Equinix (NASDAQ: EQIX) has made history by becoming the first data centre operator to be ranked on the list of FORTUNE 500 companies.
As part of the occasion, Charles Meyers, president and CEO of the company, told investors, shareholders, clients and employees: “From our humble beginnings in 1998 with a single data centre serving as a neutral hub where networks could physically exchange internet traffic to our role today as the world’s digital infrastructure company, there is much to be proud of as Equinix has evolved over the past two decades.
“Along the way, there have been many milestones that have made us pause and reflect on our progress: our 100th and now 200th IBX, making FORTUNE’s Most Admired Companies list earlier this year, and most recently achieving our 73rd quarter of consecutive revenue growth.
“It is with immense gratitude and pride that I share with you another one of those milestones – for the first time in our company’s history, Equinix has ranked on the list of FORTUNE 500 companies!”
