Equinix Customers – New Access requirements coming in October

For anyone with equipment inside Equinix facilities you need to complete a security profile. This goes into place in October. The below is from their e-mail.

Starting in October, we will provide more efficient access to Equinix IBX locations in a globally consistent process, from the front door of the IBX to your cage. To benefit from this new process as soon as it is available, take action now!

Please complete your Security Profile in the Equinix Customer Portal (ECP) by providing the following information:

  • Add a Headshot Photo
  • Create a Global 6-digit PIN
  • Sign the Global IBX Access Form
  • Provide an Electronic Signature

Once your Security Profile is complete you will receive a unique QR code, which can be accessed via the ECP or the ECP mobile application. Beginning October 21st, you will be able to use your unique QR code at the IBX Access Kiosk for an expedited security entrance process.

From our friends over at Lifeline Data Centers

We’re making incredible progress on our new, state of the art Data Center located in Fort Wayne, Indiana. We’re looking forward to meeting local press, officials, and the business community so we’re putting on a free lunch where you can get a sneak peak into this historic facility! Co-owners Alex Carroll and Rich Banta will be available to discuss any questions you may have regarding the technology behind the data center and why Lifeline selected Fort Wayne as its newest location.

Lifeline Data Centers is welcoming the Networking and Information Technology Association of Fort Wayne for their meeting! Please check the NITA website for benefits and membership information.
