Power

Cabinets with circuit-based power assets are harmonized in all our IBXs. Power circuits for cabinets are available, sold, and installed by Equinix in a way similar to how space and power are sold. Contracts state the limits and draw caps of each pair of installed circuits, based on our IBX policies.

Pairs of power circuits are available in each country. The size of circuits is based on the expected power draw and usage for a cabinet, and varies by cabinet rating in different geographical locations. A standard socket / receptacle denoting their demarcation point is installed for each circuit. The maximum allowable draw on any circuit equals the Circuit-Usable kVA, which is 80% of the size of the circuit (in amps) in North America and Asia-Pacific and 100% of the size of the circuit in EMEA.
