Equinix - COVID-19: Keeping the Data centre Lights on During a Crisis
Updated: Mar 16, 2021
Host In Ireland partner Equinix connects the world's leading businesses to their customers, employees and partners inside the world's most connected data centres in 55 markets across five continents. In Ireland, Equinix operates data centres in Northwest Business Park, Citywest and Kilcarbery Park, Dublin.
Over the last couple of months it has been inspiring to see the incredible actions taken by the Host In Ireland partners in the battle against Covid-19 and the issues many businesses face in the midst of the pandemic and we are proud to highlight some of the resources Equinix have adapted to their operation at this time.
Community and Wellbeing
During times like these, it's more important than ever to seek out resources to support our physical, mental and emotional wellbeing and Equinix employees have gathered additional resources to support employees to help them and their loved ones to stay well, manage stress and stay connected.
The Equinix #InServiceTo mindset has never been so important. By being #InServiceTo one another, it enables them collectively to be in service to their customers, to their shareholders and to the communities in which they operate.
In recognition of the essential work being carried out across Equinix’s 200+ Data Centres worldwide, the management team host regular #ThankYouOps sessions so that the wider organization can come together to thank their colleagues in Operations who are working tirelessly to ensure continuity of their business services, especially infrastructure supporting the health, financial, government, and technology sectors that are critical to maintaining public health and stabilising the economy.
In times like these, it is more important than ever to find ways to give back. As part of the Equinix Community and Giving Back programme, employees in Ireland and around the world are currently raising funds to support organisations on the front lines of the coronavirus pandemic.
