Equinix opens second data centre in Sofia with USD 19 mln investment

Friday 12 April 2019 | 08:46 CET | News
US IT giant Equinix officially opened its second data centre in Bulgaria following strong demand for Equinix services in the country, according to local news agency Novinite citing the company. The investment amounts to USD 19 million. The centre's opening was attended by US ambassador to Bulgaria Eric Rubin. Named SO2, the new facility will be only about 1 kilometer away from the first data centre located in the 'Druzhba' neighborhood in Sofia. It will initially have 350 server cabinets but this number will be increased by a further 1,100 later on.
