Breakdown of Equinix's Suites at the Infomart
It appears that Equinix operates many 'data centers' in the Infomart. Equinix's website lists DA1, DA2, DA3, and DA6.
In reality, they are different suites in the same building. DA1 was Equinix's original suite and part of the company's launch into six markets in 1999. DA3 was acquired in 2010 from Switch and Data. DA2 and DA4 were organic expansions before Equinix acquired the Infomart building in 2018.
