Equinix is looking to expand in Spain with a new data center in Madrid.
Earlier this week, Equinix announced its plans to open a new International Business Exchange facility named MD6 that sizes about 15,780 sq ft, powered by 4.8 MW electricity and 600 racks capacity.
Equinix Spain’s managing director, Ignacio Velilla said, “The launch of MD6 is an important step to consolidate Madrid as the engine of the digital economy in Spain, and involves the expansion of our interconnection campus in the country, reinforcing our position as a hub for southern Europe.”
Equinix’s MD6 campus is located at Calle de la Pedriza, 12, Alcobendas, and will possibly see two more xScale data centers in near future.
Currently, Equinix has two operational IBX data centers with the names MD1 and MD2 in Madrid, Spain. Equinix also has MD3x a hyper-scale data center facility under its branding of xScale.
As per Equinix’s Q2 results, Equinix is leasing MD6, a portion of the 7MW Madrid 3x facility scheduled to go live in the third quarter of 2022.
Apart from the facility in Madrid, Equinix also has its data centers located in Barcelona and Seville. Back in 2017, Equinix acquired all of its Spanish facilities in a €215 million acquisition.
