Aug 10, 2022 | Posted by Abdul-Rahman Oladimeji

New York Internet has announced the takeover of space at the Hudson Street carrier hotel. Equinix formerly occupied the space. NYI is an infrastructure and managed services provider. It also had a presence at the building before expanding to Equinix's former space. The deal is a result of a joint venture between NYI and QTD Systems, which acquired the former Equinix space in a transaction that officially closed on August 1, 2022. 

Equinix first announced its plans to exit some leased data centers in the country in May 2021. The NY8 facility at 60 Hudson Street was among the facilities it planned to exit. Equinix's lease at the facility was due to end next month. According to NYI, its data center footprint has doubled due to the takeover. 

The co-founder and COO of NYI, Phillip Koblence, said: "With the accelerating pace of digital transformation, the role of 60 Hudson Street as the preeminent home for global carriers in New York City becomes invaluable in terms of meeting the growing connectivity needs of customers." He continued by saying: "With this integration, NYI grows in its ability to serve as the premier facilitator of access to this global interconnection gateway while making deployments at 60 Hudson Street simpler and more cost-effective."
