Data center colocation company Equinix announced May 26 it would be expanding two of its Hong Kong data centers, HK1 and HK2, by adding room for nearly 1,200 cabinets total. The expansion will cost the company approximately $40 million. The HK2 expansion will bring the total capacity for this data center to 2,350 cabinets.
