Equinix Opens L.A. Data Center with MySpace as Lead Client

Equinix opened a new Internet Business Exchange (IBX) center in the Los Angeles area and announced that MySpace will be its lead tenant. Once MySpace is fully installed, the agreement is expected to generate approximately $6 million in annual revenues for Equinix.

MySpace has experienced tremendous growth and regularly ranks in the top 10 most visited sites on the Web with more than 75 million users. The social web portal is leveraging the network-rich environment of Equinix's centers to implement a high-performance network connectivity infrastructure.

With the aggregation of networks operating within Equinix's centers, the new facility will allow MySpace to cost-effectively execute strategic connectivity and data exchange, or "peering," agreements with key business partners within a highly secure and reliable environment.
