Equinix Builds Fifth Data Center in Zurich

Equinix opened the first phase of its fifth data center in Zürich, making it the leading provider of data center space in Switzerland. The ZH5 International Business Exchange (IBX) is connected to the rest of the Equinix Zürich data center campus, which includes ZH1, ZH2 and ZH4, with a dark fiber ring under 10km long.


The new data center provides customers with immediate connectivity to 90 network service providers, plus SIX Swiss Exchange, the Swiss stock exchange, and Switzerland's two largest internet exchanges—Equinix Internet Exchange and Swiss IX. Customers can directly connect to other businesses within ZH5 or between data centers on the same campus.

Phase 1 of ZH5 consists of 1,060 m2 (11,200 square feet) of high-density-power customer space or 420 cabinet equivalents. When the entire facility is completely built out, the data center is expected to provide approximately 6,670 square meters (71,800 square feet), or more than 2600 cabinets of high-density power customer space.
