Equinix made headlines back in Q3 after Integral Development Corp went live in Equinix’s LD4 data center back in September. The Equinix facility LD4 sits just outside of London, which is well utilized by the financial services industry for being the foreign exchange (FX) data center – this location adds to an already existing location in the U.S., i.e. Equinix NY4.
