Equinix has built a reputation for engineering its data centers for reliability. The company says its U.S. data centers reached "six nines" of reliability (99.9999 percent uptime) for 2008. That track record has attracted more than 2,200 customers hosting mission-critical equipment in the company's data centers. The Equinix uptime strategy is built atop a redundant power and cooling infrastructure. During a recent visit to Equinix in Ashburn, Virginia, we had a chance to look inside one of the company's newer data centers. We couldn't film the cages or racks, but were able to have a look at much of the mechanical and electrical infrastructure supporting the site. This video runs about 2 minutes, 20 seconds.
