Equinix has completed the acquisition of the Indian operations of GPX Global Systems, receiving two data centres in Mumbai for $161 million as a result. Announced back in August 2020, the acquisition marks the company’s first entry into India.
“India presents enormous opportunities for digital leaders in Asia-Pacific,” Jeremy Deutsch, president of Equinix Asia-Pacific, said. “Bringing Platform Equinix to India not only solidifies Equinix’s position as the leading digital infrastructure provider in Asia-Pacific but also provides a new option to local enterprises and multinationals operating in India to interconnect and manage their digital infrastructure in Mumbai.”
The two new facilities, dubbed Equinix MB1 and MB2, provide an initial 1,350 cabinets, with an additional 500 cabinets to be built out. The facilities total more than 90,000 square feet of colocation space.
