Wonderful to be back in India with Jeremy Deutsch and Manoj Paul and the whole Equinix Asia-Pacific team! I’m excited about the enormous opportunity for Equinix as we expand our presence to support our customers in their digital transformation efforts in this rapidly growing market, said Charles J Meyers, chief executive officer, Equinix.
