and SV2 facilities.  Logicworks is working on what has been a hot topic lately, the ability to offer both private and public clouds in a way that can smoothly please both ends of the spectrum.  Sort of like the old Mounds/Almond-Joy commercials.  'Sometimes you feel like a nut...'   Oops, dated myself there.

Equinix also saw some success in the financial vertical in both Australia and the UK.  Down under, they added alternative trading venu Chi-X Australia to their customer list in their Sydney facility.  Remember Equinix is now building a third datacenter down in Sydney.  And in the UK, the London Meta Exchange has opened a node in the LD4/LD5 facility in Slough.  Slough gets more than its fair share of attention these days from the financial community these days.

And looking eastward to Germany's financial hub, AboveNet took Equinix's Carrier Ethernet Exchange for a spin in tests carried out by EANTC between London and Frankfurt.  AboveNet only recently moved into the Frankfurt market of course, but has been active in several Ethernet exchanges here in the US.

    Is it too soon to look at the physical trading & financial exchanges (ala EQIX) as an extension of Nasdaq or NYSE Euronext and/or their counter-parts ?

    With each exchange, EQIX becomes more undervalued going forward. These are the “stickiest” applications yet….and will not be pulled apart or beaten (technologically, economically) for 10-15 years.

    Like to hear anyone’s thoughts on this…
