Equinix’s addition of two highly interconnected data centers in Mumbai supports pan-Indian expansion and gives global customers access to one of the fastest growing markets.

Equinix, the global interconnection and data center company, has announced its expansion into India through the acquisition of the India operations of GPX Global Systems (GPX India).

The acquisition is expected to close in Q1 2021, subject to customary closing conditions including regulatory approval.

It will extend Platform Equinix to India with the addition of two world-class, highly interconnected data centers, providing a platform for additional expansion across the country.

Equinix customers will have access to a network-dense data center campus with more than 200 international brands and local companies, including the world’s leading cloud service providers (CSPs), leading networks, content delivery network (CDN) providers, all local carriers, 130 Internet Service Providers (ISPs) and four Internet exchanges.

Both data centers are strategically located in Mumbai, home to the critical IT infrastructure of numerous global organizations and with international connectivity serviced by subsea cables at landing sites located nearby.

Jeremy Deutsch, President, Equinix Asia-Pacific, said: “With McKinsey identifying India as the second fastest growing digital economy, more and more Indian companies will begin to embark on their Digital Transformation journeys, driving up the demand for data center and interconnection services in the country.”
