Second sentence in the quote by Chris Sharp should read "With nearly 100 data

The corrected release reads:

PLATFORM EQUINIX PROVIDES PRICELINE WITH SIGNIFICANT IMPROVEMENTS IN RESPONSE
                               TIME AND SCALING

 Global online travel leader reduces server count and power consumption while
                           expanding infrastructure

Equinix, Inc. (Nasdaq: EQIX), the global interconnection and data center
company, today announced that The Priceline Group, a leader in global online
hotel reservations, is leveraging Platform Equinix™ to scale its operations
rapidly and meet the growing demands of the online travel industry. Through
the utilization of a virtualized architecture in Equinix’s DC6 International
Business Exchange™ (IBX®) data center in Ashburn, Virginia, Priceline has
reduced its server count by 40 percent and achieved a 50 percent reduction in
power consumption since deploying at Equinix. As a result of the deployment,
Priceline has also improved its response time significantly.

Highlights / Key Facts

  * Prior to turning to Equinix, one of Priceline’s two U.S. infrastructure
    deployments was housed in a Tier 1+ colocation facility that had a number
    of limitations including a lack of key redundancy features, required power
    density and a peering fabric.
  * Priceline needed to expand its infrastructure to continue to scale its
    business and wanted a modern data center facility that offered geographic
    separation from its existing site. The company was looking for a provider
    with a Tier 3 or better rating, carrier neutrality with access to the top
    telecommunication players and the ability to develop internet peering
    relationships.
  * Platform Equinix provides Priceline with a global footprint of IBX data
    centers, and the ability to connect with partners and customers via
    Equinix’s business ecosystems and a global marketplace. Together these
    components help Priceline accelerate its business by safeguarding its
    infrastructure, improving performance and enabling peering with the widest
    variety of partners.
  * Priceline is also deployed with Equinix in London and is currently
    migrating to a large suite in Equinix’s newest IBX in Slough.
  * The Priceline Group includes Booking.com, priceline.com, Agoda.com and
    Rentalcars.com and provides online travel services to more than 180
    countries in Europe, North America, South America, the Asia-Pacific
    region, the Middle East and Africa.

Quotes

  * Ken Jones, senior vice president of technology operations, The Priceline
    Group:
    “After visiting Equinix’s facilities in Washington D.C., New Jersey and
    London, we were convinced that Equinix was the data center provider for
    us, particularly given such benefits as best-in-class colocation and
    carrier neutrality. In the Ashburn facility, for example, we are a cross
    connect away from peering with more than 150 partners. The Equinix data
    center campus environment also allows us to scale quickly without needing
    to excessively over-provision for the future.”

  * Chris Sharp, general manager, cloud and content for Equinix:
    “The Priceline Group has found in Equinix a global provider that is able
    to support its global expansion while also achieving reduced application
    response times, increased access to carrier and peering partners and easy
    deployment in our highly secure facilities. With nearly 100 data centers
    in 31 major business markets, Equinix is the right choice for companies
    such as Priceline to rapidly deploy a scalable, global footprint while
    maintaining our premium standards of performance, reliability, security
    and network choice.”
