Equinix colocation data centers -- like no others

Equinix is a good example of how the data center colocation business is exploding. The data center operator is in the midst of a $440 million expansion with plans to build 600,000-square feet of data center space in Washington, D.C., New York, Chicago, Los Angeles, Silicon Valley, Tokyo and Singapore. It claims 1,200 customers, including big shots like IBM, Bank of America Corp., Google Inc. and Amazon.com Inc. About one-fifth of its business comes from being able to directly connect those big companies to one another, also called an Internet exchange or peering; most of the rest is colocation.

We sat down with Margie Backhaus, chief business officer at Equinix, to talk about the colocation market and how Equinix builds its data centers.
