Equinix shortlisted for the Datacentre Dynamics 2007 Award for Innovation
Equinix Inc. (Nasdaq:EQIX), the leading provider of network-neutral datacentres and Internet exchange services, has announced that it has been short-listed as a finalist in the Award for Innovation in the Outsourced Environment category of the Datacentre Awards 2007.
The category was open to entries from companies that provide outsourced services to organisations across Europe. Equinix was selected by an international panel of judges based on how it has employed innovative design techniques and operational strategies that benefit customers across single and multiple facilities.
Equinix has achieved this primarily through its customer-focused approach to service innovation and by working closely with customers to understand business requirements, which helps to drive new design conventions and operational strategies.
“Equinix has a culture of innovation and has not only developed new services, but has also ensured that its facilities are cutting edge,” comments Guy Willner, President of Equinix Europe. “Most importantly, our people are among the best trained in the industry and have pioneered ground-breaking solutions to enable our customers to deploy and operate the very latest technology.”
The awards were launched this year by Datacentre Dynamics, the organisers of the Global Conference and Expo Series, and are designed to recognise excellence in facility design and operations.
George Rockett, Awards Producer, says: “There are stories of real success and achievement that the industry needs to make public and this Awards evening will be part of that. It will be about individuals and teams, the people who make this industry what it is today, not just about products and technologies. As well as offering peer recognition, the Awards will also represent an excellent opportunity to demonstrate industry best practice.”
Winners will be announced at the Datacentre Dynamics Leaders' Award ceremony which will be held on 4th December at The Brewery, Chiswell Street, London EC1.
