We use advanced security equipment, techniques and procedures to control and monitor access to our IBX data centers. You typically pass through five security checkpoints that include 24/7 manned security stations, mantraps and biometric readers. Our low-profile building design allows a high level of security within the data center.

Green by Design

At Equinix, we design, build and operate our data centers with high energy efficiency standards and a long-term goal of using 100% clean and renewable energy for our global platform.

Our power systems include full Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) systems with N+1 redundancy levels or greater and backup generator systems in the event of a local utility failure. In case of a power outage, batteries turn on immediately, followed within 8 seconds by the generators which can power the entire data center.


To keep equipment operating at its peak, each data center houses a multicomponent temperature control system running 24/7. Your center may include:

  • Variable frequency drives

  • Chilled water pumps

  • Centrifugal chillers and condenser pumps

  • External cooling towers and cold-aisle containment

  • CRAC air-handling units in the colocation area

Note: Cooling system specifications vary by data center location
