Equinix IBX data centers are designed with power systems that have built-in redundancy, full Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) systems with up to N+1 levels or greater, and backup generator systems in the event of a local utility failure.

Air conditioning & cooling

Precision HVAC systems cool the most demanding high-power deployments. The HVAC system provides appropriate airflow, temperature, and humidity to provide optimum conditions for equipment operation and to minimise downtime due to equipment failure.


The physical security of each IBX data center is one of our highest priorities. Each data center utilises an array of security equipment, techniques and procedures to control, monitor and record access to the facility. Some key features include:

  • IBX data centers are manned by onsite security on a 24x365 basis
  • All doors, including cages, are secured with biometric hand geometry readers or access cards
  • A silent alarm and automatic notification of appropriate law enforcement officials protect all exterior entrances
  • CCTV digital camera coverage of the entire site, including cages, with archival system, integrated with access control and alarm systems
  • Motion-detection for lighting and CCTV coverage
  • All equipment checked upon arrival
  • Visitors are screened upon entry to verify their identity, and in shared situations, are escorted to their appropriate locations
  • Shipping and receiving area walled off from colocation areas


The following Interconnection options and services are available:

  • System – Overhead proprietary cable tray system with multi-tier ladder rack or underfloor traywork
  • Cross Connects – Enables customers to connect to other parties within an IBX data center or IBX data centers on a campus location using copper or fiber services
