Global data center services provider Equinix is home to 600 electronic trading and financial market participants and also operates a data center at 111 8th Ave.

On Friday, Equinix noted that its NY9 site, which is housed in a multi-tenant building with shared generator infrastructure and fuel service, experienced three outages over a 2-day period due to generator failures that impacted service to several customers. Service was later restored.

As of Friday, five of Equinix’s 8 sites remained on generator power. The company said all sites had ample fuel onsite, and had received fuel deliveries.
