Equinix has formed a multi-year partnership with Nasdaq, Inc, which will help the company scale its NY11 data center in Carteret, New Jersey. This will also support the build-out of Nasdaq's cloud infrastructure.

Tal Cohen, Executive Vice President, Head of North American Markets at Nasdaq, said that the partnership is a "critical step" in the company's cloud journey. According to Cohen, the agreement will allow the company to deliver ultra-low latency edge compute capabilities directly from its primary data center in Carteret, New Jersey. He added: "Our goal with this hybrid infrastructure is to provide new services and products for our clients with added flexibility and low latency, including virtual connectivity services, market analytics, risk tools and machine learning."

Meanwhile, Jon Lin, Equinix President, commented: "The evolution of digital infrastructure in financial services has led to immense opportunities for our customers to grow, scale, and transform. We are committed to Nasdaq, as it leverages our robust financial ecosystem to transform its industry over the next decade and beyond."
