The transaction includes developable land contiguous to the facility allowing Equinix to expand the currently available power supply from 11 MWs to 40 MWs. As one of the 5 data center REITS, the acquisition of the Informart Dallas facility allows it to convert its use of the facility as a tenant to asset ownership.

With this acquistion and a string of other acquisitions over the past year, Equinix is projecting a $5 billion revenue stream for 2018 after recently announcing 2017 revenues of $4.36 billion.
