Speaking about what the launch means, Ignacio Velilla, managing director of Equinix in Spain, said it's an important step to consolidate Madrid as "the engine of the digital economy in Spain," and involves the expansion of its interconnection campus in the country, reinforcing the company's position as a "hub for southern Europe."
