O'Reilly Velocity Conference--Equinix, Inc. (Nasdaq: EQIX), a provider of global data center services, today announced that Etsy, the online marketplace for handmade and vintage goods and supplies, has expanded into Equinix's Silicon Valley SV5 International Business Exchange? (IBX®) data center. Etsy already leverages Platform Equinix? in New Jersey and currently runs its off-site disaster recovery and storage infrastructure from Equinix's Silicon Valley SV2 facility.

From its inception, the Etsy community has experienced rapid growth and now spans the globe with buyers and sellers in more than 150 countries. Since 2008, Equinix has supported this growth as Etsy jumped from one million to more than nine million members, and from 250 million to more than 1 billion page views per month. E-commerce customers are highly sensitive to even slight delays in page loads, which can frustrate and turn away users that might otherwise have made purchases. Platform Equinix helps the company minimize downtime without sacrificing speed or service to its customers and as a result helps to maximize revenue for sellers and return on investment in infrastructure for Etsy.

Additionally, Etsy is taking advantage of its proximity to social media partners within Equinix's facilities and has leveraged the digital media ecosystem inside Equinix to create new partnerships with top social media websites and content providers. These relationships contribute to the high quality of service experienced by Etsy's customers and directly impact the bottom line for the company and its community of sellers.

"Etsy was founded to help connect makers with buyers and we have a singular focus to support a positive buyer-seller experience through technology innovations," said Mike Rembetsy, director of Technical Operations at Etsy. "By leveraging Platform Equinix, Etsy is not only able to optimize performance, but also leverage Equinix's proximity to partners and suppliers to continue to scale the business to meet demand."

Committed to operating an environmentally conscious organization, Etsy was drawn to the energy-efficient innovations in Equinix's SV5 IBX. Specifically, Equinix has deployed innovative cooling technologies and received Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification for the facility, which opened in November of 2010.

Chris Sharp, general manager of content and digital media at Equinix, says, "Equinix provides Etsy with the scalability and geographic diversity to meet the company's rapid growth and performance requirements. We look forward to building upon this relationship in the future and helping Etsy provide buyers and sellers the best experience possible."
