Data centre operator Equinix has announced plans to open its first facility in Bordeaux. The French city will soon see the arrival of the 'Amitie' trans-Atlantic cable system in nearby Le Porge, linking France to the US, as well as the UK. The new data centre will become a landing hub for the cable system, due to start service in Q1 2022, and will provide customers with direct fibre links to Equinix's International Business Exchange (IBX) sites in Paris.
